Big huge 5 hour drive tomorrow, all the way down South as The Rapparees edge ever closer to a day off in Munich, scene of their famous karaoke battle of 2013 when Kevin’s passionate delivery of Paul Simon’s ‘You can call me Al’ electrified the whole of Bavaria and won the day….#TrueStory
2 days off in Cologne now after 3 lovely shows. Cathedral then beer. #plan
The Rapparees are staying in a hotel attached to a zoo. The Rapparees like zoos. Oh aye….
Nearly time to board the bus (boat?) to Dublin to hit Germany for a few weeks of shows. We’ll miss that rain. Honestly…
In other news…we might be announcing a rather exciting festive show in Belfast very soon. Watch this space…..
Its nearly time for The Rapparees’ yearly tour of Germany and surrounding countries. This means several things. Kev wearing tracksuit bottoms with black loafers, Joe handing over £200 to O2 for internet data and Conor trying to grow a beard that will never be as nice or as full as Kev’s. On the plus side, it’ll be our 1st time playing in Liechtenstein! Yup!
Acting the tourists in lovely Munich. Had to recreate the drunken YMCA pose at a lovely big fountain originally taken two years ago but Dermot Sheedy! Very cool….not…
We’re off to Selb in Germany tomorrow for Festival Mediaval with a bunch of other nice bands from all over the world. The lovely folks at the festival have hired us our very own Ford Mondeo estate (or similar) which big Josie the 30 year old is going to pilot all the way from Munich so that the rest of us can drink beer. Thanks Joe, we love and appreciate you xx
We are aware of rumours circulating that we have been nominated for the dreaded Ice Bucket Challenge by the Idyllic Dolls and are seeking specialist legal advice/pricing flights home for Gerry with regards the matter. Watch this space….
