A brief history

I was 14 when I picked up a guitar for the first time. My first band was called The Yankees, we played songs from The Shadows, Santana. The second band was Indigo, we played orginals and some covers from Rainbow, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Supertramp, Kansas.

I did went to the academie music school of Genk, where I learned classical music, my teacher was: Matteux Vanhees. At that time, we had a fusion band called Icaros, we played songs from The Yellowjackets, Chick Corea, Scott Henderson, Frank Gambale, Chick Corea, Larry Carlton, Robben Ford and Earl Klugh.

Then I did Jazz Studio for 4 years, a private school in Jazz in Antwerp. In the mean time, I played with many coverbands in The Nederlands.

After that I joined a band that was called The Golden Bis Band, this was a band, that worked with international artist The Supremes, The Three Degrees, Gloria Gaynor, The Gibson Brothers, Johnny Logan and many others.

I toured with an artist called Helmut Lotti, with his Symphonic Orchestra, we did The States, South Africa, Australia, Germany, The Nederlands, Belgium and Scandinavia. I worked 11 years with this band.

In 2005 I started giving lessons in Academie Genk and Academie Tongeren, until now.
