Back from Switzerland!

February 15, 2011

Hey! this is the last blog update I will be doing, the rest will be done by Shaggy and Derek, so with that. Lets begin.

The last gig of Switzerland was to be played at the same place as the first! “The Legends pub” as usual once the guys started playing the place was full, this made for a great atmosphere for everyone. I’ve never seen such a small place buzzing with so many people. after the gig the owner Bill Weir took us for a meal, it was great! By about 2-3AM we headed back to the apartment that Bill was letting us use, knowing we had to be up at 6.00AM we went to sleep, Derek opted for the kitchen floor! not too sure why.
When morning came we went out for a final “Goodbye coffee” with Bill. after that we walked to the station, we got our tickets and climed aboard the train, about 2 hours into our journey a man told us we where on the wrong train! but was kind enough to keep us on as it was going to the same stops. Finaly! we had made it to the airport and were heading to security, knowing our luck we where stoped and had one of our bags checked. what did he find? “A tamborine, two pairs of hotel slippers, a clipboard, and a can of deodorant.” He took our deodorant… So with that done we finaly made to the plane for two hour ride, How fun.
This was a good chance to look back on all of the fun we had in Switzerland, and how muh I’ll miss it.
From the guys writing a new song on the train, to Derek sleeping on the kitchen floor. It was Great, even with our drunken “Sound-Guy” Rich it was a trip I will never forget. “Its not a train.” -Derek Allen, Jason Vare.

Day 2-3 in Switzerland!

February 12, 2011

Day 2: on day two we where to head down to Zurich, after a fairly long drive with a guitar on my lap we had made it and started unloading the equipment from the car and began setting up in “The Oliver Twist pub” the crowd was great! Very eager to buy CDs and where loving the music. As the gig came to an end the guys signed some CDs for some buyers. Perfect night! All that was left was the drive back, poor Derek, we made him hold his guitar up front! he was practicaly attached to it! after we made it back to the hotel, we had some well deserved sleep.

Day 3:Engelberg! Yep, that’s where we where heading on day 3 the guys where to preform at the Dream Life bar Twice! So we had the chance to stay fir more than one day! The gig went great! A film crew came by after they had seen a “we steal flyers” poster, he was recoding for a ten year aniversary of the music festival! Even met a fan that had heard shag & derek on the radio! In all It was a pretty amazing night! Hoping for a crowd like that again!


Day one in switzerland.

February 10, 2011

Hey! I’m Grant and I’ve been acting as a diary-man Meaning I’ve had the chance to record all that the guys do, and pass it on to you guys!

Day one in Switzerland.

After a 3 hour train ride we had finaly made it and even if the last ride inspired the guys to write a new song! I’m not looking forward to the next! Once we got settled, we met up with “Bill” the owner of “The Legends” what a guy! The gig went very well and we sold a few CDs (great sucsess!)
After we where done and fed we headed down to Bill’s appartment to get some well deserved rest! The guys have been working very hard on the 100 gigs in 100 days! So show them some love!

Lyrics “ANOTHER SONG”

WHAT DO YOU WANT , WHAT DO YOU SEE
WHAT DO YOU BUY AND WHY IS IT NOT FREE
WHO DO YOU HIDE AND WHO DO YOU SEEK
WHY ARE WE SO STRONG AND THEN WERE SO WEEK

ANOTHER SONG BY A MAN YOULL NEVER KNOW
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT PLACES YOULL NEVER GO
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT DREAMS YOULL NEVER DREAM
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT WASTING YOUR LIFE BY THE STREAN

BUT IL HOLD YOU KNOW, LIKE I HELD YOU THEN
ALL THOSE NIGHTS AGO
BUT IL HOLD YOU NOW, LIKE I HELD YOU THEN
ALL THOS NIGHTS AGO

WHO DO YOU KNWO AND WHERE WILL THEY BE
WHO DO YOU LOVE AND WHY IS IT NOT ME
WHERE DO YOU STAND, WHERE HAVE YOU STOOD
WHO WOULD YOU ASK , ASK IF YOU COULD

ANOTHER SONG BY A MAN YOULL NEVER KNOW
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT PLACES YOULL NEVER GO
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT DREAMS YOULL NEVER DREAM
ANOTHER SONG ABOUT WASTING YOUR LIFE BY THE STREAN

BUT IL HOLD YOU KNOW, LIKE I HELD YOU THEN
ALL THOSE NIGHTS AGO
BUT IL HOLD YOU NOW, LIKE I HELD YOU THEN
ALL THOS NIGHTS AGO
