This venue was booked by our old time friend Kristin..
most days this is an organic restaurant serving high-end food in a very comfortable manner. But tonight it’s a music venue as well with 50 comfortable seats facing a small stage
We sound check with two nice guys both named Dave .. then have a bite to eat before showtime. Great wholesome healthy food ..tomato salad… another kind of salad that I don’t know and roast beef… Everything tasted great!
One of the interesting things that Kristin does is she has a DJ playing his collection of old country disks from the 50s 60s and 70s .. his stage name is uncle Bop.. he’s advertised on all the posters and in the long run I think it’s going to be a big help to the shows as he has good taste and it’s fun listening those records
We use the audience speakers as our monitors today and somehow it worked great and I think made more part of one thing.. The sound was rich and good
The audience was extremely welcoming and we had a connection from start to finish Goran was brilliant and the audience let him know it.
Here are some of Goran’s favorites of the night..New York In Between.. Track 224 and Sweet Dream Woman.. This last was a hit I wrote for Waylon Jennings
I thought these were very special… but I would add Block Out The Sirens Of This Lonely World and the song for Joan ..Joan Joan Joan..
the audiences have loved the songs inspired by Joan…Who is arriving in Oslo in a few days!!! Yeah!!
The ending was very special tonight. We played a beautiful Angel Of The Morning .. Goran was so soulful!! then Wild Thing rocked in such a cool soft but powerful way ..then we did Fuck All The Perfect People and everyone sang the chorus loud and clear and it was like we were in a cathedral by songs end
We ended our Show with a beautiful, beautiful version of Refugee Children again with the audience totally singing along
This was a very special night again wonderful to see my old friend Kristin thanks so
