Eschweiler half past 6, (fast huh) surching for the festival and
driving around Eschweiler for about 30 min. finaly found it and
park the car. The festival started at 7:30 with “The Voice of
Roy Orbison” it’s ok but not my kind of music. Half the show
I see Ray and Jarvis coming into the artist tent next to
the stage, Jarvis saw us and wave his hands to us.
on stage for 30min with a halfplayback show.
First time I heart "Lady Rose 2002" realy good! The
folks on the field are great, hand clapping, dancing and singing
a long with the songs. And many pictures are made from a lot of
fans, realy good to see that Mungo Jerry is very populair in
Germany too, during the gig Ray throwed
some pictures into the audience and many fans tried to get
one. Very great performance Ray !
the gig signature’s next to the stage, now you can see Mungo
Jerry is very populair in Germany, a lot of people wanna have a
signature from Ray. Between the writings Ray did, we shaked
hands and Ray ask the security if his friends (Nienke en me) may
come into the artist room, it’s Ok an Ray introduced us to
Petra, a Mungo fan too (ofcourse) time for coffee and a chat
and Ray signed some sleeves. This time “Forgotten Land
– NL” double CD “Move on – The Latest & Greatest”
and the multi media Cd “In The Summertime 2001” After an
hour Ray’s taxi arrived but his missed it.... another cup of
half hour later again a taxi for Ray and Jarvis and after shake
hands and say goodbye we walked back into the festival, hanging
around and listen to the rest of the bands, together with Petra.
On stage the “Beatles Revival Band” very good music and near
the sound of the fab four. It’s half past eleven when we
walked to the car.
the car and back home for another 260 km. Open the front door
around half past two, Lonneke’s still awake and after a few
wines and a little baguette with France cheese it’s time for
bed (very tired)
