– Melle (Osnabrück) – Vlaardingen 775km
After work I'll called Michel Pohl about
the gig for tonight, I just wanna know on what time the gig was
planned, nine o clock told Michael, watching the clock (half
past 5) I realise we got to hurry if we wanna be on time. Just
around 6 we drove away from home direction Osnabrück were we
arrived just after nine. Shake hands with Ray and the other
bandmembers and a short chat. When the gig started (open air)
there was just around 50 fans but within an hour it was packed
full. Beside the regular blues repertoire they played
"old" hits in a fantastic way, after the gig Ray told
me they practise this songs so if the fans are not really into
blues music Ray can chance the set immediately, and it worked !!
See the different between the original setlist. They played also
a brand new song "Kickin' Back" from the new coming
Bluesband CD, (yes indeed a new CD is in the pipeline) The gig
ended just after eleven but the croud shout for more (Zugabe !!)
ofcourse they came back on stage with an brilliant anchor. After
the show a nice chat with Ray and the rest of the bandmembers
and left 'round one o clock. Very very foggy, we had to slow
down our speed and the highway was closed with a roadblock so we
had to drive to the next town to hit the hightway. Because the
fog and the extra km we came home at 4:30., tired but satisfied.
We can't wait 'til the next gig from Mungo Jerry Bluesband.
Rob & Nienke.
