Over in Hannover there is a three-weeklong festival called the Maschsee-Fest. Music from noon to 10 p.m., good food and drinks every day. It is a free for all festival that is quite an institution for decades. Several professional stages are built around the lake Maschsee which is located in the heart of Hannover. Very enjoyable event for the local families and many tourists. It is not easy to land a gig there. And we were very fortunate to be the band to close the event at one of the nicests location there. A stage at the lake surrounded by a romantic little forest. The place has an estimated capacity for ca. 600 persons. Although the weather was quite o.k. during the last few weeks today it rained cats and dogs. We got so wet when loading our van it was ridiculous. Honestly we did not expect many people to be there. We were lucky. As soon as we arrived the rain stopped and a couple of people entered the location. Some of them in Pettycoats and ready to dance. In the end my Evil Elvizz outfit had quite a good time with an audience of about 120 people. Anyway we put up the complete show with pyrotechnics and the whole enchilada that we usually drum up. Still I am a bit disappointed because we had so big expectations towards this prestigious gig. Hopefully the vew that came will spread the word about my band. The organizer gave us compliments. Hope he will book us again... Tomorrow after work I will have to clean all the dirt from my equipment. Around the stage it was as muddy as Woodstock. Our poor singer ruined two jewelled jumpsuites... Just trying to calm down a bit. Wake-up time will be in 5 hours ... good night , friends. AAAh: Remember me to book at least one roadie next time. My back is aching although we travelled with light luggage (i.e. no fullstacks). I am getting old.
