Franeker (4)We had a great time at Franeker Rock and roll Festival. The sixth edition of this annual festival had two small stages and a main stage throughout the city center of Franeker (Friesland, The Netherlands).

The weather was rough, windy, rainy, but as we kept on rocking and rolling on the outdoor stages, we kept ourselves warm.


The Boppin’ Bastards with Sharon

We watched The Boppin Bastards featuring Sharon. A lovely lady with a great voice. She handled the Janis Martin songs very well. After her show she told me she just started five weeks ago with this band to replace the former singer. Coming from the blues and jazz, she had to learn 45 songs in such a short time. I admire this lady. She did very well.

Almost all the band played on one of the small stages and on the main stage as well. My band Dee Ann and the Nightcaptains were invited to play. The main stage was awesome. Great technicians, who gave us a great sound on stage. The audience went wild. Wim, Mars and Rene performed in their new captain and sailor outfits. You gotta have some sense of humor to come up with those sailor hats, and we do!

Backstage we met some other artists. Ivo of the Lucky Daltons who has great stories to tell inbetween the songs. The young fellows of Mainline 55.

Cars, candy, clothing stalls, hairstyling. Everything a fifties festival needs, Franeker got it. Can’t wait for next years edition!
