Spuds Music Monday #3: Bandoutfits and Partytime

June 12, 2017

Time for some more music news ( because we’re a band and all.. ), since last week was
about our sound and light tech.

But first things first, ever wondered where our awesome bandoutfits come from?
Our bandoutfits are made by Wilmy of Pagan ways. Go check out her shop, she’s present on most of the fantasy-festivals, and she’s amazing!

Back to the music! It’s gonna be hot the next couple of days, so there is no excuse not to come to the indoor Solution beach party in Hillegom this Saturday,
where we will play together with The Albert Mooneys. Let’s cool down with a beer ( or eight ), and some kickass music. Check out the event here

See you there!

Spud Music Monday #2: Behind the scenes

June 5, 2017

We started last week with the very first Spud Music Monday, where we announced our cooperation with Friendly Folk Records.

Today it’s time for Spud Music Monday #2: Behind the scenes – Sound & Light

It’s time to spotlight the guys behind the scenes who makes our show turn out great every time ( and we don’t mean the bartender, although we always value those guys )
We are, of course, talking about our sound and light technicians.
You don’t often see them, but they deserve a compliment.

First of all we have Loek Deen. He’s the guy in charge of drinking our beer.. We mean mixing our sound.
Next to being a musician himself ( guitar and bass player and vocalist) in the bands Alek Dronik and Kayamata. He always joins our party and we like it!

Next we have Robbert Hees, our amazing light tech. He normally works at Podium the Vorstin, and Fort33, but also joins us at the bigger shows.
He is an amazing light tech, knows how to work with our music and, maybe even more important, is a great guy who fits our crazy group.

Cheers!!

fantasiafest 2017

Back to where it all began..

May 31, 2017

Yes, friends! We’ve been asked once again to return to the place where we’ve played our very first gig and to which we have been returning every year since! FantasiaFest Leeft has been with us for so long it feels like returning home each and every year. 5 years ago the Royal Spuds where born, and since Fantasiafest is the place we started, we decided to celebrate our 5th birthday on Fantasiafest here!

To give you a nice warming up on how it all started, check this cute video!


We started out with a different bass player, and a guitarplayer less, but no worries, they joined within two months.
From here on.. well you know the story, lots of music, beer and parties!

To celebrate our birthday, we are giving away 5×2 weekend tickets to this badass festival! How can you win those tickets? Check out here: Facebook

Spud Music Monday #1: Friendly Folk Records

May 29, 2017

Ladies and gentleman. We did it. We made it. We’re in! We got ourselves signed to a brand spankin’ new recordlabel!

Our very own manager-lady Kathy Keller started Friendly Folk Records, in collaboration with Indieplant, and we’re (one of) the first band(s) to sign up.

So, what does that mean for the band? Not that much for the time being. But when we release our next album (it’s coming, but don’t ask us when, we’re working hard, but not too hard) we get the full benefits of a global release and some extra perks!

We’ll keep you up-to-date. But in the meantime: have a pint. We’ll have two and we’ll see you at the bar! Also, don’t forget to check out Friendly Folk Records. There’s loads of cool stuff happening there!

almost one hundred shows!

April 30, 2017

While we still feel like we are just started as band, we already played, partied and enjoyed almost 100 shows!
If you check the shows list you can find look back to the very first show we played at Fantasiafest, back in 2012!

We’ve come a long way since then! Do you think our 100th show should be a special party? Why not give us a heads-up on facebook?
And for our next goal: how about 500 shows? See you there!
