Ralph de Jongh held his album presentation last Saturday in the Vanslag church in Borger, a terrific stage where Ralph and his band Crazy Hearts played a fantastic concert to a swinging audience.
Last Friday House of Cosy Cushions came to the Groninger Museum with Twilight and with Alameda and a lecture on films it was to be an eventful evening.
Spending my Birthday with my girlfriend would be the best way to turn 39, so even though I ‘d just visited Barcelona in January, I flew back on February 28 to spend a few more days in that beautiful city. Escaping the cold weather in the Netherlands was a good reason too
I spent my birthday with my girlfriend in Barcelona and she treated me to no less then 5 concerts in my short stay, 3 of them on my birthday. With concerts like this it’s harder and harder to leave Barcelona every time.
Sensor cleaning is not fun, it’s nerve wrecking every darn time. Of course you can have it done. There’s professional companies doing this, however I’d have to drive halfway across the country for a good one here and the photography-stores around here send it in to that same company (and I’d loose the camera a few days!). So I’ll do it myself.
On Friday February 20 songsmith and story teller Chip Taylor returned to the Vanslag stage in Borger and found a packed church waiting for him.
In 2004-in my early days as a concert photographer- I saw Polar Bear at the Swingin’ Groningen festival. Had never heard of the band, but they made a huge impression on me and their album ‘Held on the Tips of Fingers’ is -together with ‘The Best Band You Will Never Hear In Your Life by Frank Zappa- the root of my iPhone playlist. It has and will never be removed from that. So finally seeing the band after 10 years was just awesome.
