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!
