Ok – so we didn’t get through last night, but I think for just the second time playing together live as a band, we did pretty darned good! Thanks to those who were able to come!
More time playing together and more gigs will just get us playing better and better, and then who knows! Looking forward to the next few months with the band; learning new songs and improving together! And who know, there is still always the wildcard entry for the final…
Wow! Had a really great first gig together with the new band last night! Was lots of fun and great to see some familiar and some new faces in the crowd! Thanks for coming those who could make it. Hopefully tonight will be even better!
Looking forward to the audition tonight for Park Pop. Fingers crossed (again ).
I’m afraid we still don’t know the exact order the four bands will play in tonight. The jury will decide on the evening…
What we do know is:
2030 First band
2120 Second band
2210 Third band
2300 Fourth band
0000 Announcement of the winner
Be great to see you there!
Park Pop – Exciting to hear that today we were pre-selected to perhaps play at the huge Den Haag music festival, Park Pop. Fingers crossed! Now we need your help.
On Saturday the 13th of April, we will audition for the chance to play at Park Pop in front of a jury at Haags Pop Centrum, Burgemeester Hovylaan 12.
The jury will be looking at the reaction of the audience so it would be amazing to have as many friends and fans there as we can to create a good atmosphere. The band contest starts at 2030.
“Close Enough” – Watch me play live on the piano in the studio a new track I’ve been working on.
As part of being the select act in January, 3voor12 put together a promotional video showing what Anthony Burford had been up to this month. Click below to read a written interview, see photos from live gigs and watch a video with snapshots from recent interviews and live gigs.

So a little bit surprised last night after a great time at the Piktureband Contest 2012. We won!!
Thanks to everyone who came to support us tonight – really appreciate it. A special thank you to every musician who played with me; all who stepped in last minute on Tuesday to play for tonight.
Looking forward to the next gig on Sunday!
This Friday Anthony is having a concert for the first time with the whole, full band (drums, piano, bass, female vocalist, guitar and myself). It’s at Paard van Troje in Den Haag for ‘The Pikture Bandcontest 2012.’ Be really great if you could make and support us.
The competition starts at 20.00 but we won’t be playing until 22.15. You can start arriving (FREE ENTRY, no ticket required; … and no free drinks except for the band ) from 19.00. After Anthony has played, they will announce the winner….
Anthony will be performing with Lovorka Holjevac on female vocals, Martin van Hees on guitar, Ron Jansen on drums, Misha Schreiner on piano, Indigo Smith-Polez on keyboard and Jonathan Spruyt on bass.
Really looking forward to it! Hope you can make it!
