Page 312: Reaching For The Best
Wow, I really had a fantastic weekend last week with two great concerts. On friday I saw the fabulous Miss Sharon Jones, for the sixth time already and still she and her band knock me off my feet. It was really moving to hear how she managed to recover from her severe sickness and it is almost unbelievable to see how she dances over the stage again after only such a short time.
On sunday we saw the favorite band of my daughter, The Kik. We gave her a concert ticket for her birthday and I also designed a band-t-shirt for her. The Kik perform a very original Sixties sound and cover famous tracks, but their way, in Dutch. The support was also very good, “The Black Marble Selection“. Very young lads, but with a very good sound and very enthusiastic. To me they sounded a little like Allah-Las but without the arrogant attitude, that really annoyed me when I saw them in Amsterdam two years ago. Today, I’m already looking forward to the next concert, THE SPECIALS, in only two weeks, in Utrecht. But now about you, what was your latest concert?
