I love making music!
When I was about 4 years old, I was a big fan of the drummer from my father’s band. Since then I wanted to play the drums. But I took a bit of a detour. I had recorder lessons for a few years and piano lessons for a few years. On my 13th birthday, I walked downstairs and there was a drumkit in the middle of the room. WOW!
After a few years I found myself playing the drums in the band called Snaer. At first it was a lot of fun, but later on the band started to fall apart.
I took a masterclass with percussion specialists ‘Slagerij van Kampen’, which was very cool, but I really wanted to play in a band again. My sister and I started Ladies Decision, now known as Maidstone. It is great to make music with these girls! Every time I look forward to our rehearsals and performances!
Maidstone is an ambitious and upbeat all female rock/pop band from the Netherlands, formerly known as Ladies Decision. The band consists of Renée van Rooij (lead vocals), Nadja Geskus (drums & backing vocals), Myriam Geskus (guitar) and Judith Overbosch (bass & backing vocals). We primarily play our own songs and occasionally perform songs of great artists we admire.
