Bade is a new band. This was only its second gig and that showed here and there. Some charming miscommunication or starting a song when others were not ready. It did not take anything away from the charm of the show itself. After a hesitating start, the band shook of its restraints, rocked in all the right places, held back when appropriate.

The music went a bit up and down. (All was totally new, remember.) Not all was to my personal taste, especially the more poppy songs. Others were extremely good. A hard rocking song and one I remember as 'Miracle wave', I really liked. But above that all, I truly enjoyed Bart van Liemt's voice. This guy can sing and has different voices in him. He can sing higher, low and with different textures. And that is an element which is at the basis of all good rock and pop singers. On the whole Bade has to gel more, but has set a decisive step to becoming a band: songs of interest are presented.
