    First aired: Friday, 12 February 2016 at 18.00 hours

    In SoundCHECK we go along with a northern artist to one of the greatest pop venues in the Netherlands!

    No other than Jack Bottleneck is going to be followed in SoundCHECK. Jack Bottleneck, also known John Venema, is a blues musician who stands out for his distinctive raw voice and he comes from de Friese Wouden. Johan Keus is Johan's musical partner and plays along with his versatile game on bass guitar, guitar, banjo and percussion. Today Jack Bottleneck is the opening act for Danny Vera at the Melkweg, Amsterdam. It is an achievement on its own to be allowed to play in de Melkweg. For Jack Bottleneck it is an unique opportunity when he was asked personally by Danny Vera to be in his supporting program. Danny Vera explains why he made that decision. Of course Podium.TV was present at the performance of Jack Bottleneck in de Melkweg.

    About this program:

    Before a musician on stage is, the written press, composed, rehearsed and just before the gig the time comes for the Soundcheck!

    Soundcheck is an music on Podium.TV. We are visiting a wide variety of musicians from the north. (Cover) bands, DJs, Dutch singers and singer-songwriters; musical northern Netherlands is discussed. Where they rehearse and how this is going to? How do you write a new song? And how does a CD presentation?

    So we end up in old garages, nostalgic rehearsal rooms, but also in professional studios and tasty busy music venues. Additionally, you can every week to enjoy a wide variety of video clips and a classic "golden oldies" from the old box.

    Tip the editors when you know a great band and want more of it as a groupie know.
