Grand Tour, Summer Solstice Version

Post by Rose Springvale »

Herr Baron, (Klaus Wulfenbach Outlander) who runs the Consulate of Europa Wulfenbach in NFS, and Vice Consul, Annechen Lowey, have agreed to chair the next Grand Tour which takes place on June 20 and 21st, in conjunction with the summer solstice. CDS has the honor of leading off the festivities again, beginning with a Taste of Oktoberfest in the Platz. The entertainment will be provided by new CDS citizen zaphod Enoch, and his 11 piece tryolean band (more info below!) Thanks to Sonja Strom for the contact! The concert begins at 11:30 am. We will use this opportunity to get the momentum going for our 5th birthday celebration.

The Grand Tour committee has decided to use this opportunity to raise funds for Relay for Life, but the primary focus remains celebrating the creativity and spirit of Second Life. This committee is the most organized yet, and I expect traffic numbers will be high.

We are not planning for two events in CDS this time. If someone wants to step forward and host one in the roman sims, let me know and I'll help find time in the schedule.

For those intereseted, Al Andalus will have an event late Saturday night, featuring Joaquin Gustav and spanish/arab music. Rumor has it that Genie costumes are in order.

The Tiroler Eck Show Band.

The Tiroler Eck Show Band (short TESB) is performing a live music show with playback music. The genre of the music played is mostly a mixture between bavarian and austrian schlager and traditional music. During the show everybody on stage is live present. The Band is not using any kinda bots as musician or show (stage) fill up for missing members at day of performing. The band consists of:

- FrankyTirol Barbrossa (mal) Bandleader, acting vocal, fiddle, trumpet, bassguitar and rythm guitar
- Annabella Biedermann (fem) acting harmonica and zither
- Inga Nilsson (fem) acting vocal, bass guitar,keyboard, synthesizer, zither
- Mooni68 Oh (fem) acting brass instruments and fiddle
- Kurz Bert (mal) acting vocal, e-guitar and keyboard and synthesizer
- Doris Wisent (fem) acting vocal, keyboard and synthesizer
- Liz Sands (fem) acting trombone, fiddle
- TrickSie Anderton (fem) acting trumpet, trombone
- Melanielisa Shepherd (fem) acting drums and percussion
- GoodWin Frenburg (mal) acting guitar, synthesizer, drums
- zaphod Enoch (mal) technician, effects, contact person

Yay! :D

Thank you very much Rose, and Klaus and Annechen, for helping to bring the Tiroler Eck Show Band to Neufreistadt!!

I hope everybody will come by and get this chance to hear some great alpine and schlager music. TESB is really good and a lot of fun. :wink:

Rose, is the concert scheduled for 11:30 am SLT on Saturday June 20th, or on Sunday, June 21st?

NFS and AA anchor the Grand Tour, Summer Solstice Version

Post by Jamie Palisades »

We were delighted to have Neufreistadt again lead off the Grand Tour series of progressive parties hosted by SL premium themed estates, this last weekend. The well-received TIROLER ECK BAND kicked off the first party, at our home, on Saturday morning, and filled the sim with both traditional and modern Bavarian dance music, fans, fireworks and lederhosen. Our citizen Zaphod Enoch and Marktplatz shopkeeper Annabella Biedermann both are in the band.

Other themed sims participating in this 40-hour tour included Antiquity, Caledon, Edison, New Babbage, New Toulouse, Roma, Steelhead, Steeltopia, Victoriana and Winterfell.

Thanks again and congratulations to Rose Springvale, a founding steering committee member for the tour, and our Klaus Wulfenbach & Annechen Lowey who guided it this season; and well as Sonja Strom and Zaphod for introducing us to the band.

Thanks Jamie!
And thank you to all the CDS citizens who came to both the CDS sim parties, but also took some time to visit some of the other sims who opened their doors to us. The NFS and AA events both hosted 40+ people throughout the events, despite TERRIBLE SL operation (there was no NFS sim an hour before the band was to play, and LL announced that they'd be taking sims offline .. including the AA sims... for emergency maintenance at exactly the time Joaquin was to begin, but we were able to slip in before they took the sim down. Not without quite a bit of nail biting from our conductors... So give Herr Baron and Miss Lowey a big pat on the back!)

We had a great time getting to know new people and forging new alliances on this Grand Tour. I always spot check with people who don't know me to ask what their favorite parties were, and the Oktoberfest party was very high on everyones list. Zaphod and Anabella's band was perfect, and with luck we will get them to play for us again.

It always surprises me to see who from the CDS community comes to our events, particularly ones that allow us to show off our democracy and sims. I'd love some feedback from those of you who DON"T come. I know many of you have conflicts with the timing... and some don't like parties... but it would be great for us to be responsive to your wishes in the future by hearing what you DO want.
