Amazing time at Old Cars, Rocking People Festival in Belgium ๐Ÿ™‚

OOPS…we’ve slept in for breakfast by 1/2-hour!

No problem, tho’…we’re welcomed by an incredible spread of food and we have a lovely breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚

The festival doesn’t  open ’til 1pm, so there’s a few ours to get some work done. I create a new landing page for the website and some new Facebook banners for upcoming gigs. It;s kinda cool to be able to have video banners on Facebook pages now…but they only seem to work on desktop ๐Ÿ™

We get to the festival site around 2pm and are given food, vouchers, drinks tokens and more than enough hospitality to get us through the day, let alone the next few hours.

The weather’s kinda patchy ad the first live music is from Belgian rockabillys the Swampboys. They play he outdoor stage and we’re given the choice of playing in the  big tent or outside….we reckon inside is the best bet and it’s a good choice!

The sound guys are great and the sound, by all accounts, is awesome! I have an absolute blast then spend some time at merch before going backstage to clear up.

We have more food, beer and then head outside to watch USA band the Screamin’ Rebel Angels…thankfully the rain’s off for their outdoor stage set. 

Backstage, we take care of business then say cheerio and head back to the hotel. Knackered. Magic day out ๐Ÿ™‚

Screamin’ Rebel Angels

Thursday 15 June 2017

Will and I have a great morning at Glengoyne and sample a little more than the angels’ share ๐Ÿ˜‰

A RUSH to get out the door to meet Catriona and Will and Glengoyne.

I’d promised Will at Christmas that we’d go on a distillery tour at Glengoyne and we finally sorted a date. 

While we’re on the tour Catriona and Margaret go to a place nearby for coffee and cake. Meantime, Will and I enjoy the tour and enjoy a few drams. i also use the visit as a chance to catch up with the marketing folks who are arranging things for the media/industry album launch event and a few other wee partnership projects over the next few months.

Margaret and Catriona pick up up when we’re done and we go to a garden centre place near Killearn for lunch. Very nice.

Back home we chat over a coffee or two then Catriona and Will head off and I get on with some work before making dinner.
