Tour Diary: Day 1....And so it begins!

Thursday July 17th. 

It's the first day of the tour. 5 months of work, and we can't believe it's finally here! 

For our first night we're in Slide Lounge, a gorgeous French dinner cabaret theatre that we're transforming into a blues soaked cabaret this eve.

Given that it was the first time the performers and the Shantones were coming together things went surprisingly well...it was a (friend)love at first sight.
