The first time I’ve seen the international band Mighty Oaks they played a show at Moods Club in Zurich. They presented their first album „Howl“ during the M4Music Festival there and the song „Brother“ of them was played a lot on the radio stations weeks before this concert. The crowd was pretty impressed!
The second time it was a bit bigger. They were the opening act of Ed Sheeran at the Monteux Jazz Festival. They played a nice set with almost the same songs played in Zurich but they were even more solid than in Zurich and improved.
So on December 4th, 2017 it was time to see them again! I joined my buddy Werni and after a chill car ride and supper at the Highway Burger King in Lavaux we arrived at les Docks in the Olympic City Lausanne. Giant Rooks opened the night was some fresh Indie tunes. The band members look like some schoolkids. The Mighty Oaks show was awesome as they played some of our favourite songs! This band can produce such a warm and cool atmosphere with their beautiful songs! „Driftwood seat“ was amazing to listen as I’ve never heard it before and was the last one of the encore. We’ve also seen a photography exhibition of music legends like Motörhead Legend Ian „Lemmy“ Kilmister, Coldplay’s Chris Marting, Mick Jagger and more. After another great Mighty Oaks concert we travelled back to our night base Martigny where we stayed in a hotel of a famous Football Club President.
Thank you very much to my Boss Werni for organizing this adventure! Every concert is a true highlight!
