June the 6th was another great evening with the Open Mic Night of the Singer Songwriter Cirkel Haarlem at Café Briljant in Haarlem. The owner Rob Alphenaar was doing three jobs at the same time! He acted as host and sound engineer while ensuring the guests were served the perfect beer. As café Briljant is an ABT café there is a lot to choose from.
Minke Jonk and Oli Tong opened the evening. They always have a surprise and this time it was their version of Beyonce’s Single Ladies! Pien van de Rest entertained the crowd with three great songs. MacHielo & KJ found the Open Mic Night through Stagefinder. It was their first performance together in a bar. I am sure they will do it again. Gwan Brandhorst likes to work with other artists. He invited Oli to support him on harmonica and improvise during a Bob Dylan song. Mark ‘Man with Guitar’ Werkman always sticks to his own style and quality. Florentien Mol got everybody silent around the piano.
