40 Years in Business. Acoustic sets.

Well finally something is going on.

As you may remember, this month it is exactly 40 years ago since KAZZ started his music career, singing on marketplaces with his acoustic guitar.

To mark this event Kazz will perform some short unannounced sets on various market places (Enschede, Hengelo and Almelo) on Saturdays over the next couple of weeks.

Just like 40 ago with his acoustic guitar, playing classic tunes by Bob Dylan, Neil Young and some Dutch heroes like Boudewijn de Groot and Armand, but also a recent tune by AJ Roach.

KAZZ: “It’s very hard to do. I haven’t played guitar for some 33 years. I never was a brilliant guitarist. But it is real fun. I kinda like it. And it will be just for a couple of weeks. And maybe I will do some recording, because I have written a couple of new tunes. Hope to see you.”

Last Saturday Kazz performed a brief set of songs at the birthday party of Hella, one of the Kazzettes on the B.Loose album. Songs included were Heart Of Gold (N. Young), Sears And Roebuck Suit (AJ Roach) and two songs by Dutch songwriter Armand.

We got some pics for you (Thanks Hella)

On AJ Roach and Israel Nash Gripka

I’d like to share with you my feelings on a few gigs I recently visited.

First AJ ROACH. I saw him three years when he performed in my favorite local club, The Nix. I was thrilled by the show. Lately he visited the visited The Netherlands again for a string of gigs. and ofcourse, I had to be there. AJ has a unique way of writing songs. Combined with his way of singing it makes his show an unforgettable experience. Het played all the tracks from his new album PLEISTOCENE. Only just about 30 minutes long every song hits the heart (or soul if you like). If you are into singer songwriters I strongly give you the advice to listen.
There are also two official live bootleg recordings available. You can find them here

The second artist I visited is ISRAEL NASH GRIPKA. Not a household name until now, Gripka has released two albums so far and his latest, BARN DOORS AND CONCRETE FLOORS, was impressive enough to go down to watch the gig. I can only say it is just a matter of time until he will have his worldwide breakthrough. He is gorgeous, has a fine band. With a voice that is a bit reminiscent of Ryan Adams, John Fogerty or Neil Young, Gripka will be a star. Check him out!
