Concert date rescheduled, due to the new strict lockdown rules

Due to the new, stricter lockdown rules, just ordered by our government, we’re not able to rehearse or give concerts for a few weeks. That’s why we rescheduled our livestream concert date from January the 31th to February the 28th. That’s a pity, but necessary in the battle against the virus. Luckily we’re still able to record, edit and mix our new, upcoming single of ‘Beyond the Tides’, partly online. On top of that we have weekly zoom sessions with the whole band.

Streamsonic and a new livestream concert

We start this year during the lockdown with two livestream events. The first is this Friday, January the 15th. A live version of our new ‘Beyond the tides’ song will be streamed on the Streamsonic Festival, a streaming festival as a part of the Eurosonic-Noorderslag festival. The entrance to Streamsonic is totally free of charge. Chabliz will be streamed between 10.36 PM CET and 10.41 PM CET (22.36 – 22.40), that’s only four minutes of your time, so be on time, otherwise the next band is already streaming…… That being said, we advise you to tune in earlier and stay longer afterwards, because there are also many other interesting bands streaming. Our ‘Beyond the tides’ song is a song of hope and fear. We subtitled the video with the lyrics.

On Sunday evening the 31th of January Chabliz will give another free, online livestream concert. This time somewhat shorter than you’re used to. With two world premieres with brand new songs, and an old song that we didn’t play live for almost ten years. We improved our performance again, this time we have coloured lights and three camera’s instead of just one! The concert starts on 9 PM CET (21.00). There’s a small chance that Holland will get a curfew too, just like several other European countries. If that will be the case, then our concert will start on 5 PM CET (17.00). We’ll let you know. Tune in on our YouTube channel, as always, to watch the livestream concert.

A happy and healthy 2021!

We wish you a happy and healthy 2021. We know that the first months of this year aren’t easy. That’s also the subject of our new song, Beyond the tides. This is a live recording, but we are recording the song in the studio now too. Expect a release asap, in or after the lockdown.

Our next livestream concert will be on Sunday evening, Januari 31, provided there won’t be any sharpening of the lockdown. You are able to watch our previous live concert of December 28 here, on our YouTube channel.

Despite the coronacrisis, Chabliz continued to work on new songs, recordings and concerts in the past year. That was hard during the first lockdown, when we couldn’t visit each other for more than two months. After the first lockdown we wrote, rehearsed, recorded and gave concerts again. In the summer we received a grant from the Music Production Fund of Sena. That was great news, it was many years ago that we received a grant for our music.

Thanks to your votes we reached position 366 and 400 with our songs Moon and Nightporter in the Snob 2000 again. Also this year the Snob 2000 2020 was broadcasted by Pinguin Radio.

On Spotify things were pretty okay this year. More people than in 2019 discovered our music there and listened to it; in 2020 there were 899 different listeners from 45 countries. Our music was streamed 4.400 times, for 320 hours. Our topsongs on Spotify are Nightporter, followed by Moon. But also Breakfast is relatively popular.

Our first real online livestream concert was in September. We broadcasted directly to Facebook with an old iPhone; the sound quality of that concert was quite bad. It was our first online concert ever, and we really had to get used to it! Our second livestream concert in October was already a little bit better, we had moved to our YouTube channel, but still the sound quality wasn’t perfect at all. In November we were invited by Funtime Live, which was very kind of them. This was the first time that we had a good sound online! Finally! In December we also improved our own gear and broadcasting skills and on December 28 we gave a very nice livestream concert in our own livingroom, with a great sound and nice light, but still with one camera. Our next concert on January 31 will be recorded by no less than three camera’s and we invested a bit in new and colorful lights. Hopefully we’ll ‘see’ you then!

First of all we wish you a happy Christmas, despite the lockdowns, the coronavirus, and everything.
Thanks to all your votes we made it again to the Snob 2000 radioplaylist this year. Thank you very much for that! 🙏 😊 We reached position 366 and 400 with our songs ‘Moon’ and ‘Nightporter.’ It’s possible to listen to the Snob 2000 on Pinguin Radio. There’s also a quite popular Snob 2000 2020 playlist on Spotify.

We will give our next free online livestream concert on Monday evening December the 28th, on 8 PM. The concert will be available on our YouTube channel and on our Facebook page. We hope to meet you there, online.

Livestream concerts and the Snob 2000

Last week we gave another online livestream concert, this time in the studio at Funtime Live. The sound of this concert was marvellous and the stage was beautiful too with its red curtains like in the black lodge of Twin Peaks.
Perhaps you voted last week for the Snob 2000. We’ll hear if we made it to this great yearly radioshow and playlist after December 18. We’ll tell you as soon as we know more! On December 28 we will give another online livestream livingroom concert, on YouTube again, in the evening. Every concert we improve our sound quality. The entrance is free again, hope to see you there! After Christmas we will make some new recordings of a few brand new songs too.

Quick Shots @ KMS plus a new online concert

Online concert with ‘Struinen in de Tuinen’

Our concert on Sunday Sept 6th will be online, due to the new coronarules. The council of Breda doesn’t allow us to play in a garden anymore…..The time has been changed to 4.15 PM. Originally we were booked on a gardenconcert at this nice outdoor gardenfestival, totally coronaproof we would say…. but nevertheless the council of Breda didn’t approve it. It would be our first live concert with a real audience since corona………… but now we will give an online concert instead. You are able to watch it live at our Facebookpage and on the Struinen in de Tuinen website. Hope to see you there!

Sena Music production fund grant

We just heard the great news that we will receive a grant from the Sena Music Production fund for a great deal of the costs that we will make to produce our next album! Not all our costs will be funded, but a large share of it. And that’s good news, since we didn’t receive any grant or subsidy for more than seventeen years. Needless to say that we are quite happy with this and we can’t wait to make this album during the next months.
