Guitar player Adrian Vandenberg will return to the Boerderij with his band Vandenberg's MoonKings for a special release show. Adrian rose to fame in the first half of the eighties with his melodic hard rock band Vandenberg, best known for their international hit Burning Heart. Many considered him one of the world's most talented hard rock guitarists, so did singer David Coverdale when he invited him in the early 1980’s to join his hard rock super group Whitesnake.
After his departure from Whitesnake Adrian turned to painting and has since become an accomplished airbrush artist. His work has been on display in many prestigious galleries both in the Netherlands and abroad, but the music never lost its pull…… so when the opportunity presented itself to work with a bunch of young and very talented musicians, he didn’t hesitate and instantly started to write new songs. Vandenberg’s MoonKings’ line-up is: Adrian Vandenberg (guitar), Jan Hoving (vocals), Sem Christoffel (bass) and Mart Nijen (drums).
RUV is a blues rock trio that draws its inspiration from the guitar violence of the second half of the last century. With bared teeth RUV chases the skinny Gary Moore, the sober Bonham and the brisk Cobain into their time machine, right back to the present. Like hungry wolves they surround you with howling guitars, a growling bass and mesmerizing drums. Then they grab you for a portion of genuine modern blues rock in the line of Jack White and his Raconteurs. Europe knows no boundaries for the pack called RUV. This still endemic species has the strong territorial instinct directed to face the entire continent.https://www.ruvband.com/
