Blues or NO blues

February 18th, 2013

The next couple of weeks Anne-Maarten will be travelling  in the land Down Under. So although we will be short on gigs, we will use this gap for finishing the work on the release of the new cd Kind of NO blues. The artwork is just about ready and Allen Ward is working on mastering the CD  in his  Electric City studio in Brussels. We are also working on a short tour in Germany which will  includes some Blues Festivals.

Er gaat niets boven NO blues in Groningen

February 4th, 2013

We always love to play in Groningen but we sincerely hope that  this time we will play without the bad weather. Last time we had a blizzard that prevented half of the ticketholders to reach the Oosterpoort. So it is especially for them that we will play some old songs that they have missed the last time.
There are a few tickets left which are available here.

We really enjoyed the show in Eindhoven with Sophie Cavez and Vasile Nedea in the almost sold out Muziekgebouw. We also had a record sale of cd’s after the show, so thank you audience for supporting our work!

We really enjoyed the acoustic gig at Praamstra Live! in Deventer. And we take acoustic seriously as in all mics away! The audience listened very quietly so the only thing you could hear were the songs and the occasional turn of a page. In the mean time we are getting ready to release the new double cd called “KIND OF NO BLUES’. Mixing is almost done (good job Ankie!) and we are ready to go to Belgium for mastering in a week or so.
