Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of attending the first concert of 'United Steels Of Europe' now comprising of stellar steel guitarists Nils Tuxen, Mark Horn, Lionel Wendling and the legendary Koos Biel - It was unbelievable! 30 years after their last concert Nils re-united his old band in preparation for Hans de Jong's big steel guitar birthday party in Oudewater on 10 June.
I really hope to also see them on steel guitar conventions some day, they are definitively ready for it.
Will post some videos of the show as soon as they are uploaded. _________________ 1974 Sho Bud "The Professional"; 1969 Fender Twin Reverb; Fender Hot Rod Deluxe; BJS Bar "John Hughey"; Goodrich Steel Driver III; Live Steel Strings

I got excited when Koos told me about this! Can't wait to see some video! _________________ Tommy Detamore
Alright! Congratulations! That's great to hear. There's nothing like steel events, steelers wandering around with that glazed-over look like they might have got bit by some kind of insect.
Maybe even a kerchief in the back pocket to wipe occasional sweat droplets from the brow after hearing or playing enjoyable steel. _________________ Don't Drop The Bar
