Allstar Refjúdží Band returns from triumphant tour of Holland

11.4.2011

The band played six great concerts over six days, featuring not only hits from its first album SPAS!, but also brand new songs that were exciting for foreign audiences. The ASRB hopes that it will have just as much success at the upcoming summer festivals in the Czech Republic.

Holland tour 2011
The Allstar Refjúdží Band capped its first big foreign tour on Sunday with a concert at the closing ceremonies of the International Community Arts Festival in Rotterdam, where their tour of Dutch cities began. In addition to two concerts in Rotterdam, the Allstar Refjúdží Band played at the Mondiaal Centre in Haarlem, the Muziek XXI Centre in Utrecht and in the recently opened Korzo Theatre in The Hague, where in addition to an evening concert the band also played in the afternoon for the workers to celebrate the end of the theatre's reconstruction.

Audiences reacted enthusiastically in all of the clubs where the band performed. In Rotterdam, the trio of lead vocalists, Philipp Schenker, Jing Lu and Miran Kasem, had the audience dancing almost from the first set. At the small club in Haarlem almost everyone bought a poster or CD and the atmosphere was enlivened by the presence of Miran Kasem's relatives. In The Hague, the band bewildered the fantastic technical facilities of the new theatre as well as the two-metre tall Dutch fans. In the Muziek XXI Centre in Utrecht, where the acoustic conditions were so good that the concert was recorded, the audience included many professional musicians who also participated in an afternoon discussion panel with the artistic director of the Archa Theatre Ondřej Hrab, the band master of the Allstar Refjúdží Band Michael Romanyshyn, and Jana Svobodová, the co-founder of the band and its artistic director.

The band played six great concerts over six days, featuring not only hits from its first album SPAS!, but also brand new songs that were exciting for foreign audiences. The ASRB hopes that it will have just as much success at the upcoming summer festivals in the Czech Republic.

The Dutch tour featured: Miran Kasem (lute, vocals), Philipp Schenker (clarinet, vocals), Jing Lu (violin, vocals), Gugar Manukjan (accordion), Lenka Dundrová (drums), Michael Romanyshyn (clarinet), Ondřej Milt (bass clarinet), Ondřej Komárek (contrabass), Kryštof Verner (trumpet), Anežka Urbanová (saxophone), Jana Svobodová (saxophone)

The Dutch tour was supported by the Czech Centre in The Hague and by Mr. Bessel Kok.
