Tour Blog 13: The David Hall, South Petherton

29 October, 2009 | Posted in: journal

The final day of this stint of gigs arrived and predictably my voice was suffering quite a bit.  Nice Mike Cosgrave ran to the chemists straight after breakfast to get Olbas Oil.  After dousing myself in it, we set off for South Petherton.  It felt wonderful to be finally heading South West, and the sun was shining as we arrived in Somerset.  I have fond memories of The David Hall having played a few gigs there with singer songwriter and good friend, Reg Meuross.  And it was great to see that the venue has undergone improvements since my last visit; it now has a new lift and a lighting rig.  That night we performed our set for the final time this month, to another friendly audience including a few old friends.  After the gig we packed up and set off for Devon and the complicated task of unloading and returning the van.

I am back in Exeter and coming down from the last 3 weeks. My throat and left ear are still suffering a bit, but it was all worth while for the amount of great experiences, and people that I have met over the past month.  A huge thankyou to everyone who came to our shows, to Scott our engineer, and to my wonderful band for their enthusiasm and talent.
