OK, truth is we're here because I gigged, thrice, at Palette, the best small music bar in northern Germany. It's in Sleswig-Holstein, in the Plattdeutsch, the flat lands on the border with Denmark and the coast of the Baltic. I love it here.
The proprietor of said music bar, Hans-Peter Scholz, is a work of art in his own right. A 70-something cool dude who knows good music when he hears it (of course I'd think that), and creates a great vibe for guests and artists alike.
Sometimes you get lucky. I loved playing here. Angelika and I were welcomed warmly this time, too, and we've had a great stay.
