Bamberg, wir lieben dich!

Einen wunderbaren Festivalabschluss für diesen Sommer hat das Musikhaus Thomann uns gestern bereitet, indem es uns zum Sieger seines Bandwettbewerbs gekürt und uns mit tollen Preisen überhäuft hat. So war uns gestern ein wunderbares Konzert beim Blues & Jazzfestival Bamberg vergönnt inkl. abschließender Übernachtung im Super-Edel-Deluxe-Hotel und allerlei Thomann-Goodies für die Band. Allerherzlichsten Dank auch an das tolle Bamberger Publikum für die grandiose Stimmung und die tolle Resonanz! Hier noch ein kleiner Bericht dazu.

Meine Lieben,
