Belgian Tour Nearly Complete by Jeff Taylor

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

Hi Jeff, I was very impressed by your performance the other day in Lier Jan 19th. I guess I was the first one talking to you after the show, but I couldn’t remember the name of American singer song writer the “timbre” of your voice reminded me of. Well it was John Mayer (hopefully this is not offending). As you also have a lot of David Bowie and Jeff Buckley in you and your songs, I guess we will still hear from you. Take care, Marc
