Corby – UK – Mar. 21 2015

From Paris to Corby! After a really (I mean really!) short night, we left Paris at around 6 AM,in order to catch the ferry to Dover. From there, another couple of hours in the tour bus to get to Corby and play at festival Moo-Ah! Lovely days! Need a...

Piano Buiten Festival – Sep. 12 2021

Sunday September 12th 2021 marked the date of the second Piano Buiten Festival in Culemborg. Last year I played two sets of my arrangements of the music of Frank Zappa. This year, I had the honour and pleasure to be invited again to come and play. No Zappa this...

Brasserie Berlage – Aug. 28 2021

On Saturday August 28th, I had a wonderful gig at a beautiful location, here in The Hague. Brasserie Berlage was the decor for Jim’s 75th birthday party. I played a white (!) Yamaha G2 grand piano. Lovely instrument. Nice detail … it was my longest gig ever. I played...

Beach Bar De Fuut – Jul. 8 2021

Le Zèbre – Paris – Mar. 20 2015

And then … all of a sudden, not even 24 hours after my fist concert with Zappatika, featuring Ike Willis and Jeff Hollie, we were rocking the house in Le Zèbre de Belleville, in Paris. Is this all really happening? It was a great concert. I remember there was...

Boerderij – Mar. 19 2015

On March 18 (a day prior to this concert), I met my idol Ike Willis. I remember him arriving late from the airport. I had no idea what I was supposed to say when I met him. Luckily for me, Ike DID know … as soon as he got...

Boerderij – Nov. 14 2014

My very first gig with Zappatika, featuring the amazing Jeff Hollie. Supporting The Grandmothers of Invention. What an amazing evening. And incredible to imagine all that happened in the years after. What a ride! Although the pandemic has put a lot on hold, I hope the continue on that...
