On Saturday, July 17 tinyMusic organizes a summer Saturday night with Belgian duo Boston Tea Party, singer-guitarist Gerhardt Heusinkveld and singer/songwriter Mark Ritsema.

tinyMusic is a new initiative that brings musicians and audience closer together. tinyMusic emphasizes on the overall experience of a concert. As an artist, you want the audience to listen to the songs. As a concert goer you want to hear new music, while having a pleasant evening. A chat with the artists and fellow concert goers afterwards, is in large concerts often unthinkable. tinyMusic creates an intimate and unique setting where you’re able to listen to live music in a relaxed and casual way. This tiny music concerts take place at special locations, such as in a living room, an attic, in the hold of a ship or even out in the street, makes the concept even more special.

Boston Tea Party combines the rebellious music of the Collins Kids, a rockabilly band from the 50s with the zany pop songs of an eccentric company as Danielson Famile. On their debut Trouble Little Kids there are great and catchy songs which have  been established with bare minimum resources. You can hardly imagine that the eleven songs were recorded in the studio of dEUS, with Tim Vanhamel (Millionaire / Eagles of Death Metal) as a producer.

Gerhardt Heusinkveld provides an intimate solo performance. The singer-guitarist is known for Skinnerbox and Beans and Fatback.

After the very successful tinyMusic concert in the belly of the coaster De Zwerver, Mark Ritsema closes the evening with an exclusive soloset. In the 80s Ritsema was the frontman of the legendary cult band Spasmodique. He also was succesful in the 90s with Cobraz. Nowadays he’s in Raskolnikov, but he also performs solo as Nightporter, like on this tinyMusic concert

The garden will be open for the public at 7.30 pm. The first concert will start at 8 pm, the last concert will last until about 10pm.
