Independence Day Parties

On the 3rd of July 2005 there was an Independence Day Party held at the Amerika Haus that had some 800+ guests. It was hosted by AGBC, DemsAbroad Munich, CBA, GABA and a few others. Despite some technical difficulties, a good time was had by all and the main attraction besides the southern style BBQ was George Green and he wowed the crowd with a surperb selection of Delta Blues and Jazz. It was truly a slice of Americana.
