Ou sont les Nuages? Le MaryJohn Pub, Lamalou-Les-Bains Views: 45099

The day started cloudy again, when we made the visit to the cafe over the road from Le MaryJohn, which has become a daily routine for this section of the tour, it was quite overcast, but still didn't feel like rain, so I was optimistic.

But midway through the afternoon the sun poked it's head through the occasional gap in the clouds, then by 6 oclock the skies were blue, and they stayed that way till they became stary later on ...

Le MaryJohn was were I recorded the "Live In France" CD last september so I had really been looking forward to this one, as with last year the gig was '√Ę le terrace'. One reason to be grateful for the departure of Les Nuages!.

Got set up by 6 o'clock with a little more time to pay attention to the sound. Was fed pitza from avery nice restaurant across the road, then onstage at 8:30 pm. This gig started and finished a little earlier than is typical for the French gigs, due to noise limitations at night. A good crowd had already arrived though and it built nicely as my set progressed. I had got a very nice sound and was able to play with more subtlety than the night before. Received a good response from a mostly listening and occasional dancing audience!

Second set started around ten and as usual featured the electric guitar. Got some video of both sets to process later...

All in all a successful return visit, and quite abit of interest in the CD, particularly from those featured on the cover :-)

Tonight is the Bar des sports out in Graissassec, and small mining village nearby. There were a few local musicians at Le MaryJohn and there is some talk of a jam, with perhaps bass and drums in the later part of the second half. Should be fun if it comes off.
