January 2012 “Switzerland Tour” It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

February 1, 2012

Hey! I’m back again, with more adventures from Narnia for you all to enjoy!

So after waking up and enjoying a few coffees we began getting ready for the first of the gigs.
The gig was played at Bill’s bar, the “Legends”. An hour and a coffee later Deg had re-stringed and tuned the guitar, ready for the gig, all hard work that I managed to set back when I tripped over the guitar and destroyed the tuner. Some time later me and Derek left to meet Shaggy at the Legends, lucky for us, it was snowing outside, making everything look beautiful, more like Narnia than ever. With our journey underway and oversized umbrella in hand, we noticed Margo drive by in the Sad-car, I’ve never been so relived in my life! “Finally we can get out of the cold.” I was shot down as she got out of the car and announced she was walking with us.
We made it to bills, with Derek sporting a snow filled beard and me, frozen to the core.
Soon after we warmed up and had a coffee the guys got the show on the road, playing two forty minuet sets for the people of Narnia.

We took a taxi back to bills pad and once again, pillaged his coffee supply before heading to bed.

I’ll leave you with a drawing by Derek, enjoy.

January 2012 “Switzerland Tour” Narnia here we come!

January 30, 2012

Hello, my name is Grant and for the next two weeks I’ll be updating the blog for the guys!
So, with that out of the way, let’s begin.

As always, we met at Shaggys place with all of our bags and prepared for the journey to the airport. “Holy Cow Batman” Shaggy is awake!? There’s a first time for anything I suppose.
Soon after we had made it to the airport and took care of the boring stuff, we got to rest, sharing a coffee at the same place we had stopped at two years ago!

After a long rest we finished up and noticed the plane was boarding! How did we miss that!? Arriving at our gate and heading straight out to the plane, we began to see Narnia in our sights!
One hour and 40 minutes later we had arrived in Geneva, feeling very, very glad to be back on the ground, only to remember that we now had a 3 hour train ride, oh joy. However, this train was special, it had an “upstairs”; the excitement of the train swaying ever so slightly to the left and right only lasted for the first 5 minuets of the journey. The rest of the trip consisted of Shaggy composing a song and drawing a pretty picture, like total rock stars, right? FINALLY! We made to to Luzern and met up with our old friend Margo Cummings, the wonderful lady that has helped set up our gig at the Ecole d’Humanit√©. She was right there, to pick us up from the train station in the infamous “sad-car” to take us to Bill Weir, the one and only. He’s kind enough to let us use his amazing place and let us pillage his food and coffee supply!
Tomorrow, we’ll be playing a gig at Bill’s bar, “Legends”; tune in again to see how it turns out.

Bead, AWAAAAY!!
