Music we play


Well! What do we play actually? Mostly it is what we like to listen too, but not always. Six players, pretty wide age scale in a band and of course every member has his own favorites. But so far we have found so called "golden midway". Check out the first demo CD down below.

Well, maybe it is time to mention, that Old Spice is more or less a cover band, so we do what someone has done already.

We have selected our programme from 60's to 90's. But basically we all are ol' rock lovers, so that gives the direction to our music. We also play different types of music. Some hard rock, ballads, rock'n roll, pop and Finnish rock, so called "Suomirock". Almost all of our music is made and performed for people to dance, and it is suitable for summer events, firm parties, weddings, festivals. Hmm, waltz, polka, tango and other OLD dance music is out of question and we play them just in extreme distress :-)


 

Old Spice Chart

Millennium Edition


Here on the right is the list of the bands and songs we have been playing and practicing during the last few years.

 

Some of the songs run like a train, but there is still lot to do to make all of them work as we like. But that's what makes playing even more interesting and fun, the knowledge that as long as we are not as good as the original ones, we have a road ahead :-). So practically it means more rehearsals, more time with good friends and ...sometimes maybe another beer too.

 

The present goal is to produce a CD during the winter 2000 (studio is engaged already), and besides that, to have couple of good musical events and happy audience.

Cover It! Old Spice first CD published

We were at the studio on 15th - 16th January, 2000 and the result is now done.

Then, after long discussions, we finally decided the name of our CD, Cover It!
At below you can see the front cover of it. Simple and b/w it is, and will be.

Due the limited time we had, unfortunately we could put only four songs to our first CD. To pick the songs was quite a hard job, but after discussions and train session we ended up to following songs:

  • Pandora's Box (Procol Harum)
  • Lodi (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
  • Stealer (Free)
  • One Day (Gary Moore)
