Tonight we’re playing in Lier. This is the first of the three remaining shows. Here are a few images to share from my travels in Belgium.
Above are pictured Dirk Van Gompel (on left – lighting engineer) and Luc Pauly (on right – sound engineer). They handled things for all of my sets with Gabriel. Many thanks, fellas.
Here’s the Gravensteen, the only surviving castle in Flanders, the Flemish-speaking part of Belgium. Constructed between 1157-1191, it’s been used over the centuries as a prison, a mint, a cotton plant, and of course as a museum (its current calling)… Anyway it’s a castle and the first one I’ve ever seen. Bazinga*.
The following picture is for Larry D.
Finally, a temporary farewell to Billy Kerkhofs, the guitar technician and not-so-old patriarch of the Gabriel Rios crew. Always a true Belgian gentleman, he is seen here with an offering of fruit for the photographer.
With Love From Belgium,
*Bazinga – An exclamatory term used by police officers and deejays in Sint-Amandsberg, Ghent.
p.s.- Addendum: I just found out that the term, ‘Bazinga,’ is actually from a network TV show. 20 Jan
