So after a long period of rehersing with Stijn I’ve decided to continue my search for a new percusionist/drummer. Due to musical differences we’ve decided to each go our separate way. So as of now I m again looking for  a rhythm man or woman.  So If you like to try out some of our tunes just let me know.

Two new musicians have joined me and Gunter on Violin : David van Ransbeek and on Key/backings: Isabele Pavone.

Bothe verry talented musicians with verry different backgrounds.

We will be playing our first gig together @ Stuk Leuven on the 6th of December. So come and watch the show.

Recording sessions

September 8th, 2010

Hey,

So we’ve started our first recording session. We all set up in my old home in the living room were there’s a lot of light coming in and space. During the next two weeks I’m staying here to create some new songs, invite some musicians  to play with and  record some new stuff.  The first day was a blast, we’ve managed to rec 3 songs : Paying a song For you,  Storyteller and This might do me good.

Playing a song was previously recorded but still needed a double bas and some swirling FX. the other two songs are still a work in progress. I still need to record the vocals and the gitares.

Thursday we’ll be recording one or two  songs depending on the time we’ve got .

Some new musicians already came along for auditions with was very satisfactory. Some new ones are coming next week.

anyway her are some pics of the rec sessions.

Dillian 3d place Rockvonk competition

December 3rd, 2009

rockvonck resizeSaturday 27th was a nerve wrecking day for me and I think for all the contestents of the Rockvonk 2009 competition.  Today would be decided who of the final 8 bands would win. “Amherst Avenue ” kicked of the night @ 20h and we were on for a good ride. Preforming second was Head Full of Flames  followed by Aegis. Next Up was me,  followed by Willow , Soldier six, Bad Cirkuz, and L’ame Buccale. Everyone  played a verry good gig so I was a bit nervous if I would be selected as one of the final 3. And yes I was very fortunate to end on 3d place.  Woooohooooo.  Head Full of Flames came in 2nd and Willow took 1st prize. Both verry good band and verry cool musicians.

I would like to thank everyone who came to see us , supported me, cheered, applaused, listened, drank, smoked, talked, and was.  Thank Youuuu
