Perform 'till you drop

The concert of the Belgian band "Vive la Fete" on 18.10.2013 in the paard:
Vive la Fête is a Belgian music group from Gent formed in 1997 by Danny Mommens (guitar, vocals) and Els Pynoo (vocals).
The group is also popular in the fashion world, where Karl Lagerfeld is one of their fans, and has enlisted them to perform at a number of his big shows.
The singer Els Pynoo gives all her energy in the show
 I wonder how many days she needs afterwards to recover
Without her energy the show would have been half as interesting

Guitarist Danny Mommens is of the great long-haired rock type, and so the band finished off with a couple of rock numbers, while Els retreated to recover

 Roel van Espen plays keyboards, Gino Geudens the drums and

Ben Brunin Bass
A really great show... recommend it!

"Nelson can" and "Yes sir yes" in the Patronaat in Haarlem


SIGNE: BASS + vocals
MARIA: DRUMS + vocals
The band operates with several dogmas and a very noticeable one of them is that they don’t use guitars. The sound is original and "to-the-bone" simple, inspired by rock and punk bands like the White Stripes, PJ Harvey, Gossip, the Black Keys and Dead Weather.
The set-up with only drums and bass creates the perfect frame for the simple, yet very powerful minimalistic bluesrock inspired sound.
With charismatic singer Selina Gin in front, the music is taken to new heights when she roars out through the speakers with a power and confidence that has captivated audiences all over Europe.
(the text is taken from their website)
Yes Sir Yes is a band from Antwerp, Belgium.They are Tijs Delbeke (zang, gitaar), Tom Veugen (gitaar), Dries Laheye (basgitaar), Alban Sarens (toetsen, tenorsax) en Dave Menkehorst (drums)
They are also playing in the Supermarket in The Hague on 13/4 and in the Paradiso in Amsterdam on 1/5

Oh Mayhem

is the title of the latest, 10th album of the Indie rock band "Bettie serveert" from Amsterdam

Yesterday the band gave a highly energetic and dynamic concert in the paard 
Their name translates to "Bettie Serves", or "Service to Bettie", which is the title of a book written by Dutch tennis player Betty Stöve, who made it to the Wimbledon ladies singles final in 1977
The band is formed by Carol van Dyke, Herman Bunskoeke, Berend Dubbe and Peter Visser
There must be an eternal frustration of the drummer to have to stay in the background...
