Someone is making a ton of money off of hinges I guess. The doors to our rooms in the Cultural Center that night proved to be a bit tricky! Victor was the guy who contacted me on Facebook back in earlyand opened the Poland market for us. He hosts this festival every year, and has caricature artists display their art, and most of them are on hand for the show and do quick sketches of people. He always seems to get on Polish television because his event is so different.
He loves blues rock and lead guitar! Hw hosts a radio show in nearby Rzeszow called Blues Attack! I have so many pieces of memorabilia from the show - my caricature by multiple artists, and Victor himself.
I have beer bottles with my face on them, stamps, candy, etc This time we played with a French band called Manu Lanvin and the Devil Blues- a fantastic trio that delivers high energy blues rock.
They also had a couple of guitar players join them onstage - Neal Black and Fred Chapillier. Joining our band onstage was a Polish guitar slinger named Jacek Kieller. Here are a few pics:. The have a great venue: big stage, great sound and lights. And this guy drew one of me:. Look at my nose. This festival is always fantastic. Victor and his lovely wife Ewa and their team always deliver a well-planned evening of music and art.
From Tarnobrzeg, we made the short drive on Sunday to our next gig in Kielce. This would be a the Culture Center- the theater where we played our first gig in Poland back in We also played that night with Manu Lanvin and Devil Blues.
Below is a short video of the drive to Kielce. It gives you an idea of what most of the drives in Poland are like. Lots of country roads like this one. There are big expressways, but if you do any traveling in the country this is what it looks like, Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl).
We have played Kielce a few time now, and have made some great friends there- it is quite nice to have repeat customers! After a nice night's sleep, we set out for a day off in Berlin. We stayed at an amazing hotel thanks to a bunch of Marriott rewards points I used called the Hotel Am Steinplatz. If you visit there someday, this hotel is awesome.
We checked out at noon, hit a music store to pick up a drum head and headed back to Castle Lammers, our Dutch HQ. Eating while on tour is often amazing, but occasionally memorable for the wrong reasons. There was the amazing restaurant that had no menu. It was surprisingly good. A nice day of rest Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl) a bit of shopping in Almelo, and we were ready for a busy weekend of shows. We started Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl) a Thursday night gig at a record store called Vinylparadijs Vinyl Paradise in nearby Geesteren.
Irma and Bart Haselbekke took great care of us while we played a couple of acoustic sets. We had a blast pulling out some oldies for this gig. It was a breath of fresh air among all of the electric blues rocking we do! I got us lost along the way, but we ran into a blues lover named Will.
He escorted us to the bar! The next night we took a short drive up to Essen and played a beer festival. I think our drummer Carl was in heaven. We played a couple of short sets on a tiny stage.
They organized a cool show in a school gymnasium with a huge stage and lights. We saw quite a few people that we have seen down there before, including our French friends Noah and Manu Drui. One guy drove his motorcycle all the way down there from the Cologne area- about a three hour trip.
He asked me to let him know if we ever play near Cologne, and I said "Yeah, we play Leverkusen next Saturday! After a good night's sleep at Udo's farm house, we headed back up to Vriezenveen to play a mid-day Sunday gig at the Het Wapen. This is where we recorded some of our Live in Europe CD back in We played there last spring, and they were having the same sort of shut-down-the-town festival that starts on a Friday and runs through Tuesday. We could use more of this stuff in the US!
It was a bit funny- I asked the guy who runs the bar, Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl), Sander, if we could come back in the fall, and he told me that "No, we don't have the same bands play Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl) the same year, or even next year.
Every two years is about right. And after our show, Sander told us that we definitely will come back next year, and headline on a Saturday night! Like usual, we did see many of the same people as before, but we had a much better response this time, and were joined Peanut Butter - Grace Jones - Walking In The Rain (Vinyl) our good friend Nineke Loedemann who, along with a couple other people, run the Dutch website BluesMagazine.
