This week we decided upon trying a new rehearsal space, our current studios were taking our young age and lack of experience for granted by overcharging us and giving us poor quality equipment. The new reharsal studio we tried was Unit 7 Studios in Dudley (picture below), we found that practice was very efficient with great equipment, a laid back atmosphere and affordable prices. we spent three hours there and i'd go as far as saying it was our best ever practice, this sets us up well for our biggest gig yet at the Flapper in Birmingham tommorow night. were in the process of booking more gigs and were also planning on making a progression checklist outlining important checkpoints for us to achieve. Last week we also hit 1500 blog views which is another great milestone!!!

As a band we're currently trying to get as many gigs as possible to build our fanbase. Next friday the 22nd we will be returning to the venue that gave us our first gig Bloxwich Bookmark to their prestigous open mic night where we will be playing our full set for only the 2nd time. We have also secured a massive gig supporting Two Days Late at the Flapper in Birmingham on Thursday the 28th of February. The gig is being put forward by PWS promotions and we would like to thank them for this opportunity. We have been allocated our first ever set of tickets to sell, and they even have our name on!! If you would like to attend our gig at the Flapper get in touch with us on our new contact page.

Last Friday night we played our set in full for the first time, we got some great feedback but also some constructive criticism.An often occurring subject was the lack of depth in our music without a bass player. This week we decided to put an end to this controversy and finally insert bass into our music, our lead singer Mikey has challenged himself to learn bass. This week we also hit over a 1000 page views on our blog and continue to gain more followers on our Twitter https://twitter.com/TheAssistBand

It's been a week full of progression for us as we reach the end of our first month. Firstly we've been rehearsing hard and have finalised our live set, the set consists of 7 original songs and lasts around 20 minutes. Our set will be played live in full for the first time tonight at woody's music bar in Cannock/Hednesford, it's for a Battle of the Bands competition so it should be a great experience. Our blog has also had some changes as we continue to improve the layout and look, the most notable change is the new picture page. Finally we have created a twitter account where you can follow our progress at https://twitter.com/TheAssistBand
