I am Bobby van Daalen, from Amsterdam.
“I was born in 1972 in the south of Holland in a place called Vlissingen. It’s a little rock n roll town where I heard great blues artists like Buddy Guy and Junior Wells playing when I was about 12 years old. I always wanted to be a guitar player.”

Moving to Amsterdam I played in several bands like Send by Post (Threesome), Moonpalace (MissAntartica), 50lux (Please mrs Henry), Goudblad (Frozen Bread), Amsterdam Bluegrass (with Thorne Anderson and Joram Salig) and some cover country bands as pedal steel player

Travelling the World I always like to bring an instrument and play with different people and trying to learn new styles or approaches. I visited Curaçao (ukulele! the place to be there is the Cockroach Bar, where musicians assemble to play Cuban Music, great place where the Cockroaches even fly and dance around!), Asheville (dobro! NC,USA, every bar is almost nice to play and of course busking on the street, I liked Jack of The Woods very much, and playing with my friend Thorne, try drink the Truth over there!), Gili Trawangang (guitar!, Lombok, Indonesie). Asheville is a great place to play music and hope to visit soon again. In Gilli almost everybody played guitar, I loved it!
Next project I like to visit Mali and play with musicians over there and I would love to play at least once with the one and only Neil Young.
