Home before Dark

Photographed without a flash this shows a somewhat blurry Henk, but also the video projection and the lighting of the stage.

The following pictures were taken during the 2000 Eindhoven concert, the first Nits gig in the Netherlands. The video projectors are still in use, but not as extensively as during Alankomaat.

Full stage

The final concert of 2000 took place in the Nijmegen theatre. The videoscreens have new positions (and new videos, of course), Leona is permanently on stage and the stage features a grand piano, used by Henk and Titia.

Theatre tour stage

In July 2000, the Nits recorded a TV special in Haarlem. Most guest musicians appearing on Wool were present, including Leona, the ZAPP! String Quartet, The Stylus Horns and Peter Meuris on percussions/vibraphone/marimba. The whole Wool CD was played twice that evening.

Wild Hair

In April 2002 there was a special meeting in the Paradiso in Amsterdam with pop musicians born between 1945 and 1955 called the babyboomers. They did a discussion about that time and what has become of them nowadays.


In the panel were The Lau of the Scene; Hans Waterman, who was in Solution and is now a writer of poparticles; Jerney Kaagman, she as the golden voice of Earth and Fire and nowadays director of Conamus; the well known Henk Hofstede; Jaap van Beusekom, who was a famous musician with Cuby and the Blizzards and nowadays director of the Dutch Popinstituut; Professor Boomkes and the discussionleader Geert.
