My Band!

published: 27-12-2012
Dear people,

For those of you who like to ROCK and watch some more of that raging, jumping, bass-thumping action come and see the band TOASTER perform.
I founded this band, together with Allard Gosens (git.) and Dennis Elderman (drs.) two years ago and we released our first record called "Fried Air" (available on iTunes).
Check out the band's website for audio, video and tour-dates.

See ya, rock ya!

New Future

published: 11-01-2012
After six years of having great and successful times I have decided to leave The Ana Popovic Band. As of June 2012 you will be seeing a different bassplayer with this band.
2012 will be an exciting year for me. I would like to look more into different projects and focus more on my own band called Toaster.

Many, many thanks go out to Ana and her management for giving me this great period working with them! Thank you, I love you guys!
Also my buddies Mik, Stef and James for being the best teammates one can imagine!
Fans of The Ana Popovic Band: You guys are the best! Keep supporting this wonderful artist and her great band!!!

So I hope to still see you all on the different road I’m taking.

Rock on!

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since the last news was posted on my website. As you probably know, it has been a nice busy summer. Touring with the Ana Popovic Band and doing a lot of interesting show such as opening up for BB King in Helsinki, jamming with Buddy Guy in Chicago and many more things.
One of the main things is the release of the new album of Ana Popovic, "Blind for Love".
Last spring I had the honor to record with Ana in L.A. for this album, which was produced by Ana and Mark Dearnley, who has worked with AC/DC, Paul McCartney and other great artists.
On this great record, released worldwide on July 1st, we've been recording with Andrew "Blaze" Thomas, Tony Braunagel and Mike Finnigan of the Phantom Blues Band.
It was great!!!
So please go online and get that record, it's something you just gotta have!
