We try to collect some feedback about the recent E-live festival here. If you have a review, or pictures to share, please let us know.
We’ll start with some great pictures, which are made by Andre Stooker, thanks for giving us the opportunity to share these pictures with our readers. More pictures down on this page.
And here is what Ron Boots said about this year’s E-live:
Sorry it took a bid of time to get my reaction on this years E-Live but here it is in one word “Awesome”.
I am still light in the head of all the great comments and lovely reactions. Fantastic photo’s and video’s. I have had so many positive reactions, on the own catering (I dreaded the reaction on that), on the concerts!! On the organisation and especially on the new Venue. And I can tell you the people of the CKE feel the same. They have told me that they loved having us there.
Many people found the new venue Great and I must admit the CKE is nearly perfect, the location, the concert Hall, the extra podium in the Foyer, the great Foyer in total and many loved the Balcony in the concert hall!!
I want to thank my helpers and I know I call them at times my Minions but that is with the most love I can give them. Bert, Alex (he made the great Tomato Soup), Johan, Rob, Jaqueline, Harold, Carla, Sonja, Sanne Boots, Sam Boots, Dylan Boots and Janis my deepest thanks. And they had great help from Marion Papen thanks for that!!
Bas Broekhuis for taking care of all the light sets during this E-Live. As the CKE has no light rigging we brought our own which ment that we had to put our truss at the back and middle of the stage. Not the best for the visuals but there was no other place to put it.
And a special thanks go out to Marcia ter Wee the housemaster of the CKE!! She helped us through these first steps in the CKE venue with such a great spirit and vigor that it made it so easy to make this day a succes!!
These are the people that make a day like this possible!! And with them the great musicians that where on stage.
Manor Logic – As always I missed these perfomrances but what i heard was that they where on fire, and did great sets on the Foyer Stage!! Thanks Dirk and Norman.
Elektronische Maschine – started the day with and energetic concert, could have been the closer of the day and partied on till the late hours! A great concert.
Skoulaman & Stephan Whitlan – The oposite of the opener, soft spacy music that brought us in a trance, a slow dream that made time stood still. Tranquil is the word here.
Spyra – Man this guy is superb, called him 6 weeks before the date of the concert, an instant yes to replace the last act and then make the audience so into his music is unique! A mesmerising concert!
Rob Papen with Harold and me! – I loved playing with these 2, Rob is among the greatest musicians I ever worked with (and I did work with a lot of others). He is gracious, a gentleman and such a fine musicians that it was effortless for me. And Harold solid as always made it great fun. This concert was over before it even begun.
Finaly you! Audience, well what can I say, Sold out!, a great atmosphere in the whole venue and the standing ovations! Man you are the best!!
I love doing these festivals but you the visitors make it very, very special. I promise I won’t play on next years E-Day or even E-Live And I will have time for more chats and talks!
A BIG BIG thanks to all!! ….And yes planning E-day 2023 has started Sunday Nov 13t, Ron
