Earlier this month some of the band jumped into two minibuses at 4am and drove 700 miles to Diedesfeld, Neustadt an der Weinstra├če to spend some time with our good friends at Musikverien Diedesfeld Band (MVD Band). Our friends kindly put us up in their homes, we went wine tasting on the Friday at a local vineyard, attended and took part in one of their rehearsals ahead of performing with them at the closing night of the Winzergenossenschaft Weinbiet wine festival celebrations. On the Sunday morning we took part in the annual wine festival parade through the streets of Neustadt an der Weinstra├če followed by a tradition German dinner and celebrations in the town square.

As usual we had a fantastic time and are very grateful to our German friends who always look after us so well, we look forward to meeting up again in the very near future.
