Last Sunday was the last Live op Zondag for this set of six concerts and to end this terrific series they had Ruben Hoeke and band over.
The Ruben Hoeke Band has been around for 25 years and is a terrific sound. The lineup is Erik Hoeke on Drums, Mike Kamp on bass, Lucas Pruim on vocals and of course Ruben on guitar.
The atmosphere for this last gig in the series was very good, festive and a fantastic playing blues band only made it better.
But there was more reason for festivities as both Erik and Mike had their birthday’s and got sung to on stage.
But the main thing is the blues where Erik and Mike laid the heavy funky foundations. Ruben was superb on guitar with great solos and Lukas the perfect addition on vocals.
As with the other concerts I do love the informal feeling. It’s a community house with a low stage and the musicians have a beer and a talk with the audience in the break of after the gig and the smaller scale feels just right.
Many thanks to Bas and Jellie for organising the event and please, please do a second series! And of Course thanks to the Ruben Hoeke Band for a terrific afternoon!
