Boo! Student Grant here again, continuing from the last lately posted blog.
After we had once again been on the car-train we began the drive to “Grindwald” I’m unsure why, but we seem to be attracted to mountain gigs… 2 hours later we had finally arrived. exhausted from the long drive, we all headed to our rooms, getting the tiny bit of rest we could squeese in before the soundcheck. Grindwald was a stunning place, no matter where you looked you would see an amazing mountian, towering over you, and skiers, lots of skiers.
when we arrived at the Spinners Bar we were exitedly greeted by Jens, the owner of the place. Jens took us to the resturaunt for a meal and a chat before the guys had to to preform. When we arived at the table we were informed it was going to be a first for most of us, osterige. To our suprise, it was very good, this was followed by an amazing lemon sorbet and cake.
They sure know how to treat a band here in Switzerland.
After the meal and the final touch ups on the sound system, the guys were in action! sending the crowd wild almost instantly, playing 3 sets of 40 minuets, and even being asked to play “No Secret” while the crowd sang along! towards the end of the gig the guys were asked to re-play “One of us” 3 times, and as you’d expect they did, inviting Jens to join them on the stage for the chorus of the song.
After a few Goodbye photos, we were on our way, heading back to the hotel for a touch of sleep before the final leg of of our mountain adventures.
Once again I’ll leave you with something, this time some footage of the Ecole all joining in with the guys singing “wagon wheel”
