I would like to take a small moment to reflect back on Friday the 20th and to thank our fans. We had a great launch of the new "live band" with Sven Ravenhorst, Lennard Franken, Mike Friedman, Julia Driessen and Janneke Ruesken. Our live band is a unique combination of young _ and vintage players complimenting each other. They did a great job and I am proud of this group and it is not often that I am so exited to play a gig. We also had a great crowd and it was packed indeed! The comments and likes afterwards are well appreciated by all if us. Thank you and see you at the next gig with some more modern day Blues. Don't forget to like us also on Facebook. www.facebook.com/BluesDog13 Warm Regards, Blues Dog
Den Haag.- ActiMusic the production & management company of Blues Dog announced today that the new go to live band of "Blues Dog & friends" is nearing completion to prepare for the festival season 2015 and to finish the second EP of the group by the end of this year. The band will consist out of Wilbert Kieboom (alias Blues Dog) - Guitar and vocals, Sven Ravenhorst - Lead singer and guitar, Lennard Franken on Bas and Julia Roberts on keyboards. During the next couple of weeks, the auditions for the drummer will be completed. The band thrives on strong vocals with dueling guitars in the Lynyrd Skynyrd tradition, a very quintessential “groove” player on bass and keyboards that allowe emotions and chords to take flight.For bookings of this modern day Blues Band, in the style of Joe Bonamassa and Gary Moore, please contact Ron Penning at PICA - firstname.lastname@example.org”
