We were booked to play at a wedding… but all the national weather forecasts were warning of a major storm system heading our way.
We arrived at the venue and we were repeatedly assured that the storm was going to miss this venue… you’ll be fine …they said.
So we set up for the Champagne Set beside a very pretty lake… but then it rained.
We only managed 5 songs. We were wet, our gear was wet, our lighting rigs and monitors were so wet they were unsafe to use. Champagne and canapes were abandonded.
The storms that swept across France, and indeed Europe, caused flooding and destruction and even took lives. PLEASE… take note of the weather forecast and please have a plan B.
