From The UK, Sean with Dig Wayne traveled to Berlin Germany where they rehearsed songs and made demo
recordings for Dig Wayne's new record.  Axel Prafeke and Ike Stroller with Mark Lehman on bass worked
with Dig and Sean in Berlin on the project.  Following the week of recordings in Berlin, Sean and Dig said good
bye to Axel and Ike and joined up with Randy Richter on drums and Vasilli Braband on bass for concerts in
Berlin and Munich.  With the help from Bavarian great, BIG EL, the band concluded business... said good bye...
and all went separate ways... Dig back to the USA and Sean...

This extremely talented, and well rehearsed combo accompanied Sean for two concerts in Switzerland; Balsthal and Erlinsbach.
Both shows were played to packed audiences that helped Sean and the The Dogs close down both houses well after midnight! 
For those that were there... no worries... SEAN WILL BE BACK in September, 2006, March 2007 and August 2007!!!
