Blimey. I wasn’t expecting that….

In the past few weeks our trusty tour van Princess Leia has taken us all over the bloomin’ place…..we’ve played Nashville, Knoxville, Mobile, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Madison, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Columbus, Buffalo and Pittsburgh.

As some of you may have already seen on my FB page, I did fall madly in love with Madison, Indiana.

I mean, it’s so stinkin’ cute.

Out of all the above listed places, I did fall unexpectedly in love with another city – I’ll reveal which one very soon 🙂

Before that though, I want to tell you about one of the most incredible venues I’ve ever played.

On the way to this particular place, Doug & Telisha told me it was their favourite venue in the whole world.

That’s quite a statement.

After telling me this they then refused to tell me anything else because they wanted it to be a surprise (meeeaaannn!).

We pulled into the driveway of a very Ann Arbor-looking house.  Cute and full of character.  According to our sat nav we had indeed arrived at our final destination.

I was intrigued.

My first thought was that this must be a house concert series.

We went inside the house, down a few very old looking wooden stairs into the basement….and this is what greeted us:

Johnny’s Speakeasy.

I know, it’s amazing.  My photos don’t do it justice at all.

You’d think as this was in such an unusual location that no-one would know about it – but the place was packed and everyone was so attentive.

A musician’s dream venue ❤

They even made a documentary about the place a few years ago:

Definitely NOT what I was expecting!!

What an awesome surprise.  ❤
