2 (duo) performers
Indoor and outdoor
Joyride stands for the perfect live music for your wedding or company party.
With what kind of line-up does Duo Joyride play ?
We are an all-round duo with the singer/guitarist René Bes and the singer Marthy Karsten or with the singer/guitarist René Bes and the singer Linda Meester. Duo Joyride can also be booked as a trio or a band with 4 or 5 persons. Because of our sophisticated equipment and the preliminary work in our own studio, you will get to hear a complete big band with a very comfortable sound in every line-up with which Joyride performs.
What makes Duo Joyride different from other duos ?
Not only do we have two vocalists (one singer and one female singer), but we also have the ability to extend our performances with unique, exciting and interactive show tunes. Besides the fact that your wishes are always central to Duo Joyride, our enthusiastic appearance is also typical.
What kind of repertoire does Duo Joyride play ?
We have an extensive repertoire of English and Dutch songs through the years and in many genres. So say from young to old and so there is something for everyone. We provide if you want during our short breaks the music itself through a software DJ system. In this system are almost 10,000 songs in every genre imaginable. So even our short breaks can be filled to your liking. Songs that you would like to hear and which are not in our own repertoire, we can through this system in our breaks possibly play for you.
How does Duo Joyride plan the performances ?
For instance for 5 hour gigs we will bring 4 sets of about 45 minutes with small breaks. This is however an indication! We are not watching our watches while we are performing and we do not have fixed sets with fixed numbers. We play completely in service of the success of your party. And if this means that, for example, with a nice full dance floor, a set should last a little longer, we will certainly not fail to do so. Every party is different and requires its own approach and repertoire. Every performance is a new challenge for us, which we will take up to the fullest. In short: Duo Joyride is a very flexible all-round duo and always responds to the situation on the spot
If you choose for an addition of our unique, sparkling and interactive show numbers, the sets in which we bring these show numbers will also last approximately 45 minutes.
Does Duo Joyride have their own equipment ?
We have our own professional sound system which is suitable for parties up to 250 people. We also have our own stage lighting, so the fun colors are not missing either. In addition we use roll-up displays to visually enliven the stage or the performance space.
Duo Joyride can also be booked as a trio or a band with 4 or 5 persons.

Despite the coronagraphs that had to be respected, a perfect duo. Forever in our hearts
August 2020, Fam. Kramers
A 1st class top band for a super top evening. This band makes the whole evening a top night with no silences. The entertainment with music and acts are great. This band even rehearsed and sang our opening dance (Never again from Gordon and replay) very well. Thank you so much for that. The interactions and pulling the guests along was so good too
February 2020, Arie
It was an unforgettable evening for us, partly due to your performance. The good interaction with the music performances and the songs that were sung for us. The two show numbers by Marthy were also very much appreciated, at the end of the evening with Viva Espãna everyone was on the floor, and we had no complaints about that the whole evening.
February 2020, Monique
Hereby I want to thank you again for your contribution to my 50th birthday. Thanks to you it became a party never to forget! You guys are a great duo and my guests also spoke highly of you. Even a limbo request was not too much for you
February 2020, Jilles
Had a fantastic evening for my wife's 50th birthday. Beautiful repertoire. Great show block and what an empathy these musicians have. They feel the audience very well and everything is possible. Apart from the fact that these are breed artists, they are also super nice, say LIEVE people. Just do it is the motto. We have had an unforgettable evening. This is really a must, people! Guaranteed successful party. Qualitative very good. Only positive and great reactions from all our guests
January 2020, Huib
Duo Joyride has completely lived up to our expectations. We really enjoyed our party! Super repertoire, sang beautifully and had a great time dancing! During and after the party we got a lot of enthusiastic reactions from our guests. Thanks to Rene and Marthy we had a great party for our birthdays and 35th wedding anniversary! Great!
November 2019, Dan
What a connection with the guests during a great party! Also some time for a chat. The music and singing was really fantastic. You're still enjoying it the other day. And then the interpretation of "Du" by Peter Maffay and Boudewijn de Groot were masterful!
November 2019, Henny
What have we enjoyed you as a duo on our 50th wedding anniversary. You have the lot so nice and well entertained with really great music and great in between dressing up etc. You were super nice with the people with great music and song. The dancing, the polonaise, through the whole hall and everyone really joined in. Also the way you dealt with the children and involving them was great. You are and were really sweet and cozy people. We want to thank you very much. The Event Centre was also a great location. All in all for us an unforgettable evening and wedding.
October 2019, Enschede
The atmosphere is already there in a few minutes. Really grandiose
October 2019, Jan
Joyride is a duo that has drawn us into a maelstrom of songs that suited our company in a versatile and professional way. That's the power of this duo who sense very well what the audience wants and effortlessly got us off our chairs and singing along
September 2019, Wilko
Dear René and Linda, you know how to make a musical party out of it. Joyride stands for: smooth, fun, all-round music, feet on the floor and super fun show tunes. Everyone was very enthusiastic about you! My advice to everybody: don't look any further, book Joyride
July 2019, Daniëlle
Grandiose, what a great duo. We all partied, sang, polonaised and went crazy. Great singing art. Very nice people with a golden heart

March 2019, Henk
Hereby I want to thank you for the performance of Joyride with Linda and Charles. We are very pleased with their performance, they got the people on the dance floor and the show numbers were definitely worth it
March 2019, Teune
We want to thank René and Marthy for the performance. It was a fantastic evening. Too bad it ended at half past 11. Afterwards I thought ...... i should have asked staff if we could continue for another hour but ... it was good. If someone wants music at their party we will certainly give your name.
February 2019, Patrick
Thank you so much for your great contribution to our party, everyone loved you.
February 2019, John
Thank you for your beautiful music, together with us you made a great Abraham & Sarah party. We enjoyed your company and still get many compliments for your performance from our guests. It was great
January 2019, Pauline
We want to thank you again for the great performance at Pauline's 50th birthday party! You created a great atmosphere, musically you are top and we will definitely ask you back, because we have a lot to celebrate in the coming years!
October 2018, Frank
For the new years party of the entrepreneurs association SIOCH in Hengelo we booked Joyride as 5-piece formation. As theme for that 12th of janauary 2019 we had ROCK'N ROLL. During the pleasant consultation beforehand we talked about how the band would respond to this theme and once on location (they were present well in advance) we put the finishing touches on it. After a spectacular opening after dinner with two percussionists, the audience was automatically sucked behind the tables by the catchy act with rock'n roll songs in matching outfits. The dance floor was never empty again that night with as highlight the part of the show where 12 different types appear, interpreted by the singer and the two singers. It's a pity that it ended at 00.30 hours, because the mood was good thanks to Joyride. It was the second time that I booked Joyride and certainly not the last time.
October 2018, Hanny
Joyride sensed the atmosphere of the evening perfectly and knew how to build up the party in such a way that really everyone was swinging. Unprecedented for parties with this company!
September 2018, Conny
Joyride was great, good, easy to contact by phone and email. They think along with you. Also during the day they ask if it meets the expectations. Requesting songs was no problem. The guests had a great time with the duo
September 2018, Kees
Saturday, December 22 we gave in honor of our 25 year marriage and 50th anniversary a "Christmas Ball". The music this evening was provided by the 5 "men" formation Joyride and I can say: What a TOP band. Young and old were on the dancefloor the whole evening and what have we enjoyed very much of the dressing up acts. A much heard reaction: "I haven't had such a nice party in ages, what a fantastic band!
August 2018, Kees
You gave us and our invitee an incredible and unforgettable evening. You have a great reportoir and there was something for everyone. Even 2 older ladies (80 and 86 years old) went wild on the dance floor. The show numbers that you did in between, I got text messages from the guests that they enjoyed it so much. Unfortunately it was 1.00 pm and the party was over. The evening flew by. As soon as we have something to celebrate, we know a good BAND!!!!!! Marthy & René, thank you so much for the wonderful evening.
July 2018, Pim
It was a very pleasant evening. Very nice duo as if we knew them for years. Very good music and know how to play into the crowd. We had so many nice reactions from young to old. It is unforgettable for all. Especially the show numbers everyone was very enthusiastic about. We all (100) people really enjoyed it. We will recommend them to everyone
June 2018, Jolanda
Despite the miscommunication so that you had to play in a tent behind our house instead of in a hall, you were able to switch quickly. For us it was a very beautiful and festive evening, you had the atmosphere very quickly and you got almost all our guests in the legs and in the polonaise! Also at the end you felt the situation very well and played a song as an encore, which we really appreciated! In short it was a great night with Joyride and we wish you a lot of success!
June 2018, Marcel
Thanks to René and Marthy we had a great wedding. They have a very wide repertoire of music and respond well to the wishes of the guests. The acts they did in between were great too. We only had positive reactions from our guests about this duo. We ourselves enjoyed every minute they played and especially the song they rehearsed especially for us. Marthy, We hope to see you again at a party, then we know for sure it will be fun.
June 2018, Jorika
We as a couple are very satisfied and our guests found it super too.
May 2018, Hans
We enjoyed your performance during our 50th wedding anniversary. What a party it became. So many reactions. Only super positive responses to your performance. We give you a 10 with a pin. The volume was just right. Thanks again! Again a party, then we certainly knock at your door
May 2018, Agnes
We and our guests enjoyed your great performance at Herberg de Pot in Markelo. Atmosphere, dancing, show songs, responding to/with the guests
May 2018, Cas
We enjoyed your performance at our 25th wedding anniversary on May 26th in the Heksenlaak in Barchem. Your appearance, the interaction with the guests, the show numbers, our wish (the song "Everything I do I do it for you) beautifully sung by Marthi and so on. Thanks again for an unforgettable evening.
February 2018, An
We want to thank you very much for your performance. We have had so many positive reactions, it was fantastic. We enjoyed the afterglow of your show block, which was the hit of the evening and it was great that you did it for us
January 2018, Ron
What a top performance it was! Many thanks on behalf of senders, but also thanks from our whole company! We wish Joyride a lot of success, we enjoyed it so much!
January 2018, Rianne
We had a great evening at our party to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary! Thanks to you people have been on the dance floor that we have never seen in all those 40 years
December 2017, Theo
Rene and Marthy, we really enjoyed your performance at our 12.5 year wedding anniversary and Theo's 65th birthday. Everyone was very positive and we constantly got to hear who are they and where do they come from. Now that the smoke has cleared we look back on a fantastic evening with "Joyride" and certainly for people who have plans for a party "Joyride" is a real top recommendation.
November 2017, Marc
Not easy to perform as a band for maybe 20 people, but they did it with a lot of fun. Nice music, diverse, good singing, involving the audience, hilarious acts. So much fun that we immediately booked them again for the opening of our company in a few weeks. And you don't do that if you're not satisfied!
November 2017, Wendy
Thanks again for performing with Joyride XXL at our party! We really enjoyed ourselves and everyone was very enthusiastic about your performance. The kids also had a great time and wanted you to come perform at their kids' party, haha. For us it was in 1 word FANTASTIC!
November 2017, Maria
We had a fantastic party thanks to this fantastic duo. We immediately felt at ease with René and Marthy. They made it an unforgettable night for us. They sensed exactly what everyone liked, fantastic, highly recommended.
October 2017, Sander
Dear Marthy, Linda and René, you were fantastic! You have made our 12.5 year wedding anniversary a great success. Everyone, from young to old, had a great time. You are a great match for the audience and also took our wishes into account. What made our evening very special, was a special request from us to end the evening, sung by Linda. In 1 word WONDERFUL! And an extra thank you to René; the morning after our party we immediately found pictures in our mailbox, taken by him during our party night (and mailed to us the night after the performance).
October 2017, Eddy
Dear René and Marthy, many thanks on behalf of us and the other wedding guests. We thought your performance was great. Your show blocks have not missed their effect and left a crushing impression on us all. There is still a lot of talk about it. We know where to find you next time.
October 2017, Marianne
What a great band. Music for young and old. And because of the show numbers we booked with them, a high entertainment level. Underneath the show numbers they pulled the people onto the dance floor. We received many positive reactions in the days after the gig
September 2017, Jaqueline
We have just recovered from our party in De Weere on Sept 30th. Apologies for the late reaction. What a nice atmosphere and what a great job you did. I only hear nice comments. Everyone thought it was great.
September 2017, Linda
The band is and our guests liked it very much. The age of the guests was from 1 to 90 years old and there was nobody and nobody who said anything negative about it. There have even been people who have asked me about the price and have said they want this band at their party.
September 2017, Henk
Joyride, thanks for the wonderful evening. The show numbers did a great job as well. We are getting great feedback from the guests, how wonderful they had a great time
August 2017, Helmi
Played what you wanted to hear, well matched, so really a must. You were also good in dealing with each other and with us. Thanks a lot!
July 2017, Frits
Together with our children and granddaughters, family and friends we had a wonderful evening. You're real top artists and the performance of our granddaughters made the evening complete. Everyone and I mean everyone loved your music
July 2017, Ali
We booked Joyride for our 25th wedding anniversary, they sing well, have a great repertoire and they got all our guests involved. Not only us, but also our guests had a very nice evening, partly thanks to you. In short, a very good band! If you want to have a nice evening with music from the 80's and Dutch then Joyride is a very good choice!
June 2017, Laura
Dear Joyride! We really enjoyed your performance. You have with your enthusiasm all guests on the dance floor. Thanks again!
June 2017, Barry
We have a super great wedding partly thanks to you. really a top day / evening to remember. We want to thank you therefore very much.
June 2017, Ed
What a great evening we had yesterday, partly due to you. We all had a great time dancing, jumping etc. to your beautiful songs. Super well sung and we have several times heard what you have good music.
May 2017, Ruud
First in 2007 for our 25 year wedding anniversary and when Ruud turned 50 a great evening with music by René, Marthy and Eric including all show blocks. In 2011 René and Marthy together during the surprise party with walking dinner when Tineke turned 50, also a fantastic evening where we all enjoyed your performance again. And now 2017 René and Linda who did the music together for Ruud's 60th birthday, great choice to also add Linda to your band! This evening was again great music by you guys, all our friends enjoyed it, so glad to see you again next time...!
May 2017, Harrie
I would like to give you a big fat compliment for the fantastic performance last Friday. I and many other people enjoyed it. Hope to see you again next year for our party
May 2017, Marcel
Just a few hours back from Malaga after a great party which wouldn't have been the same without you. Thanks again very much. Love Marcel and Annet.
May 2017, Dirriwachter
Look no further! Joyride is a must book for your party. We had a fantastic evening. Joyride did a great job with the evening and they knew how to get the audience of all ages on board with their performance. The communication was perfect, Rene even responded directly from his holiday address. Vocally also very strong, in short toppers.
April 2017, Mark,
January 7 we celebrated with friends and family because we had been married for 12.5 years on January 1. With you guys there as a trio, it was a fantastic start to the year 2017! We thought you were great and our guests were also very enthusiastic about you! We hope to see and hear you again somewhere.
March 2017, Rinus
Last Saturday, November 26th, a party at our place in Rotterdam. Sometimes you think I'm going to be surprised, well this was a surprise of the highest order. Right from the start there was a great atmosphere which, as the evening progressed, rose to an unprecedented level. The way and quality with which Joyride plays the people, shows great human knowledge and musical quality. We really had a top evening, about which we will talk for a long time. Thanks again for this fantastic evening and hopefully we'll see you soon (at least I'm looking forward to it).
March 2017, Edwin
Hi René and Marthy, we would like to thank you again for the fantastic musical party evening. We enjoyed it but so did our guests. Even the guests who were not dancing. The compliments for your music/singing and entertainment are flying around our ears. Partly because of your musical support our party went great. It was really fantastic and the music choices were great. And Marthy, how well you sang the song The Rose. When I still think about it, I (Marjoke) get goose bumps. In short, you were great and we will definitely recommend you to everyone.
February 2017, Chienus
On our 40th wedding anniversary the music was provided by the Allround Duo Joyride. What a topduo this is. They got the whole room upside down with their music and show sets. For us and our guests it was a great night and everybody asked where this duo came from and that they hadn't enjoyed themselves so much in ages. There is an excellent response to the audience and no one can sit on their chair or keep their lips sealed, you just have to sing and swing along! Highly recommended, we know who to invite as a band next time and will recommend this duo to everyone! THEY ARE THE BEST!
February 2017, Martin
On june 25th we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in the Schaapskooi in Delft. Partly because of the performance of the duo Joyride it has been a very successful evening where our family and friends can't stop talking about. The good music alternated with entertainment have ensured that the feet have been on the floor the entire evening. No one could stay on his chair.
February 2017, Andy
I wanted to thank you again for the super evening we had at Wilma's Snackbar after the Bonsai darts tournament. Only good and nice reactions.
January 2017, Marloes
We want to thank you for the unforgettable evening at our wedding. Few people stayed on the sidelines to the music you provided! Everyone was on the dance floor and everyone had a great time.
January 2017, Anja
Marthy and René, we had a very successful evening thanks to you. We still get very positive messages about you and it is definitely a recommendation to invite Duo Joyride to organise a great party. We have the feeling that the Netherlands have won the World Cup. I can recommend Duo Joyride to everybody to take a look at their website for those who want to organise a great party. Thanks again.
November 2016, Brigit
Everyone has SUPER enjoyed. Only had positive reactions. Now let's hope that more parties with your performance will follow.
September 2016, Familie
Because we do not have Facebook we would like to thank you from this side for the wonderful and pleasant evening. It was really great. We have really enjoyed
September 2016, Suzan
Mother 50 and son 20. What a great duo. We were very excited, booked through the internet and didn't know exactly what to expect. But this has surpassed us all. Great music for young and old and also the shows you did were great. We have received many positive reactions from our guests. With a "hangover" about it, we are still enjoying. Maybe till another party. If you are looking for a band for your party, book Joyride, they will surprise you the most!
August 2016, Hanneke
Hi guys, what a great night we had. Partly thanks to your performance. Quiet music at the right moment and great dancing with the right music. I've seen people dancing who I've never seen on the dance floor before. Thank you very much.
June 2016, Piet
Thanks to them, our wedding party became unforgettable for us and our guests.
June 2016, Grada
Partly because of them we had a great evening. It was a great party and the way they played with the audience and the interaction was really great. What an energy and passion. And how nice that there has been extensive contact before our party. This way we could discuss everything. We are very happy with the choice we made. After our wedding party we only heard compliments about the music. But also especially on the way they arranged the evening. Again only praise and praise. Thanks, thanks, thanks for a great evening. And on top of that you are a couple of wonderful people with feeling. We wish you a lot of success and good luck.
June 2016, Henri
On 4 September Joyride performed at our wedding. We can't say anything else than; "what a great gig" they gave. They played a nice repertoire and responded well to the partygoers. The evening flew by and both we, the wedding couple and all our guests, can look back on a pleasant, wonderful, fun, festive, jolly and unforgettable evening! Thank you Joyride, you are really TOP!
May 2016, Wim
After listening to them they were good, but yesterday at our 25 year wedding party they were absolutely top notch. With points the show acts. It was just insane. We had a nice old fashioned wedding. Partly thanks to Joyride who we can definitely recommend.
May 2016, Toon
Thanks to you our wedding has become unforgettable. For this again, THANK YOU!!! Regards, Toon & Thea
May 2016, Anke
Hereby a reaction to our wonderful party. The choice for Joyride was beyond expectations. With a lot of fun and dedication to quality they made our party unforgettable. All the reactions we got were very positive. A duo you can recommend with pleasure
March 2016, Gertjan
Hi Marthy and René, the closing night of Gabber Week 2016 was one that was unprecedented. I had heard that there would be a performance, but had not understood who of the Gabber volunteers this would be. So it was very surprising to see you perform. All the more because I had not expected this at all. I really enjoyed your performance/show. The music was nice and varied and I think there was enough reaction on the dance floor. In short, as far as I'm concerned next year Joyride again on the closing night of the Gabberweek.
