Jan Eijsermans, one of the singers of Veul Gère, will trade his microphone for a staff and stitch at this upcoming carnival. On the 11th, Eijsermans was appointed Prince John III of Kroekenstad (Tilburg).
“Un lekker delleke”, “Wa drèkte aon?” And “Gròzzie my neighbor.” These are some carnival squatters from the Veul Gère carnival association from Tilburg. Singer Jan Eggersmans will sing these songs less frequently during the Carnival group’s performances this season. He was appointed Prince John III on Saturday evening in Heuvel in Tilburg.
However, the new prince does not want to miss the Veul Gère concerts at Poppodium 013 on January 12 and 13. “I said it right away, I have to be there. So, this weekend I don’t have any obligations as a prince.” He also tries to attend parades wherever possible for the rest of the carnival season.
The prince was presented with his aide-de-camp, the Council of Eleven, the bodyguards, and the Hofkabel de Slotelsollers. Together they look forward to the carnival. “It is a short season, so we will celebrate to the maximum,” the new prince said. “Enjoying and letting go should be of utmost importance.”
Assistant Rob adds: “We will enjoy visits to associations and official events. But I also think it is good to reach out to young associations and find a way to do so. We want to celebrate the party with everyone.”
