Hello guys of Arena,
thanks to a colleague of mine, I got to know your music...and it was a real hit, from day 1.
Listening to the albums The visitor, Immortal?, contagion and Peppers' host opened another dimension in my world of music.
As a younger man/boy I was open for all kinds of music...from Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd, Genisis to U2...even disco and other kinds of dancemusic....I enjoy it all, as long as it doesn't get too fanatic/hard.
Through the years though, getting older& married with children and stuff...I lost feeling with music in general. The only band that I kept on following is U2, because they keep on surprising me in changing of style.
Anyway, getting to know your music caused a complete deadlock on other music => I have to force myself to listen to other music or even the radio.
Watching you guys play in Ittervoort was only confirming to me that you guys are on top of the world for me!
Now, this got me thinking about something...September 12th, in ICC Gent/Belgium, we have a 2 young artists that will be released too the press & other media. As the costs are extremely high to get this show on the road, they have been searching for sponsors...
I started thinking in another way...instead of looking for sponsors, maybe we should involve another band and look at things in another perspective.
The idea: let's say these 2 young artists do their performance first and that a band like Arena has the main gig. Everything (sound, lights,...) is taken care of by the organizing party. Young artists can play before a greater audience and the media...and than also arena can enjoy the presence of the media. Add the fact that ICC is a place for +-1500 people, which means +-4 times the crowd of Ittervoort...According to my limited braincapacity, this is a win-win-win situation! 2 happy young artists, a filled concerthall for ARENA and me being incredibly happy to see you guys perform again. Might be even a good opportunity to release some new songs...as you told you are working on!
Next step: if you guys are interested to play...please contact me on "email@example.com
". Because I need to get in contact with the people who organize this evening. Meanwhile, to make you curious about 1 of the artists "Rosie Pearl", you can have a look on "my space".
