“One of the best performances at Sziget 2014. It was truly magical what you did on stage I will for sure remember!
Thank you so much Jeroen!!!” Ms. Fruzsina Szép Programme director Sziget Festival
“At Open Up festival I met Jeroen Marcelis, where I played with Fantuzzi, and his songs had an immediate impact on me. Especially the song Starchild touched me deeply. Rarely or never do I experience that after having been a professional musician for 25 years, but I was moved to tears by the beautiful composition, the tasteful guitar playing and the delicate singing. Jeroen has a natural feel to his performance. That’s something you can’t learn as far as I’m concerned. No unnecessary frills or vocal tricks, simply straight into your ears and heart, enriched with beautiful and honest personal anecdotes. I hope his cd will be released soon to enable everyone to enjoy this great music. Go check this guy out, highly recommended as far as I’m concerned.” Iwan de Reus, Musician / visitor Open Up 2016
