ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Veldman Brothers": A solid band moulded around "bloodbrothers" Gerrit and Bennie Veldman: Gerrit on guitar, Bennie on Hammond and bluesharp together with Marco Overkamp on drums and Donald van der Goes on bass.

Infinite energy, visible joy, tangible synergy; music played from the guts: a mean and tight rhythm-section that forces Gerrit and Bennie Veldman into fabulous measures as singers, soloists and entertainers.

Four talented musicians with massive experience, influenced by each other and by original heroes like the Vaughan Brothers, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix, Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Smith and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

"The Veldman Brothers" follow these tracks respectfully: with covers, with their own songs and above all with a highly recognizable "Veldman Brothers-sound".

You I'l find "The Veldman Brothers" playing festivals as well as small blues joints and already they have managed to abash the audiences at every major bluesclub and festival in Holland.
Their first record "Home" was rewarded "Best Blues album of 2007" by dedicated internet-sites and radio-stations.

Blues, rhythm and blues, swing-blues and delta-blues, blues with a touch off rock and blues with a twist off soul or funk. "The Veldman Brothers" won't recognize any limits and obey to only one golden rule: "It has to be pure and straight from the heart".

"Blues and roots straight from the heart". Make sure that you've seen, heard and felt "The Veldman Brothers".

Wonderful Blues Album
I can highly recommend this album of the Dutch, four piece, Blues Formation The Veldman Brothers.
Bennie Veldman and brother Gerrit wrote all the songs, Bennie plays Hammond B3 and Harp and Gerrit is the Guitar player of the band. Donald van der Goes is the bass man and Marco Overkamp the drummer.
Since 2006 they are together and this is their second studio album after a Live album last year.
The 11 songs don't leave you bored thats for sure. It's shufflin', groovin' and rockin' all over the album.
The Hammond B3 is played in a wonderful style, never too much but present, so that the ballads are one of the highlights on this CD. You don't hear much B3 these days and so is this a special event.
On their first album "Home" the band sounded a bit rough but it was not bad, some people like that a lot.
The new album is produced at high class and as I said earlier all songs are written by the band members, no more covers.
The ballade "leavin'" is my personal hit, just perfect. Not overproduced, the instruments giving a nice smooth atmosphaere and the B3 got that wonderful sound.
Target is another ballade almost acoustic, Everyday I Play the Blues starts with a Bass soli and then the B3 kicks in, a jazzy feeling is the result and that sounds great.
The 7:20 minute Song "saw you there" got everything a good Bluessong needs. Guitar, Harp and a B3 solo. Slowly the song is developing into a finale grande with a wonderful voice of Gerrit.
Congradulations!
