Last weekend was great fun in Amersfoort. On Saturday I played with Zule Max. We were the finishing act at the “Hof” stage. The square (which is pretty big!) was getting so crowded, the organization had to shut the entrances!
Next day I played with Leticia y su Rumbadama at the wonderful cosy Groenmarkt location. Great to play with a smaller band and to have some more solo space! Performing with that band is always such a great joy!
Since I had a carpool date with bassist Adinda I had to attend the Cubop City Bigband gig as well. Can’t say I minded: it was a good concert with a good atmosphere, and I got to meet up with some old friends.
Last but not least: the jam session at grand cafe Vyssotski. Ramon Valle on the piano, Lesley Lopes on the bass, Liber Torriente on drums, Nils Fischer on congas, Alberto Caicedo on vocals and Adinda on campana (after five gigs her finger was hurting too much to play any more bass). Who wouldn’t like to join a band like that
Next gig with Leticia y su Rumbadama is September 3rd at “Het Witte Theater”, IJmuiden. I would say: not to be missed!
