After a couple of years it is becoming a tradition. Once his is birthday is coming up Jan Akkerman asks some fellow guitarists to join him to tour the country together for a couple of months. The name of the show: Knight Of The Guitar. Together with Jan’s regular band and guest vocalists a spectacular musical evening is guaranteed.
This year I went to see the show at Poppodium P60 Amstelveen. Usually I limit the number of pictures I post of a show to abt 20-25, but with a stage packed with great talent that turned out to be a mission impossible so there’s some more here this time…
Next to Jan himself the regular Jan Akkerman Band are: Coen Molenaar (keys), David de Marez Oyens (bass) and replacing Marijn van den Berg tonight: Richard Heijerman (drums).
Fellow guitarists: Anton Goudsmit (New Cool Collective), John Hayes (Mother’s Finest), Ruben Hoeke (Ruben Hoeke Band) and Leif de Leeuw (Leif de Leeuw Band).
Vocalists: Laurie Akkerman and Brown Hill.
