Coaching FLØD

December 2nd, 2017

The past months, we had the pleasure of coaching the band FLØD for Popsport.
Last Saturday, the final showcase event took place at the Q Factory in Amsterdam. All participating bands could present themselves and their coaches there. FLØD’s performance was beyond our expectations, we blinked a tear. It’s truly inspiring to watch hard-working people grow together, to watch them facing their challenges and eventually overcome their fears. Popsport and FLØD, thanks a lot!



Pim came to visit

July 29th, 2015

This Sunday, Pim came to visit us for the last time. It’s been utterly inspiring to work with him, he gave us a lot of motivation to go on and he triggered ideas in us that would not have been there without him. We had a lot of fun too, so thank you so much, Pim, please enjoy your holiday, we’ll be missing you!

Marike Jager came to visit

April 30th, 2015

Marike Jager paid us a visit twice to help us with our songs and performance. The first time we met, Henk-Jan Heuvelink joined her. We played the whole set for them. In the beginning it felt a bit awkward, but during the performance we got more comfortable.

Afterwards we talked about the different songs, the order in which we played them and the stage setup. We didn’t have a clear vision on these things yet; our focus had been mostly on the music. At the end we discussed the different songs separately and Marike and Henk-Jan really managed to get to the core. We felt connected with their comments, which felt like a great leap forward.

The second time Marike came along, she was astonished by the progress we had made in the meantime, that felt really good! She came up with a creative idea to finish the last song, which we will try out on our next gig.

Thank you so much, Marike and Henk Jan for helping us!


Rock that stage performance!

April 10th, 2015

It’s been a long day, we feel exhausted and reinvented due to the coaching by Jantien Koenders, a great director. We’ve been working with her on our stage performance.

The good thing about Jantien is that she sees who you are as a band, how that relates to the music you make and how you can make it come out in the best possible way, without ever making you feel like you’re faking something. She made us aware of how small movements can have a big impact, how to open a set in an interesting way, how to keep the tension in between the songs but mostly: how to strengthen the message of the songs.
