Through sensitive ballads, fiery songs and spirited Celtic melodies Rapalje sparks the enthusiasm of the audience. A concert of Rapalje is like a journey through time with recognizable debauchery and raw lifestyle. Not only in the Netherlands, but also in Germany and Belgium Rapalje is very popular.

    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.
