Tomorrow is the Islamic New Year so from today 6pm until tomorrow 6pm, no alcohol is served and no live music is allowed. In other words no clubs are open, a lot of bars and some restaurants close and all musicians have a day off! This is called a dry day. This happens a handful of times per year, there was recently a dry day during Eid and if for example a Sheikh dies many dry days can be announced.
When this occurs we normally arrange get togethers or house parties. It’s not often musicians are off on the same day. Today is no exception and the Swedes from Jebel Ali are coming over later for dinner, drinks and music. Yay! 🙂
