Welcome to the Sand Family Band “All Around This World” tour for the summer of 2019! This summer the family band is taking a ludicrous leap and landing in Europe! Over the course of seven weeks traveled and played about two dozen concerts in a half dozen European countries. We took 10,000 pictures! For quite some time we’ll be filling in this page with photos and video from the road.
