Kate Bush Tribute 1

“Dreaming of Kate” is the brainchild of Haarlem (NL) based singer Maaike Breijman and Liverpool (UK) based drummer Paul Tsanos. They met at the Belfast Taste and Music Fest in 2010, where Maaike performed some Kate Bush songs on what was her first performance abroad. Ambitious Maaike was looking for more shows abroad and managed to kick off her career in Liverpool. When her busy Holland based musicians’ schedules couldn’t fit the rising demand abroad anymore, Maaike started working with a Liverpool based band instead, though adding Dutch backing vocalist Jerney Molenaar to her line up.

In 2013, the band toured across the UK and Holland with what was then known as “Wow – A Celebration of the Music and Artistry of Kate Bush”, and received standing ovations in all 14 theatres, among which the famous Shepherds Bush Empire (London) and Royal Theatre Carré (Amsterdam). Their audience included members of the Kate Bush fan club in both countries, and celebrities like Bonehead (Oasis), Vinny Peculiar, Johnny Robinson (X-Factor), and Del Palmer.

After splitting – due to various reasons – with the producer of “Wow” (who then got offered a production job for Kate’s own Before the Dawn show), the full band and lead singer Maaike decided to continue the project. With the conviction that performing Kate Bush’ music requires dedication to the look and performance, the band and Maaike developed Dreaming of Kate as a theatrical show. This means Maaike is not just a lead singer: she sings, dances, plays the piano and puts herself through a number of costumes changes. Maaike says: “The concept of the show can be a bit confusing. People expect us to be a regular band since we are a band. But with all the costume changes, dance routines and props we are more than that. On the other hand, we are not performing a musical or any particular story, which is what people expect when you say ‘costumes’ and ‘stage props’. We aim to perform, well… a fantasy, a dream.”

What others think of us“The moves, the dancing, the costumes, the facial expressions were all as you’d imagine how Kate would perform a concert as Maaike morphed into Kate. She was completely uninhibited, free and believable and the audience loved her.”
(Yvonne Delahaye – uktheatre.net)
“Yes, once again, Maaike succeeds in performing Kate’s music in a way that makes you see how Kate herself would do it. Even the fans who saw the show back in 1979 confirm that.”
(Kate Bush fanclub – The Netherlands)
“Breijman is quite a marvel. Capturing Bush in her dance moves, voice and look – sometimes it’s quite scary.”
(Jo-Anne Rowney -getbucks.co.uk)“When she tours again I order you to do your utmost to see her. Sell your Granny, send your kids to sweep chimneys, do whatever it takes just make sure you are there for Maaike’s next tour. That’s an order ok!”
(justwilliam1959 – wordpress)“’Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable. Ooh yeah you’re amazing, we think you’re incredible!’ Never have song lyrics seemed more apt than watching Maaike Breijman perform as Kate Bush”

It is no surprise that their energetic live performance has helped grow a loyal fan base throughout the Wirral and Liverpool music scene.

Their signature sound in captures the raw essence of Ska-Punk with hard hitting dual vocals, Skanking guitars and addictive brass that take their influence from bands such as Streetlight manifesto, Sublime, Rancid, Reel big fish and Capdown.

Since 2008 the band have played hundreds of shows, supporting bands such as The Skints. In 2013 the band settled as 7-piece that include Jay Peers Bow (Vox & Sax), Scott Hyland (Vox & Guitar), Jay Aldred (Trumpet), Chris Gartman (Guitar), Fal (Bass), Shaun Price (Keys) and Ben Green (Drums).

In the summer of 2013 they enjoyed performing at a string of festivals across the North West including Zanzifest, Fort Perch Rocks and headline slots at The Gathering, Port Life and Summer Jam festivals. They plan to release their first self funded EP in early 2014 accompanied by a video.
