Although it is somewhere in the previous decade I think I visited Katwijk for a pop show last. Cracker, travelling in a dreamliner the size bands filling stadiums travel in, filled everything in front of De Schuit. There's a whole new stage nowadays. Quite nice for a village the size of Katwijk.
The Maureens played here as part of a festival called Warm Winter Fest. A, quite smelly, oil drum fire provided the heat on a real winter evening. Three acoustic shows were played in the bar area of which I saw the final one. New songs and old favourites were played. An acoustic guitar, one electric and only small percussive instruments. Three voices looking for every harmony possible within a tune and finding them, with such ease.

The Maureens mach 3 is a band to go and see for everyone who likes perfect pop music. The Beatles influenced, with U.S. elements like the already mentioned The Jayhawks thrown in for good measure and with Dutch pop from the 60s onwards to top things off. Together with Maggie Brown this is my favourite Dutch pop band.
