SKAMBOMAMBO Summer skank tour Day 2

Day 2
Date 27.07.2012

Asleep or awake in the van, the Skambobus goes through Germany, Holland, Belgium all the way to Calais. All the guys have their preferred sleeping and snoring sk2 two-triple tone rhythms.The SKAMBObus has comfortable seats but all of us are dreaming of the comfy beds they slept in only last night.

The Drivers Misiek and Daniel and Navigator Don Mario stop for a well deserved and needed  coffee break.

 And so on from one phase to another, sweet dreams to grim reality.

 The sun rises on the SKAMBObus somewhere in Belgium.

Finally the Skambobus lands in Calais and it's time to take the ferry to the white, white hills of Dover

Below it.s obvious that on the right, one can see the guys who slept most of the way and to the left, Daniel who had the last shift as a driver on the right. Funny thing is SKAMBOMAMBO gained a full hour thanks to time difference between CET time and GMT mean time.

 This was Misiek's first time ever to the UK and he could hardly wait!

Skambomambo is in Dover at around 13.30 and then a 3 hour drive to London. It is time for the London Olympics and there is a lot of traffic, but the Skambomambo arrives at 17:00. No sleep, no shower. Time to gig all over again. Our host, manager in London is the best guy in the world. Meet Adee, in the photo on the left with Don Mario.

We don't have any photos of our first gig in London this time. Unfortunately we had run out of battery power. It was a long night with Skambomambo coming up as the second band, with the Live Vice, Candy Rose and Something Simple.

The band finally gets some sleep.
