1/1/2009 - London 2008
So...I'm back in Holland. My gigs in London went very well and there have been very good responses to my songs from the audience.
On December 23rd I was performing for The Hidden Away Music Session, at Berties Bar in Wimbledon.
I met David, the promotor and he's a very nice chap! There would be more musicians performing that night as well, and I was to be the opening act. The sound was good, and the place was really crowded.
Despite some people being a bit noisy in the background, there were actually enough serious listeners, and after my performance I met some people who told me they really digged my sound!
Which, of course, is very nice to hear....
My second gig was on December 26th, Boxing Day...I spent my time between the two gigs walking the streets of London, and spending some quality time with David and Margaret, my friends from London.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were really nice! On Boxing Day it was actually very cold and after a long walk during the daytime I prepared myself for the gig of that evening.
When I arrived at The Gaff Club I was welcomed by Gene, the owner. A nice and easygoing guy!
The Gaff Club is really a nice place, and the stage was great!!! This friendly guy named Barry did a great job on getting my sound together and he also took a lot of pictures with my camera. Two videos will be posted online soon!
Again, there were some very enthusiastic people, and for me it was simply great to be playing in London, the city that I do so love...
So what's next? I hope to complete my album this year and write some more songs, because inspiration struck me!!! And hopefully I will be on another stage in London this year again!
Cheers for now,
