Rock and Roll!

On  September 21, 2017, quite suddenly, our lead singer Cees Bergman passed away. Cees was a tremendous musician, gifted with a beautiful voice - which only got better through time..
But above all, he was both a musical and a personal friend.
Both his family and we the bandmembers will miss him very much.
We gave Cees our solemn promise that we would carry on with Van Beukenstein. It wasn't easy, but we kept our promise. ROCK ON!
To all fans and friends of Van Beukenstein this quote:
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened!"
