Last monday i unexpectedly went to a concert of Allen Stone. This American white soul nerd, who’s a son of a preacherman, has an outstanding live reputation and he had the audience in his control from the the very first notes.
Together with his band he played a modern soul-revue somewhere between Prince, D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder.
I was so glad that i didn’t missed this concert! (and i loved the Sly Stone t-shirt he was wearing).
His support acts were (Magnus) Tingsek (Swedish Soul singer songwriter) and Lisa Lois (dutch X-factor winner). Tingsek joined Allen Stone on stage to perform this beautiful song by him.

Last week i had the pleasure to see Electric Wire Hustle perform for the second time. The concert was held in the recently opened venue: the North Sea Jazz cafe. As you may expect from a jazzclub, the sound was exelent and i liked the concert even better than the first time. They also played a new song from the upcoming album (didn’t film that one). After the show i had a little chat with these relaxed guys from Wellington (New Zealand) and they signed their album (on vinyl!) for me.
