Vincents city

Hello and welcome to The Mighty Small update. My name is Paolo Morena and I am a 21st Century One Man Band, Singer Songwriter from Essex. If you are new to my music or if you’re one of The Mighty Small Massive, welcome I’ve got some treats in store for you starting with a trip to one of my favourite cities Amsterdam. Having lived in Amsterdam for a couple of years, I try to get back there every year to visit friends and play the venues. One of my favourite things to do is to sit in a quiet coffee shop and draw. Watch the world pass by and my thoughts scatter for a few hours. In my opinion the best time to visit the city in the end of April beginning of May for the Queens Day Celebration. A tradition started years ago by the Queen mother. For a few days the whole city changes, the streets turn Orange, the sound systems come out and the bands and artists take to the streets, but be warned book up well in advance rooms come at a premium! Of all the venues that are close to my heart the Paradiso and Melkweg are perhaps the closest. Both incredible buildings with ultra modern sound and lighting systems, the perfect set up for any artist.
