Highway 40 Blues

Danny; Labuan Malaysia, Day 3.

We woke up very early to go to the Miri airport and checked in to take the short 30 min flight to Labuan.

We were met by Roger Wang the current Vice President and incoming President of SPArKS; Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu Sabah. This is our third time working with Roger and SPArKS. He is a great guitarist/ composer and we have been lucky to perform with Roger on a number of occasions.
After we got checked in to our beautiful hotel on the waterfront, we had a quick lunch before going to the workshop we were giving at the International school.

Roger had set us up with some nice car rentals for the day;)

Just kidding;)

On the way to the school, Peter who is Rogers drummer, took me to his home to show me his mini drum kit inventions. He is a great musician and mad scientist inventor;)

The students at the workshop were very shy during the class, but as soon as we invited them up to talk with us on stage, they opened up and played song after song for us.

We love doing workshops and master classes for the students and we're so happy that we were able to work with the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur and SPArKS to make this happen for the third time in Borneo.

We went straight from the workshop back to the main venue to do a sound check for the evening concert.

The concert was so much fun and by the end of the night, Johnny and the band really had the place shakin.
Next stop, Kota Kinabalu;)
