Goodbye, England!

Dear Friends,
The Gentlemen depart tomorrow morning for the Festival de Jazz de Almodovar in Almodovar, Portugal.  Allow us to share a few more photos with you from our time in England.  But, first a word for the British peoples…

Dear British peoples: You have welcomed The Gentlemen with open arms, open ears, and seasoned livers.  For this we shall be eternally grateful.  We intend to repay your kindness and good cheer with repeated visits to your fine land.  A special thank you to everyone who put on TMGB shows, housed us, bought us drinks, and showed us a fine time.  You know who you are!  Thanks!

And now, more photos…

Special thanks to Sidney Bailey’s No Good Punchin’ Clowns (an incarnation of Blue Demon) for bringing the good stuff (great tunes, well-dressed ladies, and hair-product tips) to the show.  I loves you boys.

Farewell, England!  We’ll miss you.

Yours most graciously,
