From a previously written review of a performance in Niehove:
"An evening with the Neil Young Tribute band is a lot of fun, especially if you, like me, are convinced of Neil Young's musical genius. The band can truly bring his musical genius to the stage, moreover, that vocalist Henri de Vries not only resembles Neil Young, but - even more so - sounds like Neil Young. The voice similarity is truly amazing. "
