January 2012 “Switzerland Tour” Mountains Or Hills?

Student Grant here again, brining some more adventures from Narnia. Let’s begin.

Waking up at 7:30Am I had left the guys at Bills’ place, heading down to Hasliberg for the 3rd gig, planning to meet them there later. This place was great, by far the most amazing place we’ve seen in Switzerland so far, surrounded my huge mountains, snow and magic. At this point, we were truly in Narnia.

The snow around us was deeper then me! Yet the people, were going about their lives like it was nothing! After the guys arrived and we had some time to kill, so they began jamming on the couch, trying out some new songs, and messing around. I took this chance to pull out the camera and record them, the result was a pretty amazing video.

After an hour of recording we were given the chance to try the second national dish of Switzerland, “Raclette” melted cheese on just about anything. A huge thanks to Margo for cooking us a great meal and letting us take over her couch for the video!

An hour or two later we headed off to the sound check, when we arrived we noticed that the sound was setup by two super talented 16 and 17 year olds. Someone had also put a huge poster with the lyrics to Wagon-wheel up next to the stage so at the end the whole school could join in! An hour of setting up later, the gig began, sending the students into a frenzy, loving every song that was played and finally ending the night with the whole school singing “Wagon-wheel” together, a teacher even joining the guys on stage with a mandolin, What an amazing night!

As I’ve spoilt you with a video, You’ll get a drawing tomorrow!
