Wide view of Waterland
Rembrandt van Rijn has sketched the tower of Ransdorp several times. The large tower is a design by Jan Poyt and dates back to the early sixteenth century. This tower recalls the flourishing shipping industry and trade that the village characterized especially in the fifteenth century. On the roof of the tower you have a beautiful panoramic view of Waterland, a typical Dutch polder landscape.

The members of the band are: Jan, Richard, Jorrit, Ron and Guus. The repertoire consists of their own Dutch repertoire. It’s always a party with these guys.
