We go to Germany this week. I am looking forward to a great trip it and it's my first with them so I certainly am looking forward to getting to know the band better. Thanks to all who have sorted to the letter what appears to be a well organised trip. Can't wait to get there. I'd like to thank the band greatly for all the hard work in preparing for the concerts. There are some 30+ pieces going with us. Bearing in mind I've only been here a month now we have put some phenominal preparation in for the enjoyment of the locals there. I have witnessed a very professional and committed approach and it has done wonders to gel our new partnership. I wonder if we can expect the same interest as Dyke's Aussie trip?? I doubt it, however our commitment shall be just as intense. See you there guys!
