A bit more than a year ago, I ran into 'Young' guitarist Jelle Wunderink via Youtube. I was already interested in young blues talent for some years. You know how it goes with musicians, you look and listen to them, and after a short time you have seen and heard if someone can play, someone can play good, or if someone has 'it'.
The latter was in the case of Jelle; I saw and heard it immediately, he has got it. In that time I was organising monthly jamsessions in Sittard for which I invited Jelle. A week later, there he stood after a ride of 230 kilometers, happy and smiling and ready to perform. That afternoon he played a fat Texas blues out of his Strat, the kind which put a smile on my face as a blues lover.
We stayed in touch and some months later I came in touch with Stijn and Lars Middelhuis via a musician site. Also young guys, very above averaged bass and drum player who were looking for a guitar player. Since they came from the east of the country, I immediately thought of Jelle. Well, 'snelle Jelle' saw his burning opportunity and joined them for a jam session. They jammed and jammed, and you know how it goes with musicians, you start making plans.

The result: NO KING. A short summery: PERFECT Dutch young blues musicians who produce a solid fat groove and who can interest the listener. Blues in the Netherlands has a future, the name: NO KING.

Bookers: take it from me, book them now, in that case you could say that you were one of the first.

"Young supertalent! His own sound, own feel, friendly. Future for the Dutch Bluesrock? I can only hope that his talent will be recognized. It must work with the right people around him and good songs. Go Jelle!"
