Update on Arrowrock

Post by Frank Marino » Sat Apr 01, 2006 10:25 am

It's with great regret that I must announce that we will not be able to go to the Arrowrock Festival after all. The reasons are purely financial.

The promoter and everyone else involved tried many things in order to make it work, but it had all come down to us getting some other gigs at the same time in England or thereabouts.

But the upcoming World Cup caused alot of promoters of the other shows to not want to take a chance at that particular time, so it ended up that we couldn't make up the difference, and we had to bow out.

We might have been able to make it work given more time, but the Festival needed a confirmation quite quickly and we couldn't say yes to that in good conscience, even if we believed we might have come up with the support later on.

On top of all of this, I couldn't even give this matter most of my attention right now, due to an unexpected family matter that needed all of my attention.

Sorry to all of you who thought we might have been there. Hopefully something else will happen.

Thanks,

Frank

Too bad. Well, maybe the renewed attention will help getting a tour off the ground in the near future. A full show in Paradiso, Amsterdam perhaps?

Thanks for the update and good luck on the home front.

:( Ofcourse it's a big disappointment that you cannot come, Frank but the reasons are very clear. So there's nothing more to say about it except: take care and hope too see you anyway in the near future. Maybe Arrow next year -it's a very nice festival- or in a tour of your own :?: Never know.... :roll:
Regards, Jaco

Well, I have relatives living in Canada so a bed is not a problem (I think 8) ). I don't know by heart where in Canada but the country isn't that big is it, and a nice walk after a gig is refreshing, so why not? :winky. I only have to find a way to cross the ocean. Mmm, maybe by using an umbrella on a good western wind - must be possible!

It seems to be a very good show.

Too bad Frank couldn't make it there this time.

"next year when Frank WILL be there": is this just a big wish or ... ?
I was also there this year, great weather this time (unlike 2 years ago) and great performances. Yourney was a pleasant surprise: much heavier (= more guitar) then what I knew from them.
If there are any plans for Frank to come to the next edition, I would buy the tickets right now! :headbanger
