  • 09-04-12 Congrats to "The Nieuwe Stempel"

    Last friday night we rocked the finals of Wraak van Salland @Leerelampe. It was a cool stage with lot's of smoke'n'lighting and we rocked quite "de pan uit!", but the hip-rock-hoppers "The Nieuwe Stempel" showed us how to command the crowd.
    The Nieuwe Stempel won these finals and some nice gigs (Stöppelhaene, Pedro Pico Pop, de Doorbraak, Burgerpop) they deserved it.
    We think we left a good impression ourselves too, because we did get some good response and mabey some extra shows...
    Thanks to the bands, fraizle.com, and the organisation of Wraak van Salland we had a blast!

  • 17-03-12 Wraak van salland, To the finals!!

    We didn't thought we would become the winner of the night @Wraak_van_salland. But we won!!
    We rocked our harts out but thought, maybe it was a little bit too much and too loud for the people from Heetten and the other bands played very good. Well the jury seemed to like our songs and energy on stage. So we got a bottle of champaign and a ticket to the finals!!

    We would like to thank the jury, the organization and the bar for having us. We would also like to thank the other bands for giving us a good night!!

    6th of April (put it in your callendar) we will play at "De Leeren Lampe" in Raalte with 3 other bands.

    Hope to see you at our show!

    Cheers!

  • 09-03-12 Yesterday @IJsselhallen was a blast!

    Damn.. Wish we were student's again. Party till your drop!! :D
    The Windesheim student's gave us a warm hart while partying at our show.
    Some students were such awesome dancers, we gave them a free MM T-shirt!

    Thanks to the Lustrum Studentenfeest people for having us and also thanks to Niek van der Sprong, Culturele producties for taking care of us and giving us extra beer.

    Here some on stage pictures made by Kees Muizelaar.

    Cheers!

  • 15-02-12 Wraak van salland, To the next round!!

    Last week at Friday we rocked our asses off in "cafe de Schoenmaker" at Luttenberg. It was Willem Jan his first gig and he showed the crowed how it's done!
    Each visitor could buy one vote to support his favorite band of the night. At the end the collected money was the price for the winning band. All bands brought lot's of friends and good music so it was a close finish in the voting counts. We were pleasantly surprised to hear we had the most votes.
    It seemed that we made some good fans who were willing to vote on us and especially Harry (a regular visitor of cafe de Schoenmaker) and the bar owner himself were big fans of our show, because they spend some good money to let other people vote for us!!
    And they just saw us playing for their first time!!

    We also had lots of other positive feedback from the crowd and we want to say thanks to all the people who have come to see us, voted for us and told us how much they liked our show.
    Everybody who wanted to buy our cd's wich we stupitly didn't bring with us can send us an e-mail at info@midnightmenace.nl and we will send you the cd by post mail.
    Also a big thanks to the orginasation and the guys who shot some video footage of the show. You can watch it right below this post.
    Hope to see you all soon in the next round at "De Wraak van Salland" (when and were will be announced soon). Or somewhere else..
