UK Tour a wrap!

What a roller coaster that was! The whole band caught some kind of respiratory infection, starting on the 8th day we were there. Hitman lost his voice completely on two separate occassions, but the first time we were able to do a completely instrumental gig which went over incredibly well. The second time, our good friend Shufflepack filled in at the sold out Tring Blues Bar gig, with Hitman sitting in on guitar for the evening. Plus, the entire band ended up sitting in all night, making it the ShuffleMan band (or maybe the HitPack, or some other hybrid name).

So many amazing things happened during the tour - the MC for Livestock, an archeologist, who shut down his dig for the day specifically because we were playing (!), the lovely lady who unknowingly found us playing at Cathedral Square (first time we ever played in a graveyard!) and came up afterwards, saying she had followed us for years and we turned her "crap day" around, people showing up at gigs wearing tee shirts from five tours ago - or even longer! Despite the stress of illness, it was an incredible tour filled with love and support.
