TJO & Trumpet High Notes in Geneva, Switzerland!
We did a 4 hour drive from Lyon, France to Geneva, Switzerland to play for the 4th of July celebration that was being thrown at the American Consulate!
The weather was a bit warm (but nothing like Texas) and we were greeted by friendly delegates from all over the world!
The band hadn't played since Friday (6/26/09) before we had left for Europe, but played well! The Delegates and invited guests were very receptive and enjoyed the show!
After leaving the stage, we literally had to jump back on the bus and head to the Boujulais Wine & Jazz Festival where Band of the West opened for us! This was a great band from Lyon, France that played very well together!
This was great to be able to hang out with Band of the West after the performances... music is amazing!
After the show, we headed back to our room in Lyon at the Hotel Ibis... where a cold shower and sleep was much needed. We're to leave at 8:15 the next morning to go to Montreux, Switzerland! The part of the trip I've been really looking forward to!
