Gig Impressions: Dan & Julian

Hey guys!

I don't know about you but open air gigs are a must in Summer for me. The atmosphere is just different from indoor gigs, the people are more laid back and even the music sounds different.

Last Saturday I visited my good friend Dan Dietrich to interview him and film a session. As fate would have it he was set to play an open air gig later that day, so of course I was really happy about that.

Before I show you a few photographs from the gig, let me tell you a bit more about Dan.
Dan Dietrich is a singer/songwriter from Darmstadt, Germany. At the age of 15 he started writing his own songs, a year later he started gigging.
He's still carrying on with his music and is also part of the three piece band Dan meets Portland. The folk rock band consists of Dan, Julian Staehle on the drums and bassist Carlos Pereira.

Together with drummer Julian he performed at an intimate open air in Darmstadt.

As you can probably tell it wasn't a totally normal location. The gig was at a beautiful farm with sheep, horses and cows (the best backing vocalists ever by the way!). 
The whole set up was absolutely gorgeous as it really fitted the theme; lights everywhere, beautiful lamps, flowers, blankets - oh it was perfect.

And even though it was ridiculously cold for an evening in August, Dan and Julian did a brilliant job. The spot on performance, consisting of originals as well as cover songs, was a real joy to watch.

Thanks to everyone who made this freezing evening such a lovely event. It was a pleasure to be there.

I really hope you enjoyed the photographs. Make sure to check out Dan and his band.
