On May 7th we got to support guitar legend Albert Lee and his band “Hogan’s Heroes” at the City Variety Hall in Leeds.
When we met Albert an exciting evening of interesting stories and great music started. Although having come for the master himself, the audience was also incredibly appreciative of our music, and we left the theatre late at night not only with inspiring personal encounters to remember but also with a much lighter merch box ;).
Albert and his bandmates said the kindest things about us, they discussed our “great guitar sound” and said they will help us whenever they can.

We also went to London a few days ago to meet Gregory Paul Martin, eldest son of Sir George Martin, the man who produced all of the Beatles’ albums and is often referred to as the “fifth” Beatle. From his looks to the way he talks Gregory certainly can’t deny his roots, however, he’s not only a famous son but a renowned actor, writer and producer in his own right. You bet we had a very interesting chat about hmmm … things … and this was probably not our last. Of course, we will let you know if anything should develop out of this 🙂
And last Saturday we had a lovely group of students from Indiana/USA over in Liverpool. Back home they are studying a course at university called “History Of The Beatles” – how cool is that? After a fun gig at the Cavern Club we all went out to show them the exciting city that is Liverpool and also bumped into them again on our trip to London three days later. A big shout-out to the lovely girls and boys and their brilliant professor from the Ball State University in Muncie, the very same that David Letterman is said to have once attended.
Exciting times ahead,
Mona & Lisa
