An interview with Jan
8 March 2015

BN De Stem had a nice interview (our own copy here) with Jan, our hero on dobro and pedal steel and banjo and accordeon and trumpet and mandoline and much more. He talks about how he grew up in the small town of Ulvenhout, about his love for all stringed instruments and especially the dobro and about his shows with comedy legend Freek de Jonge. And we get to know if he and Sonja will ever get married.

The pictures were taken in Ulvenhout by Ron Magielse.

Ways And Needs Of A Night Horse released today
16 February 2015

It's official, we have a new album. Release date: today! We're very happy with the response we got up to now. So, with pride, we present some press quotes below, in Dutch, English and German. Maybe, after reading them, you might consider to visit our store? Or read all the reviews on our Press page.

Ways And Needs Of A Night Horse press quotes

"We waren erop de redactie kapot van dit nummer, trouwens de hele plaat mag er wezen"
Jan Donkers on Gonzo's return, KX Radio

"een album van internationale allure dat ze overal op de wereld mogen horen."
Heaven (pdf)

"een slag in het gezicht met een fluwelen behandschoende vuist"
RifRaf (pdf)

"Point Quiet macht Musik, die traumhafte Schatten wirft und wo Schatten sind, ist auch Licht"

"We hopen dan ook van harte dat het album “Ways And Needs Of A Night Horse” van deze groep op de welverdiende erkenning van vele liefhebbers van uitstekende muziek zal mogen rekenen"

"A bit of Tex Mex by using trumpet, trombone and accordion, a nod to Ennio Morricone in the intro of Trembling Star, old school country slide guitar in The Man I Once Was, this is a band wearing their influences up front."
Here Comes The Flood

3voor12 Den Haag
4 February 2015

3voor12 Den Haag selected us as their favourite band for this month. This means you can see and hear us a lot in the Den Haag area, this February.

  • Monday next week, the 9th, we'll be playing and talking in Stork On Air on Den Haag FM
  • On Wednesday the 25th we'll play in De Zwarte Ruiter
  • And on Saturday the 28th there will be a video impression on Den Haag TV

And don't forget there's also our gig in De Regentenkamer on Sunday the 22nd, in the afternoon.

Before we start our Den Haag tour, we'll be playing in Amsterdam first. Tomorrow, in Dokhuis Galerie

20 January 2015

We've updated our Lyrics page, with all the words from all the songs on our forthcoming album Ways And Needs Of A Night Horse. To give you an idea of what's going on in the mind of our lead poet and singer Pascal, here's one of them.


I happen to find vanishing ghosts
In the waves licking the shores through eternity
I could never fight that most tender love
That keeps hiding inside tales rooted deep in honesty

The day seems to fade, and I feel a bit strange
Should I see your face again, I just wouldn't hide anymore

Later the Sun will rise, the break of dawn
Will cut the bones of stranger dreams floating on our songs
The streets were empty last night, only the shadows
Of long-gone lovers were seen dancing, or so I've been told

The day seems to fade, and I feel a bit strange
Should I see your face again, I just wouldn't hide anymore
