“He is unbelievably sweet, and was very courteous and friendly to the staff,” says Meryl Klemow, spokesperson for the live-music club, located about 20 minutes north of San Diego.
“He was dancing and laughing and going from person to person. You could tell he was a big music fan.”
There were 10 people in his party, including two young women, “but it all seemed friendly,” Klemow says. They arrived by 9 p.m. for the sold-out show and stayed through the night.
Matt Burke, lead vocalist for the San Diego-based group Vokab Kompany, says he heard Prince Harry was watching from the VIP area.
“He was a real dude. He wasn’t putting on airs and acting like a prince,” he says. “Just to think he’s down with that scene is super-tight.”
But the prince and his group did make one request: adjusting the TV to the Rugby World Cup match, and the staff happily obliged. The group finally left at about 1:15 a.m.
Klemow says Prince Harry is welcome back anytime. “It was a royal treat.”
