Awkward In Athens - Gatecrashing A Greek Wedding Before The Encore!


A tour tale by Nicky Garratt

"At this show there was some trouble in the audience and Charlie and I got locked in the dressing room by the bouncers, which was actually an old cold storage room with a thick metal door.
After some time banging on the door, a man appeared from a previously unnoticed tiny door at the rear of the room. We, wearing our wet clothes straight off stage, were guided through the door and down a narrow corridor filled with crates of wine and bottles of beer.
Another tiny door brought us right into the middle of a traditional Greek wedding in a restaurant!
Everyone stared in silence as we walked through the restaurant between the tables and out onto the street. We promptly re-entered the AN club and did an encore!"
