Johny Kendall & The Heralds - On The Move (1965)


Singer Hans Donkerkaat from Amsterdam. His first group, Johnny Kendall & Heralds, was one of Nederlands' first real beat group. The proof of just how popular they were is the fact that when Herman Stok presented their "St. James infirmary" as a flop in his tv-programme Top Of Flop: it became a hit over almost all of Europe. In 1963, De Heralds were formed out of the instrumental group Les Sylvains and stayed together till 1968: Wim Roozendaal (dr, to John Kristel and Conny Vink), Gerard van Veen (b, to Tony Alberti), Frits van Es (g, to Tony Alberti) and Dennis Jacquet (g,o).  After the Heralds, Johnny worked with several groups: Selection, Maskers, Machine and Pineapple.  In addition, in 1973 with Wally Tax and in 1974/75 in Germany in Bert Kaempfert Orchestra.  Selection (1968): Jan-Pieter Boekhoorn (o,p, ex-Tee Set), John van Dijk (dr, ex-Group W.N., replaced Fred Kragten, to Gallery), Loek Kuiper (b, later with Dave & Jos Brink) and Dennis Jacquet (g, ex-Heralds). Selection (1969): Jan-Pieter Boekhoorn (o,p, to Sympathy), Andre Versluijs (b, to Mike Justin & Crystal), Jaap de Wit (g, to Bismarck) and Willem Voorhaar (dr, ex-Bob Bouber).
