UK Tour Wrap Up

Posted by kyle james on Thursday, January 24, 2008

Well, I'm back in the good ol' US of A and it feels a little strange...probably due to the fact that I'm still 7 hours behind and I didn't sleep for a near 48 hour travel period. But I'm doing my best to take some deep breaths and reflect on a great tour. Turns out that Germany is the easiest country to get through customs by the way...they didn't even look at me, just stamped me on through. Hilarious.

All in all we had a pretty amazing run, played some really great shows and met some amazing people! I've said it before, but the Knox's hospitality really made things possible for us. I hardly had to spend any money on food/travel/lodgings! And they wouldn't stop buying me drinks!! We crammed in a ton of experience into the last couple weeks and the world feels just a little bit closer.

I'd also like to extend special thanks to Will, who put in tons of time and stress into making this a success, Steve for doing everything we didn't want to, Jeni for holding down the bottom, Tim(aka The General) for keeping us honest, Christen, for stirring the pot, the Yusef family, for all their generosity, Gorgeous George, for being the only mad classical gypsy composer i've known, the Alexs in Manchester for some serious guitar hero/techno banjo craziness, the ginger kids in Oxford for fulfilling all of my stereotypes about english college guys, Matten and his merry men in Nottingham for keeping the gun crime down, Jane in Bristol for changing my mind about flutes sucking, The Carpenter's Arms for their tolerance, The crazy ladies of Cambridge and anyone who put up with us, bought us drinks, fought off the munters, came to a show or just had a smirt!

Cheers everyone! See you next time!

Thats awesome!! What kind of group did you play with on the tour? I imagine that has got to be an awesome experience. How did you get the Europe gig?

Reckon getting through customs in Germany easy has more to do with having a name like "Hauser" than it does anything else?
