The Tibbs – Concert Heijhoef Backstage Tilburg Netherlands 19.02.2016

IMG_7841The Tibbs in my favorite home town venue Heijhoef Backstage.

On a rainy Saturday night I went to see the Dutch Blues&Soul Band The Tibbs. Never heard from them, didn’t even check them out on youtube…but I trusted my friend John, who organizes the concert, for his excellent taste in new music..

And he was damned right! The Tibbs blew the roof off the venue with a dynamic and heartfelt performance, mixing originals and (sometimes) obscure covers from the Soul and Blues Past. The band behind singer Elsa Bekman was the perfect musical setting, efficient and fitting.

And that girl can sing! Her voice reminds you of Beth Hart, Janis Joplin or Amy Whinehouse, with a lot of emotion and deep groves. You believe what she sings! She has a natural gift to connect with the audience, and jumps into the crowd to make the people dance.

Check them out!
