Can anybody here read Dutch ? This is where I'll be on May 4th. We're the opening act listed as Chris Zalez. They had already promoted it that way because of Chris playing there before but we will also be adding some Tejas Brothers stuff to the show.

Hmm let me see

Nieuws
1 minuut stilte

Zoals bekend valt de eerste dag van Moulin Blues samen met de dag van de Nationale Dodenherdenking. Daarom vragen we iedereen om op die dag om 20 uur, net voor het optreden van Danny Bryant's RedEyeBand, één minuut stilte in acht te nemen voor alle Nederlandse oorlogsslachtoffers. We rekenen op je medewerking!

It says roughly that the first day of the Moulin Blues is the day of rememberance also. They ask that everyone at 8pm, before Danny Bryant's band comes on, that there is a minutes silence for all the Nederlandse people fallen.

Promo-spot Moulin Blues 2007

De nieuwe promo-spot voor de 22e editie is nu te beluisteren!
Deze spot zal de komende tijd regelmatig te horen zijn op Arrow Rock Radio en L1 radio. Je kunt ook de promo-spot downloaden.

Hallo Blues-fan! Zoals je kunt zien is een en ander gewijzigd hier. Vanaf dit jaar zal de website van Moulin Blues een actievere rol gaan spelen, vandaar dat we besloten hebben om dit te vieren met een facelift. De oude website hebben we met pensioen gestuurd naar roots.moulinblues.nl. Natuurlijk zijn we erg benieuwd wat jij van de website vindt dus we nodigen je van harte uit om je commentaar hieronder te plaatsen. Blijf onze site regelmatig checken want we hebben nog een en ander in petto.


Welcome to the new website. Things have changed here. From this year Moulin Blues is going to play a more active part, therefore the website facelift. The old website has been pensioned off to roots.moulinblues.nl .

Sorry its so rushed as I don't have time to do a full on translation but it'll give people an idea I hope. I'll get to the rest later for you :)

Very cool btw. Should be good :) When do you arrive there? Are you on a tour?

Very cool. No we are just going over for one day and coming back home. They've made the trip worth it money wise. They are paying all airfare and hotel accomodations and paying us a pretty decent wage for our performance. Thank you for the translation.

I didn't translate that as well as I could have. It actually says that you can vote and choose from 5 different songs by The Electrophonics on their site. Not vote for the top 5 :roll: Everything else seems pretty much correct though :)

I found this guy on THE RADIO!

From the press release
New York, NY --- Wind-up Records has signed Canadian artist Jeremy Fisher and plans the imminent release of his U.S. debut, GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY. The critically acclaimed singer-songwriter's album will be available on August 28, 2007. The signing covers The World outside of Canada, where Fisher will remain on Aquarius Records.

Jeremy Fisher is a troubadour and storyteller. His emergence as one of Canada's brightest stars is a direct result of the massive audience he has built touring. In true DIY spirit, Fisher supported his independent debut via a cross country tour on his bicycle, performing wherever the opportunity presented itself. That work ethic, and continual touring, has delivered a fan base that continues to grow exponentially on a monthly basis.

Fisher's homemade video for the song "Cigarette" has emerged as the first viral firestorm for 2007. Since the clip was posted to YouTube, it has been viewed 1,441,180 times as of this writing. As was the case with OK Go, the public has spoken. For a peak at the video, click this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGn0q1zoibw

On signing with Wind-up, Jeremy Fisher offered, "I feel better than ever about making music and art and videos, getting more involved with every aspect of my career. Signing with independently-minded label Wind-up Records is really exciting because I'll have the chance to work with truly interesting people to get my music heard in other parts of the world."

Wind-up President Ed Vetri shared, "Jeremy Fisher is a great talent. He has a growing audience in Canada, and with the YouTube phenomenon around "Cigarette", is building a significant level of awareness here in the U.S. and around The World. He has a bright future, and with his ability to tour with the DIY ethic, a perfect artist for Wind-up Entertainment to enter in to a partnership with." Fisher has entered in to agreements with Wind-up Records, its affiliated merchandising company Pronto Merch, and the Wind-up Development Corp.
