Mungo Jerry Bluesband

Melle - Germany

Saturday 20th August 2005


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 I got to hurry if I want  be on time. Just around 6 I drove away from home direction Osnabrück were I 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 half ´n 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, 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 I left 'round one o clock. Very very foggy, I had to slow down my speed and the highway was closed with a roadblock so I had to drive to the next town to hit the hightway. Because the fog and the extra km I came home at 4:30., tired but satisfied.

Traveled: 775km
