Magic Event : Support Act : Bottles Of Love / Main Act : Johnny Hates Jazz @ Podium De Vorstin

Not Amsterdam or Rotterdam, Hilversum brings Johnny Hates Jazz back in Holland. Last friday Podium De Vorstin was the Magic Music place.

400 tickets where sold at the time that support act Bottles Of Love impressed at 20:30 with their 35 minutes of Poprock, starts with “Baby You’re All That I Want” that made me think “is this not too much Rock for JHJ-fans?”. I think it was the full package of great songs and a great performance with singer Willem Jonker as a fantastic humoristic presenter that makes the almost empty room into a party place.

They did all their Singles from the first “Get These Men Out Of Here” til the last “Keep Your Head Up”, a great cover of “Boys Of Summer” (Don Henley) and the unknown song “25”.

For all the people that enters the evening around 9 PM, you have really really missed something (check http://www.bottlesoflove.com for a second chance) that is going to be huge and listen to their Album “Hush” for more!

After an 11 minute break (Mike Nocito explains after the show: we were well prepared during the soundcheck), Clark Datchler, Mike Nocito and their band came on stage to make the crowd go wild with their “Heart Of Gold”.

You felt the guys love to perform and the audience (which seems to be much more than 400 in the meanwhile) where dancing and singing like we are still living in the eighties with lots of tracks of the first Album “Turn Back The Clock” (“Shattered Dreams”, “Heart Of Gold”, “Turn Back The Clock”, “Don’t Say It’s Love”, “I Don’t Wanna Be A Hero”, “Listen”, “Don’t Let It End This Way” and “Me And My Foolish Heart”), even with the tracks “You Belong To You”, “Man With No Name” and the Singles “Magnetized” and “Lighthouse” of the Album “Magnetized”.

Clark Datchler released some Solo material, like for instance the Album “Fishing For Souls” (1992), he explains that the song of that Album “Broken Spirit” was suppossed to be a Johnny Hates Jazz Single and that is the reason why it is on the setlist during JHJ-concerts.

Recently Chris Cornell (Soundgarden & Audioslave) passed away and Clark talks about all those big names, but give a tribute to Maurice White .This is Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September”.

Clark Datchler has lived in Amsterdam for many years ago and did the concert for “mijn mooie Nederlanders” (my beautiful dutchies) in his dutch designed bonding (not bondage!) Scotch & Soda jacket. Learned dutch with an old-fashioned book and is familar with the Dutch singers “Lee Towers” and “Henk Wijngaard”. This is Clark his cover of Wijngaard his Trucksong “Met De Vlam In De Pijp”.

After the concert there was a meet and greet with Mike & Clark (NOT for 250 euro like other UK acts ;-)) and in case you think the fans waited for an hour…. they only waits a minute for their signature, talk or KODAK-moment!

I really recommend Johnny Hates Jazz and gladly this was not their final concert. Check them out at http://johnnyhatesjazz.com/ for the tourlist including Villa Marina, Isle Of Man and festivals like Mello Festival, Lytham Festival and 80s VS 90s.
