WOW, what an amazing start to the New Zealand tour!
The Mussel Inn in Takaka must be one of the most amazing places for any musician to play! Jane and Andrew, the hosts, are incredible! So much so, that in addition to providing an amazing venue, fair pay and delicious food, they even vacate their own home (and move into a small cottage) when musicians are in town to offer comfortable, cozy accommodation for them! The evening could not have played out any better — the place was packed, many people were dancing to our music and were even asking for an encore! It was SOOO much fun!!
Here a few pictures of the gig and venue!
