Deeldeliers in Simplon

You don’t get to meet living legends every day. People that have such a rich history in music and poetry and are instantly recognizable by how they dress and talk. In the Netherlands just about everyone will know Jules Deelder. Poet, writer, performer, collector of a truly incredible vinyl jazz collection, promotor of detergents for black clothing and an important part of the Deeldeliers, a musical partnership with Bas -Dominee- van Lier. They came to Groningen last night.

Gemma Ray at Jazzcafé De Spieghel

In October 2013 Seasick Steve played at the Oosterpoort venue in Groningen an brought a fantastic opening act with him: Gemma Ray. As I already owned the most important Seasick Steve albums I headed for the Gemma Ray albums after the gig. Loved the album and the concert was terrific too. And now Gemma is back!

Marike Jager’s The Silent Song theater poster

Felt quite proud when Marike Jager requested the use of a photo for a touring poster. The tour is over now and Marike was kind enough to send me a few of the ‘larger than life’ posters :)

Thank you so much Marike, it’s awesome :)

Oh Susanna in Vanderveen on RSD15

While I was enjoying the Vanessa Peters concert in the Groninger Museum on Friday evening, the Vanslag venue in Borger had Oh Susanna on stage. Oh well, you can’t be everywhere all the time and I was in luck as last Saturday it was international Record Store Day and Oh Susanna would play a set in my local record store, so I got to see them after all!

Sascha Elisah and Vanessa Peters in Groninger Museum

I’ve seen Vanessa quite a few times now, mostly in small setups. Either completely on her own or with one or two supporting musicians on guitar, mandolin or violin. But now Vanessa is touring with the Danish band The Sentimentals, a chance to see her with a full band and on stage. But there was more last Friday evening, first Groningen based Sascha Elisah would be releasing her debut single!

The search for a new studio flash system

Looking for a new studio flash is not as easy as I had hoped. Where the Internet is overflowing with reviews on cameras and lenses, the amount of studio flash reviews almost next to nothing.
