Day 7, Gipsy King Tour
2 Days in Kitchener ON
We pulled into Kitchener, Ontario, which is just an hour and a half west of Toronto, this morning at 11:45 after a 4 a.m. departure on the tour bus from Montreal. We were hungry and road weary but excited to know that we would be sleeping in our second hotel on the tour.
Our first day in Kitchener was spent walking and eating our way around this lovely town; starting with a tasty vegetarian lunch at Cafe Pyrus, and a delicious and romantic Italian dinner at 271 West Restaurant, with incredible blues at Rhapsody Barrel Bar. Very coincidentally, shortly after we sat down for dinner, the Gipsy Kings music came on the sound system. Now if that's not a sign that were at the right restaurant I don't know what is. The waiter had no idea that the GKs were in town. He told us that his dad plays the GKs playlist at the end of every evening to energize people and start closing down the restaurant. Small world huh?
After dinner we headed down the main street to a bar called Rhapsody where it was an open jam night where we got to experience some incredibly talented blues musicians. The video below is a compilation of the amazing talent we saw.

SPECIAL FAN PACKAGE
NEW VIDEO and SINGLE RELEASE
The new video and single for The Fearlessness is the title song. This rocking anthem about being fearless is a timeless song. The song is going out to radio stations across the United States right now and being added to more stations every day. The single will be available as a digital download on September 7th as well.
The video was shot by Bryce Johnson at the top of the Park City ski resort (10,000 feet above sea level!) and right where we got married 25 years ago so it is a very special spot. This is the first time we’ve worked with Bryce and we think you’ll agree that it’s an incredibly beautiful work of art! We’ll be promoting the video and single all over the place so please help us make it go viral by sharing and posting on any and all social media. We SO appreciate our fans help!
