VABFJS an acronym for Veense Acoustic Blues Folk and Jazz Society. A small group of people dedicated to bringing Free Live Music to people. The focus is Acoustic or slightly amplified sessions. Not that we shun electric and amplified music but the emphasis is mainly acoustic.
Born from necessity to offer a stage to, young, start-up, bands and performers who need to gain experience with performing in public. By putting new artists and bands on stage with experienced musicians and performers we hope the new performers gain experience and feel comfortable performing.
We provide the PA system for the performers, easing the threshold, Robert’s Pub provides the Stage. We have a very small budget to offer traveling expenses to performers who travel to Veenendaal. In these trying times we would like to offer more but without sponsoring it’s not possible at the moment.
Sponsors are certainly welcome, however, just to be clear, all proceeds go to the performers and not to the organization.
