The latest album by Hans Theessink – a great live record called “65 Birthday Bash” – is out now.
Many stars and friends hit the stage with the blues virtuoso from the Netherlands on that night in Vienna to celebrate his 65th birthday. Theessink – who just won’t stop rocking – was joined by Austrian poet Ernst Molden, Austrian rock legend Willi Resetarits and Denmark’s blues star Knud Moller and others.
The versatile musicians teamed up to perform audience favourites such as “Call Me” and “No Expectations”, a Rolling Stones song recorded by Theessink already some years ago for a Jedermann compilation album.
Theessink remains as active as ever. “Delta Time” and “Wishing Well” are just two of the many excellent albums he released recently. The Vienna-based singer-songwriter’s tour continues as well. Theessink – who performed at some of the biggest music festivals in the world over the past decades – will rock the Ö1 stage at this year’s Donauinselfest in Vienna on 27 June before performing in Klagenfurt (2 July) and Wels (4 July) next month.
However, Theessink’s tour schedule does not only feature shows in Austria. Seventeen concerts are set to take place in the UK in September – including performances in Edinburgh, Liverpool and York. For more information, visit http://www.theessink.com
