The Open Mic Nights organised by the Singer Songwriter Cirkel Haarlem at café Lokaal are always interesting and this months event was no exception. The performing artists decided it was best to go all acoustic and unamplified!
Rattle Unit opened the evening with new work. MacHielo also had new songs prepared! Another theme of the evening was playing songs they usually do with their band… acoustics and unamplified doesn’t leave room for a Wah pedal… MacHielo solved it by adding vocal wahs!
Gwan Brandhorst shared a couple of great covers on Rattle Units guitar. Xanadu shared his experience and impressions of Dubai through poetry.
Lodie Colette brought Daniël Mathot, guitar, and Wouter Groenhart, double bass, along. They play together in their band Handsome Harry and the Hummingbirds for some years. Their experience made it look so easy and they played an entertaining set.
Gert-Jan Kooren was the host of the evening and Rob Alphenaar opened the doors of his bar and took care of the liquid section.
