Oh dear, it seems that I have left it far too long to post a new message again!
Really looking forward to our Christmas shows in Germany in December (10th to 13th) and to that end I have spent the last couple of months producing a Christmas EP. There are four new original songs and a simple version of Silent Night possibly my favourite Christmas Carol. The songs have been written for a couple of years and have had no home as such, so I decided to finish recording them myself with my friend Pietro Lacirignola. I’m really happy with the result and look forward to hearing your comments about them. It was fun and really got me in the Christmas spirit!
As I was recording them, my wife and I came up with the idea of doing a charity benefit concert for a recreational center for mentally and physically challenged children and their families in the area of Belgium that I live. Check them out www.balanske.be. It is a one of a kind organization in Europe I believe and a very worthy charity, they rely totally on donations. I decided to make the EP available at our Christmas concerts for a donation to the Balanske, this will help us give as much money to them as possible from the concert.
The concert is on the 17th of January 2016 at Het Depot in Leuven, Belgium.
The show will feature myself and the band, (Mads, Frank, Gunnar and Zsolt) and we’ll have some special guests that will be announced nearer the time.
The Christmas EP is called ‘Get Ready For Christmas’ and will also be available on all the digital platforms soon. We will be playing two songs from the EP at our Christmas concerts, always exciting to play new songs, plus some other Christmas specials so we look forward to seeing you at one of the concerts.
In the meantime be safe, it’s crazy out there but keep on rockin’!!
