» From idea to realization - or "be a part"

We received a lot of suggestions from you for the festival - and we like to implement many of them. There is one which is worthy to be published separately, and the implemention is asking for your help.

The recommendation was as follows: One band of the festival - preferably the one before the GoodBye-Session - should be sponsored by the "Freundeskreis" (circle of friends) of the festival. This "circle of friends" consists of those of you, who are in a position to afford financial support.

Since we were surprised not only by the proposal itself but by the positive reactions at the annual meeting and thereafter, we certainly want to make it happen.

Our proposition for a band was the GrandSheiks (DE), maybe together with N.M. Brock, and it met approval at the annual general meeting. If realized it will be the first "circle of friends" gig which will go down in the history of Zappanale.

You want to join the "circle of friends" and help to get a musically fulfilled Sunday at Zappanale #24: Then be a part!

We will find a solution.


Thanks for your hitherto commitments!

» Annual General Assembly November 17, 2012

Dear Arf's,
here's a short statement with a few pictures from the party after a delightful annual general assembly.

Topics which have been discussed and decided and plans about the future will be posted soon here in the news and in the statement of accounts.
But we like to reveal now that the focus of next Zappanale will be again the music of Frank Zappa in a more relaxing atmosphere and we will accept a lot of your suggestions. Of course we can't realize all the recommendations but we are looking for a broad agreement. Some of your ideas provoked a burst of laughter which loosened up the meeting - thanks for that :)

This year the members from Luxemburg and Stuttgart travelled the longest distance to join the general assembly - thank you for coming!

At the following party Nick Didkovsky (Doctor Nerve) fired up the audience. Afterwards Micha "Hundehagen" and "Tante Stoni Tofu" kept up the temperatures until the early morning. A big thanks to the musicians (and Daggi), they gave a great ending to the meeting. (Fotos: Steve)




» Begegnung

Hallo Freunde,

am Wochenende hatte ich wieder einmal so eine Begegnung,
wo ich die Betonung auf SO legen möchte.
Wir trafen uns mit Freunden im Hard Rock Cafe Hamburg
und durften (zu meiner Überraschung) als netten und
sehr unterhaltsamen Tischnachbarn J.J. Kravetz kennen lernen.
Der Abend war soweit super, aber beim nach Hause gehen
kam dann die erwähnte Begegnung. - siehe (klick) Foto -




Also wer Zeit und Lust hat.....schaut da mal rein. :-)

Ciao Tom
