Organizer Peter B asked me if any Forumers are interested in the Straydog Party 2018. (First weekend in June 1,2,3)
I'll be there! Anyone?
Will share more about the venue etc.

You very welcome.
Peter made an event page on FB.

"SDP 2018 will take place at a historical place in the north of The Netherlands. In the town of Leeuwarden there's a very old prison building, called The Blokhuispoort.
We, Straydogs, can't wait to get in there to have us a party, while in the past there have been many poor bastards who couldn't wait to get out of that fucking building.
During our three days stay there, we will sleep in their cells. Nowadays it's a little more comfortable to stay there. The prison has been metamorphosed to a hostel.

The building is on the edge of the old center of Leeuwarden, so a great location near canals, bars and restaurants.
We will have plenty of food and drinks inside the prison walls, but you are allowed to make an escape whenever you want to.
Only two streets away is the in the year of 1912 established Café De Ossekop. Also very close, you can get your pint of Guinness in the Irish pub called Paddy O'Ryan.

It goes without saying that there will plenty of music going on, played by whoever feels like it. On top of that, on Saturday evening,
Tom Waits tribute band Uncle Vernon will play a short gig. This is the band I put together four years ago and played at the Straydog Party in Oudewater.
So next year we will celebrate our five years existance.

Costs for the three days stay with everything included, will be around € 250,-. Once I know how many people will be attending, I can be more specific about the price.

So step right up!"

This sounds absolutely wonderful.
Quite pricey, though! :?

Won't be feasible I think...

There's a very good chance I'll have to play a private concert with our coverband somewhere in Germany ...
It will be around mid June, so there'll be some heavy rehearsing beforehand...

not that I'm aware of, it's a band that usually does one gig per year, new year's eve, very private... this Germany thing would be for some guy's birthday...

We mainly do Pink Floyd, some Sting and Springsteen, Metheny, etc... It's fun...

Confession: I'm a bit scared of Straydogs parties.
