POP CLASSICS IN YOUR MOTHER TONGUE!
Journalist/singer/television maker Mylène de la Haye, her favourite ex Jan Enklaar (mouth organ player) and Go Go dancer Chrisje present a festive repertoire of pop classics from their youth, translated by Mylène. A super act to get your party going. Keywords: danceable, naughty, exciting, not pretentious.
The act is a feast of recognition, but original. Mylène sings her own translations of seventies and eighties songs and is assisted by mouth organ virtuoso Jan Enklaar and crowd pleaser and go-go dancer Chrisje (who holds up text boards so that people can sing along, see repertoire list). Because Mylène also plays the air guitar very well, you get the feeling that you are watching a complete band. It is also possible to organize an air guitar battle. This trio is very suitable as a living room act (also if you have annoying neighbours, because they can play softly) but they can also turn a pub or party upside down. Key words: party, humor, not pretentious, accessible and with lots of interaction. Want to put someone in the spotlight? For a small fee, journalist Mylène will write a custom text on an existing song for him or her. Or you can (if it's a he) make him the main subject of the song Bak Steen ('as square as he is, there's no one like him'), a translation of Brick House by the Commodores. Success assured.

Last Sunday we attended our first musical performance of the year and what a performance, in intimate company a living room concert by Mylene and Jan. It was a pleasure to listen to the beautiful translations of well-known songs, the singing of Mylene, accompanied by Jan on the harmonica, moved us sometimes, but not only that, we also had to laugh about the humorous approach of some songs, we could also dance together, that was a long time ago! Really great, an afternoon full of fun, thank you Mylene and Jan!

If you're ready for an evening of unadulterated fun entertainment, invite Myléne de la Haye and her 'Jan'. Because this duo just comes to your house and blows the roof off in a very original way. Tasty recognizable blues and disco songs in a Dutch jacket which causes a lot of hilarity and funny moments. I think that nobody could translate the song 'Doctor Long John' of Bette Midler as well as the still as cheeky Mrs de la Haye. Did she used to come across as a rebel, count on it that she hasn't lost those traits and still shapes her performance just as directly. Combine this with her brave, raw voice, her sometimes funny then sexy appearance and the mouth organ solos of Jan and you're guaranteed a great performance for your friends. The kind of evening that will last for some time to come. I had a great time

I write this in English because I'm South African but I understand Dutch, I just can't write it properly. I absolutely loved how the English hits were translated into Dutch. Not only is Mylene a wonderful singer but their Performance is so enjoyable to watch , They included the audience to sing with them and even dance! A lot of thought and effort has gone into their performance- Using boards and props for the audience to sing along and even customs changes throughout the act . I could have watched them sing for hours and still be entertained. Mylene and Jan definitely know how to work up a crowd both extremely talented performers. A wonderful atmosphere

Not only this is just a song concert - this is a real show! It will make you laugh, cry, and dance, depending on the song. Jan's back vocal and harmonica make the whole show very personal and special - their own way to look at the songs they love and make their friends and other people understand, what these songs mean to them. Long story short - if you need some more happiness and freedom in your life - this is definitely a way of decently and educated spend your time with a glass of wine and good music around

Last week I was allowed to attend a living room concert by Mylene and Jan. Together with go-go dancer Chrisje they gave a great performance. Close, humour, emotion, passion and love, interwoven in this intimate concert. Mylene translated beautiful songs into Dutch and brings them to the top again with her unique sound. And nobody plays Air Guitar as convincingly as Mylène!

Thank you so much for letting me be part of your wonderful performance. The translations are great, cosy, cheerful and sometimes a bit naughty. Thank you for the wonderful afternoon that I was able to spend with my niece Roelien.

Whirling, exciting, touching and sometimes a bit Bette Midler-like naughty and spicy. A great show by the famous singer Mylene de la Haye and her regular accompanist Jan on harmonica. All well-known songs from the seventies. Mylene beautifully provided them with surprising Dutch lyrics. At the performance I was at, people couldn't get enough of it. And rightly so. Wonderful evening.

Went to a tryout yesterday. Delightful. Beautiful songs and witty idiocy, all together. Really worthwhile. Hits translated into Dutch, by Mylène herself.Suitable for small performances at people's homes or the longer version in theatres. Jan and Mylène sing and make music together, highly recommended, I have shed some tears but also laughed my ass off...

Last week saturday we had the opportunity to attend a great performance by Mylene and Jan! Famous, swinging, songs from the 70's & 80's translated to Dutch; sometimes hilarious, sometimes beautiful and sensitive lyrics. Singing along, supported with song-signs by a funny assistant, made the party feeling complete! The beautiful voice of Mylene and the accompaniment of Jan with vocals and mouth organ made for a musical performance that belongs on a private party, a company party, gay bar and certainly on a festival like the Parade. Lovely at a party, also as a warm-up and to get in the mood during a night full of dancing, because during the performance it's hard to sit still and not to move your legs
