Enjoying a superb venue and excellent German efficiency here in Bad Kissingen for the German Nationals. It has been a great experience so far with a full hall for all bands and awesome support from other local bands. The rivalry here is the friendliest I have experienced at a contest. Different to the UK, bands perform twice here - a set work, Blackout by Thomas Doss (one of the adjudicators too) took place yesterday with own choice coming up today. Gala concert tonight from Brighouse to look forward to as well. I have been very fortunate since moving here 18 months ago to find such a great band and am looking forward to playing On Alderley Edge in a few hours time.
