I want to thank Willem for his great work at organizing the festival! I had a really good time yesterday. And I really enjoyed playing there.
It was nice to watch all the other fretless players. Everyone did a great job.
Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to talk to you all but I did talk to some of you and it was great meeting you.

I wish everyone who is playing today success with their gigs. Unfortunately I can't make it today.

So again kodus to Willem!

Hi Everybody, I would like to thank you all for participating at this event. It is only possible because of you. Posted Image You made the trip and played just for love (and 5 blue plastic consumption coins!).Some of you have been here already three or four times so that says a lot. Melle has been I think 6 times! Albert Dambeck 4 times, Jeff 3 or 4 times, Gunnar also 3 or 4 times. Jay 3 times. I should make a list with all the artists that have played through the years! People like the festival and meeting other fretless guitar freaks. Also, we might not have the best reputation when it comes to "the stars of the fretless guitar" like Erkan Ogur or whatever but I saw some really talented players out there. This is the reason I like organizing this event. Barend Tromp, the Dutch Player, was really a revelation. He has perfect pitch and has a beautiful sound. And his bass player Eugene was something special as well! Jahloon brought this amazing instrument! It was a blast to see my friend again! I was surprised he made it back to his hotel on Friday evening! :-)On Friday he arrived just on time from his flight and was a bit stressed during his set. But saturday he had more time to show off his beautiful guitar! Amazing thing! Melle had a cool set. He's always out there in the stratosphere and I'm happy the DFGF is a great platform for his sounds! Each year he does something different!!!! I was also very happy to meet Tellef! I think he's a great man and I was able to finally get to know him after years of e-mailing each other! His set was quite intense and he's a man with a lot of energy when it comes to guitar playing! I really enjoyed the set he played together with Gunnar! Scandinavian improvisations in Holland! It doesn't get much better! :-)Wonka is just amazing. I've seen them many times and I just don't get enough! The drummer is amazing! What a swing! Gunnar played beautiful! The guy that really surprised me was Craig Scott. I personally really enjoyed his set with a sax player and drums! He's also really young and has a great future! MTS trio was also super cool! Both nights playing a great set. Jay has been 3 times to the DFGF and I always enjoy his company and his beautiful wife Carro's company! They are such sweet people! And also great musicianship from his Hungarian rhythm section! These guys travelled 25 hrs by bus just to play for half an hour each day! That is amazing! That is love for music and dedication, thanks so much! And Scott McGill was an amazing closer! He can really, really play, no bullshit here. It was great fun to play with him and it was very inspiring to see him play so close! What a fine guitarist! So all in all I had a blast again! And I think this 7th edition of the Dutch fretless fest was something special. I have never had so many acts that want to play. It was great great fun. I hope you all enjoyed as much as I do. Next year again!!!! Thanks really, you made it happen! WIllem
