Boogie and blues piano talent Dirk Jan Vennik has been making an effort to gain as much experience as possible and it looks like he's pulling it off. At the young age of fifteen he succeeded in making such an impression on Junior Wells that he was allowed to play along for the complete duration of a concert. Vennik visited many a blues festival and often managed to convince artists to invite him on stage as a guest soloist during their shows. The pianist and his Boogie & Blues Quartet rely on pieces with a cheerful, rhythmical sub-harmonic. Clearly, Vennik has developed his own style. The CD Messin with the Boogie was released a few years back.
