Surreal moments in the Northwest – 7/12 – B Sharp Coffee House, Tacoma

And here comes the last day of the tour of the Northwest. After Portland, Arlington and Seattle, we’re now off to Tacoma. Where we will play the B Sharp Coffee House. With me behind the wheel on the way there, in full sunshine, equipped with nothing but good moods and a bag of sunflower seeds, Prairie and I are following the Interstate 5. Down to Tacoma. Please join us for this last evening of musical madness.

Before the show

We were on time. Very much on time, that is. So, we had some hours to spend. And we did! We spent some hours. First off, we unloaded The Van, set up our gear and then went to a wonderful pizza place (with a more than marvelous choice of beers), close to the venue. Time for some pictures, I reckon. Oh well, here goes.

The venue

What a wonderful an beautiful place this B Sharp Coffee house is! With a great selection of beers, a lovely entrance and a more than amazing gateway to the toilets! Something you only see once every so many times. Last time I was this amazed, I was in London, playing with Ike Willis and ZAPPATiKA in the club: Under The Bridge. This is a totally different entourage, but oh my … how wonderful. Check it out.

The Aftermath

After the show, we had another great time. People who came to see us were so grateful and so excited. It was humbling. The pleasure was all ours. Thanks to everybody who came to see us on our last concert of this tour. It was absolutely my honor to be part of this historical venture. Sharing the stage with Ike Willis, Prairie Prince, Kevin Crosby and Rupert Kettle for four days, has been simply amazing! Thank you, all! It was superb!

Here’s some after show pictures for you to enjoy (and for me to remember). What a trip it has been!!
