My first and foremost activity is playing jazz guitar. Although I have had a classical guitar training, I started with my first jazz band when I was 16. At that time I lived in Breda, "the hottest place in the south", famous for the well known Jazz festival. I have played in a number of different bands, playing dixieland, hot-dance music, swing, bossa-nova and pop music. The music that I like the most is swing, ranging from trio's (Nat King Cole), small combo's (Benny Goodman sextet) to Big Bands (Count Basie). Some milestones:
  17 day tour with the Zeppos Big Band through Thailand
  Appearance on the Reno Jazz Festival with "Boswell Sisters"-vocal trio The Nootenkraaksters
  Appearance on the Palm Springs Jazz Festival with the JoJo Swingband
  Guest guitarist on the 50th anniversary CD of the Dutch Swing College Band
  Appearance on more than 24 CD's with different bands
  Live nationwide radio performances with the KaKa's and the JoJo Swingband
  Live recorded television-performance with the Beau Hunks

Performances with many great musicians
