08-05-2019 Dizzy Moon 21 : The Yes Please / KEES
8 May 2019 @ 21:30
21st edition of singer-songwriter series Dizzy Moon (gone adult!), hosted by Mark Ritsema and powered by Popunie. Free entrance.
The Yes Please
Is it inappropriate to call The Yes Please precursors of the current flowering singer-songwriter scene of Rotterdam? No, it’s not, turning this highly creative and original band into living legends and even proto hipsters. Fixed value and brain of The Yes Please is singer and guitarist Rob van Gameren (once frontman of the no less legendary indie-progrock band Cheech Wizard). He is flanked by the vocal harmonies of Marjoleine Molenaar. The Yes Please play lyrical songs, fragile and stilled, but also capricious and merging into mesmerising polyphonic vocals with rasping acoustic guitars. This can be heard on their well-received first album Debut (2014). They already played at Oerol and Motel Mozaique and have a preference for special locations such as churches, monumental villas, old museums and even construction pits. Dizzy offers them a safe haven for a show not to miss.
Armed with a loop station, synth and guitar, KEES brings on a full band sound all by herself. In her skilled, slightly theatrical and often witty songs, she creates a world of her own, full of unsuspected spaces and corners. At the same time she shows her love for her home port Rotterdam with Dutch lyrics that are direct but never insensitive. Last year she gained the audience prize at de Grote Prijs van Rotterdam. Before attending next stop Grote Prijs van Nederland on May the 18th, KEES will conquer Dizzy Moon with her highly original and authentic repertoire and performance.
