Rob gives his own sound to existing songs and writes beautiful songs himself. Great voice and pleasant personality to give party extra sparkle.

Hendrikse was invited to be present earlier to celebrate the birthday, the atmosphere was nice and Hendrikse fitted in very well with the group, there were several performances and Hendrikse started to play in the evening. The sound was great and everyone including several artists were very impressed. Hendrikse created an atmosphere which made all the artists want to continue playing until late. I can highly recommend Hendrikse for any party.

Yesterday we had a party where we asked Fixxxman to provide the music It turned out to be a great afternoon where his music matched well with what we had in mind Thank you for the beautiful tones and your beautiful voice which, combined with your warm personality, gave it an extra touch. After the party only positive reactions. We are glad we went for Fixxxman
On 04-02-2021 Fixxxman (Rob Hendrikse) came to us in Grootschermer for a home concert. It was a surprise on the occasion of the 60th birthday of an old guitarist who likes a bit of Blues. Well, the birthday boy was in for a treat. Besides popular covers Rob also played some of his own sounds and they were just as much appreciated as the golden oldies. Also during the small breaks Rob proved to be a pleasant talker and with his impressive appearance a social person. His sound took us along past times and regularly touched a sensitive chord Thank you very much for the interpretation of this birthday, Rob, it was unforgettable!
