that Sunday afternoon in my hometown...

On Sunday, December 10, the Savelberg Monastery in Heerlen was filled with many lovely people. People who wanted to support us in our trip to the EBC in Portugal in April 2024. We are so grateful, it was a fantastic afternoon! We enjoyed the music together and the money pot was generously filled. This financial support will help us make the trip to Braga possible and have a great time here during the EBC, where a new adventure is waiting for us!

yes!!! We won!!!

Last Sunday we were in the final of the DBC, this time as a band.
And we won!
We are so proud, grateful and full of energy to start our new adventure... Great performances are coming up and we are going to participate in the EBC  in April 2024.

Again in the Final of the DBC

In 2019 I won the DBC and went to Memphis as a solo artist to participate in the International Blues Challenge…
So why again?
People see me mainly as a solo artist, but I also have a beautiful band that must be heard and seen!
I am very proud of that and would like to share this with you, and my son really wanted it ;)
So... “Let's bring the blues to the next generation!”

We are looking forward to it and are going to put together a top set, as the “Robbert Duijf band” we are going to give a great show!
Hope to see you there to support us...

Live @ Nieuwe Nor

Album release on vynil,
January 30th 2021 


So this is my story…

Usually i record and perform as a solo artist, but not this time.

This time i wanted to try something different. So in the beginning of 2020 i jumped into the Husky Studio.

Since i was just a little kid i wanted to make a record like this, a record that makes him shiver.

But the world slowed down and we ended up in a lockdown.

This gave me some extra time, time to think again.

My mind was getting clearer and decisions were made. I didn’t regret even one of them, “Stick to the plan, that’s what the old man said!”

Finally everything was falling into place.

This was not just going to be a solo album, as i also had the honour of working with some really talented musicians.

The fun we had together made me realise, that music makes me feel alive.

So here it is.


My trip to memphis, february 10th 2020

2020 IBC Semifinalist Badge-SoloDuo

The International Blues Challenge 2020 on Bealestreet, Memphis was great!  

Being allowed to do 4 shows in the mecca of the blues and then of the 90 registered duo/solists worldwide finishing at the last 20 in the semifinals was fantastic.  Club 152, Pig on Beale and Jerry Lee Lewis’ were the places where I played. The atmosphere was fantastic...dedicated audience, great musicians and a lot of new meetings.

At Pig on Beale I also met Doug macLeod again, during an inspiring workshop ... Afterwards we had a nice chat about beer and in the evening, I was greatly surprised by his presence at my show.  So grateful!!!

I did an interview with Isaac Ericksen for his docu about the Blues outside America, I am very curious about the result.

Had a nice ride down to the Crossroads to feel the spirit of Robert Johnson. Also visited the SUN studio, Blues Hall of Fame, STAX and Graceland.  

Wow, what an experience...So thanks a million everybody...for your support, to make my dream come true !!!
