Week 2-European Tour 2015
Our friend, Dan Meyers, is a talented singer/songwriter that lives in Nashville and tours around the world. I think that he’s done 20 or more European Tours and he loves to bring music to our troops! Well, we found out that he was going to be playing some shows in Europe this summer and his first stop would be Germany so we said “you HAVE to visit us”. So he came to Wetzlar and we all cooked together, went hiking and exploring around our little village and then got to go and hear him play at a nearby town.
Well, a few years ago, Joseph and I became friends with Ecki and Alex, two German musicians who are talented and also very lovely people. They put us in touch with a festival happening in the north of Germany, Dünenhof in Cuxhaven. We packed the car and drove up north to play two days with 3 performances. We met a lovely couple there (Valerie and Manuel) and a few cool musicians, one (Samuel Weber/drummer/percussionist/producer) who ended up playing with us for one of our shows! Manfred, who runs the event was one of those people that radiates love.
So, we played a song for the conference that was going on there in Dünenhof and it was an honor to play for the over 1,000 people there! We played the song “Liberty” and mentioned our evening show. What a great audience! The show that evening was packed and the audience was SOOO cool! They sang with us, asked for a few encores and stayed with us through every note. That is something we won’t forget. After the show we met a lot of great people, including a lovely couple, Manfred and Gaby, who ended up booking us to play a show at their house in the end of the summer. The second evening’s concert was great. We got to jam with Samuel Weber impromptu on the drums and then he joined us for almost every song that night! He added such beautiful vibe and flavor!
