All three gigs over the last weekend went great. First on Friday we played for IJsselpop in IJsselstein. A great little popfestival, which also supports local bands. A pity that this was the last edition of the festival, but we’re glad to have been able to be part of it. On Saturday we were booked for a private party at a small horse ranch in Voorschoten…western style. That was a lotta fun. The folks were all dressed up and there was a lotta dancing going on. And on Sunday we performed at a country & western festival in Arnhem. It had been quite a while since we were booked for one of those, so it made a nice change. Luckily there were no guns allowed, so there was no need to feel unsafe (although we thought we spotted some injuns near the restrooms…). Dutch singer-songwriter Dick van Altena joined us on stage for a Merle Haggard song and the folks really enjoyed the music.
So it had been quite a busy week with four gigs (we had a private party earlier in the week), but the week that lies ahead won’t be. Which ain’t bad, as we’ll have time to concentrate on the forthcoming album for the Excelsior label. So far we recorded about 6 self-penned songs for the demo. It sounds like they’re about ready to be recorded. We’ll keep you posted.
