Festivities at Stuttgart, Germany

Wednesday 22 July 2015 pictures (3) by Harald Engelhardt


Three Procols (Josh, Matt and Geoff D) and one Kellie.
The pink top-knot is part of Kellie, not of Geoff.

Jakob, Sari and Markku

Just inside the house, through the sliding door, Geoff Whitehorn has been trying out the Elyra guitar designed and made by our host Paul and
our fellow-guest Tilly Fuchs. Roland's playing along on the piano, and this photo captures the moment when the Commander, Gary Brooker,
makes his very unexpected way to the drum kit outside (behind the reflection), to join in. The tune:
Memorial Drive

Drums, G Brooker, arriving at the moment for BJ's strange syncopation at the end of Memorial Drive

The next number from this curious trio was A Rum Tale

Gary then left the drumming to webmaster Jens (behind) and began to sing

'We drink fine wine' ... Grand Hotel begins

Amusement of piano-player as GB improvises a surreal verse of Grand Hotel to
commemorate the various special dishes and libations provided for the guests at the party

During the Russian Interlude (Roland and Geoff fragmentarily visible in the background) Gary waltzes
with Sari from Helsinki and makes a Mildly Reprehensible Joke that we cannot repeat here.
Note the sophisticated piano-amplification strategy.
