My gig with The Record Man in Paradiso

The last time I played in Paradiso (Amsterdam) was 25 years ago with MAM. But this week I played in Paradiso again with a brand new band: The Record Man. A tribute to our friend Ron Kane who died last year.

I played with these wonderful people (some are very well known musicians in the Netherlands):

  • Tom America — sampler (he only played the song Pasadena, and on his own)
  • Pieter Bon — voice
  • Hans Croon (The Dutch) — voice & guitar
  • Marcos Kuzka Cunha (from Brasil) — bass
  • Bob Gaulke (from New York) — voice
  • Henk Hofstede (NITS) — voice
  • Fay Lovsky — voice & keyboards
  • Marco Raaphorst — guitar
  • Bob Schimscheimer — drums

It went great! Here are a few shots and videos which were made.

This week we will also be playing at the local festival NIMBY in The Hague. We want more? Who knows…
