Maloe Melo, Waterhole Amsterdam and other fine locations to play

Hi there!
It's early in the morning because the clock has turned one hour back, we go back to wintertime again!
Last week I was free from work as a teacher, so I had some extra gigs and had much fun with my bassplayer and soulmate Mario. We played a full sett at Maloe Melo, and there is a nice clip on facebook, a nice guy called Rory filmed us, you can watch it here: Maloe Melo 

Maloe Melo is an old rock temple, when I was still living in Groningen I already had heard of this place and it is so great to play there your music because lots of famous musicians played there. Still, there are always musicians at this place, it's really worth it to come over right here.

I also played in café The Waterhole, a famous music cafe in Amsterdam, everynight live music, lots of good jams up there! And for singersongwriters the possibility to play there once a month. (songwritercircle Amsterdam).

Last night I played in this little town close to Amsterdam: Uitgeest. The place is called Dorpshuis De Zwaan.  We got there by train early at night, had some crackers, chocolate and red wine as dinner in the street just in front of the cafe and when we came in we were nicely welcomed by the people who work there. We played for about 80 people and the audience was attentively respectful and so quiet that i almost started to whisper ;)  This centre has a very good sound-engineer, the sound was so great! Another songwriter sent me this morning a vid he made, you can watch the vid here: De Zwaan / On a Raft at High Tide
I recommend this place especcially for comedians and songwriters!  

If you like what i am doing and if you like to support,  please let me know bij liking on fb - makes me going on - WOMEN go for it :) Annette on facebook

OBA Live radio 6 IKON

O yeah! This was a really nice night. After my schoolwork I went to the library and i was hungry and thirsty so I ate some cracks at the library and Mario brought some wine ...
The nice sound-engineer arrived around 6.30 pm and was NOT stressed at all when the bass didn't have any sound, just 5 minutes before broadcasting ( we were neither :) .
I was very very happy some friends showed up to enjoy us ( Hans, Gerrit, Auke, Flora),There was this interview with an actor and we had to play two songs. I must admit, we could do better, we missed Jannet, our violin player, but we did our best to play the songs Formless Creature and On the Corner, with just the two of us. Still, I think we did a good job, I didn't have monitor during the second song, so I had to sing a little bit louder, but I did not really care, the audience was nice and the people who work for this radio-station were very positive about our performance :)
After de gig we were invited to drink at the café just around the corner and so this was again a very nice experience !

Still drunk ...

I didn't drink that much, though.... I had to work today, so I couldn't affort going crazy ... but still, it was a crazy Sunday!
We started in rock café The Waterhole, in the centre of Amsterdam and then we went to café Langereis where we were happily surprised that  some of our music friends came along! So we were chilling, playing and having a good time together!
