Hans de Cock sings the French chanson with passion. Furthermore, he is an inspired interpreter of the Dutch sea shanties, moves effortlessly through the instrumental accordion repertoire (musette, tango) and also masters the English/Amercan guitar repertoire.
Above all: he is a charming entertainer, knows exactly when and how to address the audience. A joke now and then, but also an announcement of a speaker, an act or buffet, leave it to him!
The orchestra pit
Musical jack-of-all-trades with two right hands (and you yourselves may calculate how many left ones)
On a beautiful day Hieronymus van Capelle fires his entire orchestra. He had put all instruments on a peculiar delivery bicycle and ever since he shouts that he can do it all by himself. And, between ourselves, he surely can!
