Gig'ing live on Facebook tomorrow. With high quality audio

So tomorrow afternoon at 2:30pm we are gonna broadcast live on Facebook the first Superheroes gig since lockdown .... live from a secret location in Waterlooville... We think we have the technology to pull this off with high quality stereo audio and decent video.
It could of course ... all go wrong :) but that's the jeopardy with live music.
For the live stream go to https://www.facebook.com/superheroes.rock at 2:30pm

For anyone interested I figured out how to get a decent stereo audio stream straight into an iPhone using a powered USB hub, any old USB audiointerface  and a lighting to USB camera adapter. 

Connect the USB camera adapter to the iphone. now connect the USB type A port of the adapter to the USB B port on the  hub. Then connect the USB audio interface to the hub using your normal type A to B cable. Use another port on the hub to connect a lighting cable back to the adapter so your phones got charging power. 

Go to your camera ap, choose video ... put some audio into your USB interface and boom, decent sound straight on the video. 

Setlist tomorrow is gonna be 

WILL WE DANCE (SAM FENDER)

BOYS OF SUMMER

    My dads birthday tomorrow so won’t be able to watch sadly. Down in the tube station one of my all time favourite songs plus lots of other greats. 

    Have seen Danny’s band a couple of times - really good.

     Thanks for the comments guys didn’t go too bad in the end although we were rusty.
    using audio direct from the mixing desk straight into a USB stream into the iPhone does certainly sound so much better than just using the microphone built into the phone ... was  a strange mix for our engineer as he had to deliberately mix it wrong what he was hearing in the room so it would sound more or less right on Facebook ... when you’re in the room you hear the acoustic sound of the drums and the amplifiers but obviously on Facebook you only hear what the mics are picking up so it’s a different kind of mix you need. 

    That basically involves mixing the drums higher than you would normally and the vocals under what you would normally

    All in all though went well

    I'm the one in black with the double neck for Hotel and the Stellacaster for the all the other songs. The bass player is also an accomplished brass player who regularly plays the Albert hall in a suit and tie but yeah, he's a rock out character and a party animal
