Hocus Pocus, it's time for Focus again! The legendary progressive rock band from the low countries is fifty years young and is still as exciting and unparalleled. They are also celebrating this wonderful anniversary at Neushoorn, with a special show in which classics and favourites pass in review in two long sets.
For five decades, the band has managed to intrigue with their strange, but oh-so-tasteful mix of symphonic rock, folk and fusion. With the heavenly yet manic Hammond organs of Thijs van Leer and the singing yet ripping guitars of Jan Akkerman - now Menno Gootjes - the band managed to manifest itself in the early 1970s as one of the most successful export products of Dutch pop music – and not only because of their instrumental hits "Hocus Pocus", "House of the King" and "Sylvia". To this day, the band tirelessly tours the world and Van Leer is still yodeling and whistling behind the organ. Veteran Pierre van der Linden also still has his seat behind the drums. Meanwhile guitarist Menno Gootjes and bassist Udo Pannekeet are fixtures and the band released another great album last year. This year they are celebrating fifty years of crazy, beautiful and intriguing progressive rock with two long sets full of classics and favourites at Neushoorn.
