Middelharnis - Vlaardingen - Middelharnis 155km
This time not hours to drive to visit a Mungo Jerry gig, just 'round the corner. The festival was organised for the 14th time, mostly tribute bands and a few oldies, this time the Rubettes' (half playback vocals !!) and Mungo Jerry. We spoke with Tim in the dressingroom before the gig, the rest of the band was on the road and arrived a bit late so first on stage The Rubettes instead of Mungo Jerry. The venue was packed full with very enthusiastic public dancin' and singin' the whole show through, wonderful. The band did a great performance (as usual) I don't lie if I say it was the best of the evening, some people near me in the public who saw Mungo Jerry for the first time were very surpriced about the show they did, compliments all over, and ofcourse I did some advertising for the band. The evening was strict arranged and for that reason there was no time for an extra song. After the gig we spoke the bandmembers in the dressingroom and all signed the festival poster, Ray signed some single sleeves I brought with me.After a nice chat Ray left, James and Matt stay for a few more beers and as far I saw they had a goodtime. We left Middelharnis just after midnight and arrived home just before one. Compliments to the organisator Sam v/d Welle, he did a very good job, thanks for the backstage passes.
Keep on rockin'
