Michael Franti & Spearhead @ Paradiso - Amsterdam(NED)

(Poster at Paradiso)

The door was opened at 7:30 pm and so many people wanted to come in. I had a wonderful place on the right side two steps about the crowd and 10m from the stage. I didn't leave this place the whole show. The show started at 9:15 pm and they stopped playing at 0:45 am, so it was 3 1/2 hours wonderful music - so much power so much love. I was dancing the whole time and feeling great, singing all the songs I know - so at the end I had no voice anymore. I got tears in my eyes when Michael told about his father's death and they played "Never too late". After the last song Michael was with the audience, hugging and talking with all the people who wanted and they were many - also me. So this concert was my absolute most emotional exSpearience - I don't know if there could be any intensificaton.
Thank you Michael, thank you Spearhead, thank you Amsterdam.

Michael Franti & Spearhead @ Pfefferberg - Berlin(DE)

(Stay Human - 2001)

It was a pure chance that I did not miss this concert. because some days before, I saw a small poster of the "Stay Human"- Tour of Michael Franti & Spearhead at a container for glas-recycling. One day before the gig I bought the Record. I didn't know the location Pfefferberg before but it gave me from the first momemt warm athmoshere. The gig started with "Oh my God" and "Stay Human" and the audience was a part of the show. For the first time in my exSpearience I felt that there is something special. After the last song I saw that Michael was with the audience so I did the same. Outside the hall I talked for 1/2 hour with Pappa Pretty.
The next weeks this gig was always in my mind and I get to know the great community at the Spearhead-Messageboard.

Spearhead @ Loft/Metropol - Berlin(DE)

(Chocolate SupaHighway - 1997)

This record is in my opinion not one of the Best. The words are strong and there are some good songs, but the whole record sounds like mixed at the computer e.g. the drum - so there was no real atmosphere like Home.

And I got the same feeling at the concert. Maybe I felt somekind of predjudice but Michael was not that friendly man I would get to know him some years later. At the end of the concert Michael introduced Spearhead. All members of Spearhead except the drummer got nice words from Michael. He excused himself for the badest drummer they ever had. And this made me angry when I left the concert-hall.

Home - San Francisco(US)

(Home - 1994)

A new name - new music. The sound was quite different to the sound of The Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy. It was FUNKY and I liked it from the first moment although I expected music like DHOH.

Home is one of only some few records I can listen from the first to the last song.

I don't know if there was a Home-Tour but these years were the last ones of my study in Geology - staying long periods in the Alps of Austria, Switzerland and Italy. The music of these hot long summers was a taped exSpearience of the last years and it was called "Funko-Grazy-Ghetto-Music". Spearhead is a part of it and for me I tell you what it is - it is my "Dream Team".
