I was in Ghent last Thursday and I went to a jazz tavern with my friend. The place was very small and as full as it could be, but the atmosphere was very nice and friendly. There was a three-member local band (All Of Us) and they played a nice set of well-known cover songs. Both me and my friend enjoyed the night immensely and judging by the applause, so did the rest of the audience as well.
For me it was a very memorable experience, because I haven’t felt so at ease and so relaxed in a pub ever before. Everyone seemed to be very friendly and the owner of the place was sitting there listening to the band and talking with people. She even offered a free round of drinks for everyone during the evening! I also talked for a while with the singer of the band and he told he had been jamming with some Finnish music students in Ghent.
Altogether it was an unforgettable evening. :-)over 5 years ago
