2012 Swiss Winter and Summer Tours
The Gigs (Feb/March):
Dixie Jazz Club
Hotel Belle Epoque
The Gigs (July/August):
Amphi Blues and Jazz Festival
Swing in the Wind Festival
The Belle Epoque is a unique hotel where we've had a lot of good times. This year, Kurt Zimmerli's beautiful photos really captured the atmosphere.
A close second goes to the Holiday Inn Express, where Orest put us up in Sempach. Laugh if you will, but this modern hotel at a motorway rest stop had every amenity you could wish, a splendid breakfast and a view of the Alps.
The Lady of the Belle Epoque
Back on the Swiss road in winter...
Ah, life on the road...Champagne-soaked parties, hot chicks and fast cars. Well, fast cars anyway. This time around, I decided to take pix of some of the most glamorous happenings on a typical European tour.
Days on the road...
...and finally playing.
The Florida gator made his first trip to Europe, and liked it so much, he stayed!
...and again in summer
The tour started with a great show for our Music Friends at a lovely lakeside hotel.
Once again, hiking in the Alps
The Florida gator has settled in nicely - he doesn't seem to mind the cold at all!
The Swing in the Wind Festival in Estavayer was lots of fun (what's a little rain?) and a beautiful way to wrap up the tour.
