Day 13 – 5th gig – Blue Note, Nove Mesto Nad Vahom, Slovakia

We spent the first part of the day driving to Slovakia…

Before heading to the gig venue we had time to stop by the hotel.  The good news was that we were going to be spending the night in a palace (the ‘Thermia Palace’ to be precise)…

… the bad news was that there had been a mix-up and they’d been expecting us the previous night!  After some discussion at the front desk it was decided that our very capable promoter would be able to solve the issue, and so we left for the gig…

We made our way to the venue where we were met by the promoter who, sure enough, fixed the hotel booking issue with a simple phone call.  We were playing in a very nice Jazz club, The Blue Note, and after a customary espresso it was time to set up the stage and soundcheck…

The gig was great – great audience and a good sound on stage.  After the show we checked into the hotel and I rushed up to my room to tune-in to Cool 102 FM, just in time to hear The Cheap Seats show start, which tonight was being co-hosted by my wonderful girlfriend Katie and her business partner Jay.  I enjoyed a relaxing couple of hours in the luxury of my 5 star room, eating a complimentary sweet selection while listening to the show… not a bad job really, is it?
