The music community in my homeland of Holland is very diverse. But they are also very capable of joining forces whenever someone raises a flag for a great cause.
Ruben Hoeke once donated a guitar to our orphanage, but he wants to do more. I told him about a condemned building that houses 16 of our kids (including four babies). Their dorm is infested with mold and has already caused serious respiratory problems with some of the youngest ones. They need to get out of there and have a safe roof over their heads.
Ruben called a few friends… it snowballed beyond imagination. Within 48 hours, every musician I know (or will know soon) responded to the call for help. Operation RED HOUSE is already full speed. I will post updates as soon as they happen. Just a couple of friends who already committed to RED HOUSE:
Jan Akkerman – Hennie Vrienten – Marcel de Groot – Rob Winter – Paul de Munnik – Kees Baars – David Hollestelle – Music Maker – Gibson – Arjan Vanderlinde – Manuela Kemp… A full list will be published soon.
