Anniversary tour Motel Westcoast

For many years Motel Westcoast is a concept in theater. The colorful music group led by Syb van der Ploeg are traveling these days for the fifth season by our country. More than 100,000 visitors were in recent years witnesses of the formation of five musicians and four super vocalists and sang greatest hits from the American music history. Months prier to the show, the show is sold out. These are extraordinary figures and people of Motel Westcoast are therefore quite proud of it.

Edward Reekers, Brenda Aarsen and Julian Thomas are singing with Syb. The absolute focus of Motel Westcoast is on the polyphonic singing. Music that is not heard regularly in the Dutch theaters. For lovers there is a treasure chest to open big hits that are played at a high level by nine professionals. Diligently and with infectious enthusiasm they make a wonderful evening filled with feel good music.

Elfstedentocht up to date

Every day the trip gets one day closer, and though it 's been 18 years since the last time the Elfstedentocht was held, the plans are up to date.

In particular, the security has become a hot issue. At the last annual meeting it was decided that all members should start. There will be over 30,000 riders on the ice. An additional point of concern is to organize the security. All those skaters on ice means that there should be made more adjustments at that moment when they're skating on ice.

Bas Schröder

Born and raised in the shadow of Groningen city and with a limited vocabulary to Groninger accepts ' moi' singer-songwriter Bass Schröder knows nothing of the dialect spoken in the village. As your potatoes with gravy only can appreciate when you leave your family home. the Groningen language can be very nice, if you just say nice things, or sings.

That need to know more people, so in the winter of 2012, he acquires the Groninger New Dictionary of K. ter Laan and delves into the library for a tutorial Groningen. Naturally the first texts are born about broken hearts and broken clocks, about food and agriculture, holidays and unemployment: The dialect lends itself poorly to the grand gesture.

Swinder, his band, is the first Groninger act at Noorderslag.
