I didn't even announce I was going to be in the Grote Prijs. It all happened so fast. One day during the conference I wake up to an SMS that reads, hey Bryan, somebody dropped out of the contest due to personal reasons, would you like to compete? lol..
Anywho, this meant I had to call my band..Unfortunately 2 out of 3 had exams and couldn't make it. Luckily I got Jonathan Hoevertsz and Alex Driesprong to join Jason Zeng and I so in the end, after 3 band practices we got on stage.
The performance was fun, the crowd was awesome and we won the audience prize as a result. Too bad the jury didn't feel the same way, but that's ok. They are people too.
