World famous in The Hague for more than 10 years: the Acoustic Maniacs! This fabulous folk-rock band will be playing at Eetcafé Foots, in the Reinkenstraat 8 on King’s Day, Wednesday 27th April, 2016. Starts at 15.00.

foots-live-muziekFolk-rock harmony music

The Acoustic Maniacs were formed some 10 years ago. Since then they have performed every year in cafés, pubs and beach clubs for (company) parties and receptions and this year for the first time they’ve also played at festivals. You could describe the band’s style as semi-acoustic folk-rock music. The band is known for its great harmonies combined with lovely guitar sounds and guitar solos.

From Queen to Armin van Buuren

Their attraction is first and foremost the way they switch from modern numbers to the old classics, all played in just the right way. From full acoustic to half electric, from beautiful ballads to heavy sing-alongs. From the Eagles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits and U2 to Avicii, Mumford & Sons and Armin van Buuren.

Their audience’s reaction speaks for itself: there’s always a standing ovation!

Update 22nd June: Scharrelslager ‘t Oude Ambacht finished 3th place!

Who makes the best spare ribs in the Netherlands? From the hundred entries that this competition received, the ten finalists have now been announced and two of them are in The Hague. Better still: both butchers are just 50 metres away from one another – in the Reinkenstraat, of course!

Finalist Peter-Jan van den Broek: “It is bizarre, and at the same time great, that our shops are so close to one another. It says something about this street. When the ten names were announced we immediately congratulated one another, went out for a beer together and raised our glasses to the winners.”

Congratulations on gaining your place in the final Slagerij P.J. Van den Broek & Scharrelslager ‘t Oude Ambacht!
