The Royal Dutch Scam
The Royal Dutch Scam is a band with superb musicians around lead-vocalist and alto player Lodewijk van Gorp. The band : Marc Stoop, Boudewijn Lucas, Eric van de Bovenkamp, Erik Rutjes, Tom Beek, Dedre Twiss, Debbie Helaha, Simone Pormes, Lex Amrein and myself. We all love the music of Steely Dan….. check out our theatre-tour 2019-2020 !

We recorded this complete album at Mufis recording studio.... check it out !
Top 2000 Live
I’ve been playing with the Top2000Live band from day one, so I played all the theatre tours in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. We’re already working on a new show for december 2019. Completely new repertoire, 70 new arrangements selected out of the famous Top2000 list….. hope to see you in one of our Dutch theaters !
I played some barisax on the new Sven Hammond album Rapture. Congratulations for this superb album guys, love it !
September 2017 I started a brand new company called MUFIS. A professional recording studio in Leiden (NL) were we record, produce, teach and rehearse. The live room is big enough to record everything up to a complete band. The control and live room are fully equipped with digital and analogue gear. Of course there's the possibility to rent the rooms for recording, productions, masterclasses or rehearsals. Please visit the website
WWW.MUFIS.NL for more information.
From 2008 up till the last concert at North Sea Jazz in 2014 I played all the Alain Clark concert tours. The band was smoking at the summer-festivals, clubtours and international gigs. I really enjoyed Nice Jazz Festival. We had a great time playing with Alain Clark and full band at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2008, 2011 and 2014. If you like to hear some songs, please check the Video page…..
Once in a while I sit in for Benjamin Herman in the horn section of the Dutch band The Kik….. It’s great to play with these guys, they know how to make beautiful music !
Nick Bult All Star Band
With the Nick Bult All Star band we accompany a wide range of artists. Please checkout the Nickbultband.nl website for more info.
Niels Geusebroek recorded his album “Lines” at the Marmalade Studio in Delft. We recorded the horns and played some gigs to promote the album. You should check Niels when he plays in your neighborhood… he’s really great and plays with an amazing band !
In 2013 we recorded the song The Blessed Days as a theme song for the Dutch feature film Soof. The horns (Jelle Schouten, Martijn Sohier and myself) were recorded at Studio Arnold Muhren in Volendam. We also played some gigs with the VanVelzen band to promote the single.
I played the Waylon club and festival tour in 2012 in a hornsection together with Ben Rodenburg and Lorenzo Mignacca.
On Sunday April 17th 2016 I played a CD release with Tristan at the Patronaat café in Haarlem together with Cees Trappenburg. We didn’t play on the record (my Belgium “Heavy Horns” friends did the recordings !), but because they’re not available they asked us to sit in….. and from then on we’re joining the band when possible… so check out our new live-album release on sunday april 8th 2017 ….
Sandra van Nieuwland
In 2013 I played the Sandra van Nieuwland Clubtour together with my good friend Cees Trappenburg on trumpet. We had a great time touring around Holland on this completely sold out clubtour.
From 2002 up till 2012 I played all the Clouseau Sportpaleis concert series, so more than 100 concerts, each with an audience of more than 15.000 a night in 10 years gives more than 1,5 million visitors !… It really was a blast, especially because we played the live gigs and the recordings with a very tight horn-section “The heavy Horns” with 6 horns. If you like to hear or see some, please check the discography and video page.
Nice to sit in for Tom Beek in this great band with Tim Akkerman, you guys rock !
With my friends Jelle Schouten (trumpet) and Martijn Sohier (trombone) I’ve been touring with Natalia in 2008 and 2009. The 2009 tour was with a complete dutch band (Hans Eijkenaar, Michel van Schie, Leendert Haaksma, Ronald Kool). We played at summer festivals, clubtours and big stadions all over Belgium. Natalia rocks ! I also played on her first record (released in 2003), check out the album page.
Sven Hammond Soul
In 2010 I started to play with Sven Hammond Soul together with Tom Beek (sax), Rik Mol (trumpet), Joost Kroon (drums), Glenn Gaddum Jr. (bass), Tim Eijmaal (guitar), Sven Figee (organ) and Roland Dirkse (engineer). We played numerous of concerts and recording sessions. At the Marmalade studios in Delft we recorded our own material but also albums for other artists like Shary-An and Niels Geusebroek.
