The university town of Augsburg proved to be a great place for youthful inspiration. Of the 10 acts, three of them were full bands with at least 5 musicians, who worked up some very groovy, rocking, loungey interpretations that thrilled the crowd.
MILESTONE: For the first time at a SAME OLD SONG event, I asked some of the acts (beginning with the first performance by the funk band Soul’d) to REPEAT their performance. This happened three times in the evening, to the delight of the audience.
