The second half of our release tour started out great! We enjoyed the shows in Nijmegen, Amersfoort and the one we played last Friday at the beautiful room of Groothuis / Apollo in Emmen. You can find a 3v12 Drenthe review for this show here and a review from Woest en Ledig Blog here [both are in Dutch alas].
We'd like to inform you about some changes in our tour calendar: Our show in Leiden was planned to take place at the Gebr. Nobel venue but has been relocated at Q-Bus. Our supportact for that show is Glossy Jesus. The sold-out Mudboat Session on March 5th has been moved to furniture and antique store "Vivre Interieur Authentique" at Stationsweg 19, Nijmegen. We share a double bill with the band Point Quiet that night.
In the next few days we'll visit Gouda, Arnhem and Venlo. We'll see you soon!
First of all best wishes for 2016! We are currently busy working on a few new songs but first of all we are pleased to present you our upcoming shows for 2016 in the Netherlands, starting tonight at the ES/NS Festival in Groningen. We hope to meet you again soon!
On Sunday evening Hendrik-Jan, Bas van de Looy and Martijn played a modest but soulful version of 'September' live on national radio for the NPO1-program 'Dit is de Dag'. The other guests were Roderick Vonhögen (aka "The Media Priest") and Bert Jan Lietaert Peerbolte. Listen to the song (and a short interview before it) here.
We had a great weekend anyway... After an enjoyable acoustic/stripped-down performance at Vondelpark3 in Amsterdam on Friday we really loved to play all-out on Saturday night with our friends Alamo Race Track in De Schuit in Katwijk.
We are looking forward to our November shows!
Our releasetour is in full swing by now. We are enjoying the enthousiastic responses we've gotten so far and hope to meet more fans at our oncoming gigs. We also performed live for several radio stations to promote our album. While most of these performances are acoustic we were stoked to perform live on the air with the full band for Tros Muziekcafe on Dutch national radio (Radio 2). Also one of our songs had it's brief but significant national TV-debut last Sunday: a fragment of 'Heartbreak' was playing in the background on NPO3's 'BNN 3 op Reis' travelling program, adding some jangle and harmony vocals to co-host Chris Zegers' travels around Asturia, Spain.
As if we weren't busy enough we managed to add a few in-store performances to our roster. This Saturday, October 23rd, we'll perform at Kroese in Arnhem and Sounds in Venlo in the afternoon. On Sunday November 29th we'll perform at the Plato stores in Deventer and Apeldoorn. We've also added some shows for Februari and March 2016 so keep a close eye on our tour agenda!
Then there's a last-minute acoustic gig added to our roster we'd like to mention: On Friday October 30th we'll play at Vondelpark 3 in Amsterdam early in the evening. If you are around have a drink with us!
A shared love for melodic and uplifting guitar-driven pop music brought the members of The Maureens together. The Maureens debuted in 2013 with a selftitled album that contained a distinct mixture of sixties nostalgia and nineties era indiepop. Sounds from The Beach Boys, The Posi
