Although I was familiar with Mangrove, as I had reviewed their second release 'Touch Wood', I did not really know the band. But when I met keyboardplayer Chris Jonker at a special broadcast at Sympho Shop, at 10-10-10. We had a chat and he liked my work for Live Prog. One thing led to another and I was invited to visit their rehearsal place for an interview.
So I drove up to the place to meet the band and do a nice interview with them. A very great afternoon filled with fun, good music and a few suprises.
