Top performance at the residential groups

He performed at the residential groups with his guitar. Played for 15 minutes at each housing group. Many enthusiastic residents and staff who danced, clapped and sang along. At 1 group there was even a resident who participated with her own instrument, so much fun:)

Fantasticht

Great performance had outdoors, our residents more than enjoyed the recognizable music. Because this performance is very mobile we were able to provide recognizable music to the residents all around our building.

Repeatable

William Smulders gave a musical performance at the Hoogstede location on 23 June 2021. The residents were all very enthusiastic and some of them even made a dance, even in a wheelchair. During the music they enjoyed a snack and a drink. This performance is really worth repeating.

Looking for a fun afternoon?

William has performed in our nursing home. It was a pleasant afternoon with varied songs. It was great that the residents also enjoyed the Elvis songs and many other recognizable songs. One resident indicated that William may come back again. A pleasant afternoon with listening songs and familiar sing-alongs.

Great coronaproof gig

My mother had a great birthday thanks to the great performance of William Smulders. Evergreens for an hour. She turned 75 today and he gave a coronaproof gig at Villa Vrijland. Highly recommended. A day with a golden edge. Especially thanks to the nice and sweet staff.

Thanks for everything!

Hello William and Lieke, Just a personal email to thank you for a fantastic afternoon. I am 100% satisfied with the presentation, singing and how everything went. Everything was simply great and my guests had the same opinion and my wife has yet to recover from the surprises that day. At the next party I will definitely ask you again and don't even look any further

They are an enthusiastic duo and very flexible

Live duo William Smulders & Lieke Grey concluded our ceremony in a beautiful, cheerful way. Gives a very nice own atmosphere and was a much appreciated addition to our wedding toast! In the background and at the same time pleasantly present. The guests regularly came to us with the question where did you arrange such a nice band? Nice anyway!

Thanks again and who knows until next time

We would like to thank you for the special Saturday night on April 27th. In addition to the conviviality among the people, we have greatly appreciated your input and music. This did not lead to a full dance floor, but many people present complimented us on your music and the cozy, relaxing atmosphere. We are happy to convey that to you

Hi Wiliam! It's been a while, but better late than never. I wanted to say that my parents (and the rest) enjoyed your performance! We've been really happy with you. Had to be said

Exceeded our wildest expectations

We often have a party here and there and when we say goodbye you never hear anything about the band. With us it was a bit different, one after the other, thanks for the party, food was good, but that music was cool! The photographer, who is a fan of Elvis himself and has been performing with his wife for years, asked us to let him know that he liked you so much. The owner of De Lodge, Walter Kats, who has been organizing parties for decades, came to let us know this morning that it had been a very long time since he had had such a good band!
