Steenhoven, Niels van der (Band)
Demo/semi official album from Niels van der Steenhoven Band. Inlay card is signed by Niels van der Steenhoven.

The album contains five fusion/jazzrock songs written by Steenhoven.

In April 2006 Niels received a phone call from Bobby Jacobs (bass player of Focus) with the question if he was interested in doing an audition for Focus. They were looking for a new guitar player and Bobby thought Niels might fit in.

After doing the audition on the 1st of May 2006 he didn’t hear anything for a while. Then suddenly he got a call from the manager. If Niels is interested in doing 2 shows with the band, just to see if it works. So he did two shows with Focus. One show in Norway (Lillehammer Classic Rock festival) with bands like 10CC and Procul Harem and a festival in The Hague called ‘Kaderock’.

A few days after the Kaderock show the phone rang and it was Thijs van Leer telling Niels he was hired.



Tracks: Sending roses
Like magic
Getting it all together
Heading to Vegas
I remember you
