About My Trip To Mexico City

it's amazing how many appointments you can squeeze into 48hrs. that's how short my stay was in mexico city last week. after driving all over this immensely huge city and checking out three possible venues for our next years meinl drum festival, we found the one that's most likely gonna be it. once it's ultimately confirmed, i will announce the place and date here right away.

later on we had a long meeting with the lovely people from our mexican distributor gonher about a possible line-up and other festival details. i have to say we got more covered that i would have thought of before. i even managed to check out some of musicstores downtown and a few sights mexico city has to offer before jumping on the plane back to germany. a total of 22hrs flight time for a 48hrs visit to mexico city. it's been totally worth it and i am looking forward to working with gonher on this project. stay tuned for more news.

i would like to thank victor, fernando, jorge, and juan-luis for their hospitality throughout my stay.

You guys are amazing and Congrats on having Mr. Coleman and Mr. Greb @ the M.D. Festival! They sound fantastic thanks to the wonderful cymbals...oh and the talent of course!
