Heya Bandsoc! Long time no post!

I'm Dan aka spandexdan on the forums, I'm amazed that my login still works! I'm one of the old exec, in fact, the first social secretary because I didn't want a "proper" job, circa 2004-2007, bands Eighth Day Descent / Fire of Prometheus.
It's a bit of a long shot, but I'm getting married mid-June (Coronavirus permitting) and I was wondering if:
  1. You still have a gig PA
  2. Could I perhaps borrow/hire it for the wedding?

It turns out that organising a wedding/mini-festival is an expensive business and any favours I can get will go a long way!
No worries if that's not possible, I realise it has been a long time since I was involved in the society but I thought it was worth a punt. You can rest assured that if we did get a lend it would be in good hands with three ex-Bandsoc presidents plus a bunch of execs in attendance!

ps what are the metal bands like in Bandsoc these days? Anything good?
ps ps do you still have a social sec?

Hi Dan, I am the current head tech officer (that is at least only for another week or so), if you message me directly we can go over the details of hiring you one, that being said this might be a job for the incoming exec, starting next term, to handle, but to answer your two points, yes we absolutely still have a PA system and we (most likely) will be able to hire it to you for your wedding.

if you want to message me this is my facebook profile:

or you can message the society facebook page here:

Looking forward to hearing from you!

ps metal bands are still a thing! if you want to check out my bands they're here (quality questionable)

ps ps we don't have a social sec anymore, its a combined role with secretary and publicity

Thanks Adam, yeah man life is good, hope you're doing well and still making metal!

Tristan, I'm listening to Shibboleth now and loving it, the vocals are excellent, great work would love to see you lot play at some point.

I'll drop a line to the Bandsoc Facebook group I guess so that the rest of the exec can see what's up.

Yeah man, just riding through this international shutdown. Gonna make some sweet metal about it...

Dan you fucking legend. Congratulations. Hope you’re well. I had to postpone my wedding in two weeks but keeping my fingers crossed for you it all goes ahead in June. 

Wish you and more of the OGs would still post on here.
