Concert Tour and Holiday, Plajta d’Aro, Spain
The band had an excellent week in Spain between Saturday 20th and 27th July, where they were based at the Hotel Els Pins in the busy Spanish resort of Plajta d’Aro.
The band flew from Liverpool with the luxury of only hand luggage as cases and instruments had all been taken by van driven by Peter and Bernard. They were sitting by the pool when we arrived! With the beach literally on the doorstep and a pool at the hotel, much of the week was spent enjoying the beach and the water. (See the band’s Facebook page).
The holiday included a visit to the theme park, PortAdventura and to the Blanes Firework Festival. In the past we have seen the fireworks from the sea, on a boat trip from Tossa de Mar. This year we joined the thousands on the beach to watch, and the fireworks were spectacular.
The band also performed three concerts during the week under the baton of James Garlick. The evening concerts saw the band visiting Tossa de Mar, Lloret de Mar and Platja d’Aro where they attracted good audiences. Well done to Jason, Neil, Sam, Seth and Julian for their solo pieces.
Good company, good music, good holiday!
