Maarten is the singer/guitarist of the Irish party-folkband Acting The Maggot, also of the duo René & die Rooie (a.o. One Two Trio), also performs solo. With just an acoustic guitar and a huge voice, he plays fantastically beautiful songs or just the most famous songs. Or of course a mix of everything.

Add a good dose of Irish folk by The Dubliners and some Dutch sing-alongs (from Hazes to De Dijk) and the party is complete. He brings the absolute cosiness of a pub to your party or event.

Because of his years of experience he doesn't just play songs, but Maarten will involve the audience where possible. Maarten already performed in Belgium, China, Germany, Denmark, France China and of course for years in the Netherlands.

A party

Maarten makes it a party! At a performance with Maarten there is immediately a cozy atmosphere. Standing still and being still is just not possible anymore. You want to sing and dance along. Also a big fat compliment for the special, voluntary, corona concerts that Maarten gave. Many people, including mainly elderly and disabled people got during the lockdown and black time a very broad smile on their face again (via Google)

Good musician

For both Acting the Maggot, Rooie Rico and Maarten de Gans himself applies: good musician, entertainer in heart and soul, excellent interaction with the audience, a guarantee for an evening full of music, party, happiness. (via Google)

Fantastic voice

I enjoy his "entertainment" and fantastic voice every time he performs. In the beginning with Rutger & die Rooie, and afterwards with a wonderful team of musicians around him where especially the performance at the Spoorzone in Boxtel still regularly comes to mind, but, ehh..... what he did during this terrible Corona period as a solo singer, with his golden clicker AND his golden heart, at the various nursing homes borders on the unbelievable. Elderly people, mostly demented, who spontaneously start clapping, singing or dancing along, get from Maarten the "sunshine" they have been waiting for for a long time, and I was there, I saw it happen, and I got goose bumps and waited quietly whether feathers would start growing!

Wonderful

I knew Maarten de Gans from different stage creations and I have to say I love them all. Solo or with band (btw very talented musicians) he can amaze and entertain me. It's always great time and a lot of wonderful memmories from NL. He has great contact with audience... it seems like he is singing just for you. During 2020- covid time I had possibilities to hear Him online- that was a great time ... anyway I'll be back to see Him/Them live. You can not miss it too! (via Google)

Even better than hoped for

Maarten has his heart in the right place. He is a good person, sociable and a top singer / entertainer. I was lucky enough to have him perform with Acting the Maggot at a private party and it was an instant FIGHT! Maarten can also touch people solo with his musical talent. Are you looking for musical entertainment? Then definitely get in touch with Maarten. You will get the party you were hoping for, but then even better. (via Google)

Special voice

For me, Maarten stands for musicality in Optima Forma. His special voice and talent are unique. I got to know the artist Maarten de Gans as lead singer of the party band Tranen met Tuite. After that I frequently enjoyed his Irish vocals with his band Acting the Maggot and as a solo artist on Sunday afternoons with various genres. Also as Rooie Rico during carnival he turns the place upside down in no time! In each of the above performances are quality and professionalism guaranteed. Craftsmanship at the top! And also a Brabander with his heart in the right place given his many selfless performances at all kinds of residential care facilities during the corona period. (via Google)

Wonderful music

Maarten is a passionate singer and guitarist, he can adapt effortlessly when playing for the elderly, then swaying in the background. But also with his special band Acting the Maggot he makes beautiful music. (via Google)

Variety Artist

An artist who, both solo and with his band, with Dutch music and his humor gets the audience on board in no time. Absolutely recommended for a great party night, where you can reminisce for a long time. Also with his top 40 work, his Irish and English music, both solo or with his band Acting the Maggot guarantees a very nice musical evening. Maarten is a born artist. Once you have experienced him on an evening of music you will want to see and hear him more often. (via Google)
