October UK/Spain Tour
We recently arrived back from our UK/Spain tour. We were away for almost 5 weeks and clocked up around 4000 kilometres on our camping car. Unfortunately the Rag Mama Rag mobile broke down on us in Kent, leaving us without home and transport for 8 days. Needless to say we had to hire another vehicle and spent several nights in some rather expensive hotels. Fortunately my sister (Ashley`s) offered us a room for four or five nights during the tour, so lots of thanks to her. The whole episode set us back almost £2000. C`est la vie!
Despite all of this the tours went well and we had some very positive feedback from the audiences “‘One of the best evenings at the club’, ‘Fantastic musicians’, ‘That is everything I love about blues, folk and ragtime, real feel good music’ and ‘Book them again”
In the circumstances it is this positive feedback that keeps you going and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone out there for their support. Otherwise the Ubangi Stomp festival in Spain was a great experience. It takes place in the Bali Hotel in Benidorm. The audience are pure 50s rock and roll fans all decked out in 50s clothes and hairstyles. We haven`t seen so much brylcream for a long time. Our thanks to Hector Guerrero for booking us and organising such a great event. You can check out more about the festival at http://www.myspace.com/ubangi_stomp
Bye for now
