The first act is known on Labtones as Mica's Mess, but tonight she performs alone under her real name Mieke van Veen. She became a member of the Labtones network quite recently, but immediately got attention from Labtones listeners. She accompanies herself on acoustic guitar while the audience enjoys her beautiful voice and intimate songs.

Next up was the band Duncan Idaho. Last year, they also performed on Labtones, but Labtones had good reasons to invite them again: they released their second album, became Labtones Artist of the Month and performed as support for Manic Street Preachers. All in the course of a couple of months! And like last time, the band played an excellent set with material from their most recent full-length; catchy indie tunes with great guitar licks and vocal harmonies.

The first act of the night was This is Bridget. This female singer/songwriter started out singing in rock bands, but later decided to follow the singer/songwriter route. Since half a year she performs together with Oscar Poppe on upright bass, who is also present tonight. The two musicians clearly enjoy playing together and the audience clearly enjoys the intimite folk songs of this duo.

Next on stage was another duo: Organ Tonation. This act is fronted by Frank Montis, known on Labtones with his band DelMontis. Organ Tonation mainly plays songs from the album 'Straightforward Fascination' by DelMontis, but in a different setting: Frank is playing the Hammond instead of the Rhodes, and he is only accompanied by a drummer. Together they treat the audience with jazzy versions of the DelMontis songs, played with amazing musicianship.

The night is closed by a set of the international act Desperados BFDM (Brother From Different Mothers). These guys certainly know how to start a party!  With seven (!) musicians on stage, including two percussionists, they play a mix of latin, funk, hiphop, pop and reggae. Sometimes rapper ? takes the lead and at other times they all sing together with nice harmonies. When they play their single 'Tequila con limon', the Labtones crew gives the people in the audience free shots of tequila. This was the perfect closer of a perfect night!

The next edition of Labtones Live will be held on April 28, 2012.

The second Labtones Live! of 2012 took place on Saturday, February 25 in Merz (Dordrecht, The Netherlands). This night the program was rather diverse, with two singer/songwriters and one rock band! The first act on stage was LogOut from Greece. He was sitting behind a collection of pedals, with which he did all sorts of creative things, like looping his voice and guitar. He even played keys on his iPod! But most of all, the music was beautiful and his voice was incredible.

The second performer, Johan Borger, took a lot less equipment on stage: a guitar and a bar stool. It is all you need for the intimate americana / folk music he plays. The music often reminded of the acoustic songs of Ryan Adams, with beautiful melodies.

The final act was Nothing Ultra. And it was quite a different one from the other two. These guys have a history in various bands and decided to form a band together that is all about rock music. The band played steady rock songs, with lots of creativeness going on. Think Foo Fighters, but also with a unique touch to it. And singer Gerben has an amazing voice!
