      The Dutch Grodno Groovers in Belarus

Grodno, 3-5 June 2010 - Representing Holland at the Festival of National Cultures in Grodno, Belarus, turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience. The band, including myself, was put together especially for this occasion and with its highly dynamic gigs (the final one at the big square with an audience of over 50.000 people) it left a stunning impression across Grodno. Within three days the bandmembers had turned into 'superstars' in this city of the former Sovjet Union.

About me

Born in the summer of '69 and grown up in Leuvenheim, a small village not far from Arnhem in the Netherlands, I developed my interrest for nature, photography, sports and music in a safe and easy going environment. Studying Electronics at the HAN Bachelor College (HTS) in Arnhem provided me a new dimension to my love for guitars and musical equipment, as well as High-End Audio systems. I graduated in 1995 and spent the majority of my professional career so far within Telecommunications/ICT in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Arab Emirates.
To me, one of the biggest challenges in life is finding balance between ratio and intuition, between psyche and what is physical. Life is to enjoy, and once in balance we're able to enjoy it properly.. together.


Living in Velp near Arnhem on the edge of the National Park Veluwezoom with its magnificent hills, woods and heathland, I found the place where I feel best. Pulling out of a busy daily life this is where I play my guitar, work on my audio productions or take my mountainbike into the hills.

I also have passion for technology based on a large technical/engineering background. On top of that, with my commercial sense and competences, I am a Sales & Marketing professional who loves to operate within the dynamic fields of internet technology. I consider myself a selling (business) consultant who empathizes with my customers and bring solutions with real added value to their projects. I like progression, take initiative, develop business, optimize the market approach and align marketing resources and internal processes. All with empathy, intuition and creativity.

On the creative side I play with my bands regularly and work on the productions of The Jostle and Baby Jade Brown.

By combining my knowledge of electronics and my musical passion and activities, I started building high-quality tube guitar amplifiers. Built for the guitarist who wants only the best sounding amp for his gigs and studio productions, the amplifiers of Luciano Amps reproduce the ultimate vintage sound and feel of the legandary Marshall 'plexi' amps, combined with the versatility of todays guitar amplifiers.
