Yamaha QL5 Aids Vandenberg’s Return To Rock

June, 2014

Dutch guitarist Adrian Vandenberg has kept a low profile since gracing the 1980s biggest stages with Whitesnake. But that is all changing now, as he hits the road with a new band, aided by a Yamaha QL5 digital console.

Since leaving Whitesnake in 1991, Vandenberg has spent most of the intervening years concentrating on his family and a burgeoning career as an artist. But the end of 2013 saw him return to rock’n’roll with Vandenberg’s MoonKings.
Having played a European club tour, the band is currently playing a raft of European festivals, with monitor engineer Joost Muller manning a Yamaha QL5.
Joost is the son of Jos, owner of rental company Decilux, and lighting designer Marja Muller, both of whom were closely involved with the guitarist’s pre-Whitesnake band, Vandenberg. With MoonKings again renting equipment from Decilux, Joost was keen to use the Yamaha QL5.
“I was using a mixer by another manufacturer on the earlier shows in the Spring, but my father and I were really impressed by the QL5 when we saw it at ProLight+Sound. Decilux has recently invested in several Yamaha consoles, including a CL3, CL5 and QL5 and we thought using a QL5 for MoonKing’s monitor console would be a wise choice,” says Joost.
