Biography

Fixkes are six fellows from Stabroek, a village north of Antwerp, Belgium. Sam Valkenborgh, his brother Jan Valkenborgh, Peter Deckers, Johan Pauwels, Bart Palmers and Joris Van den Broeck combine since 2005 acoustic pop and rap in the local Dutch dialect. Fans of Jack Johnson, Everlast, G. Love and Flip Kowlier will probably like the band.

Like so many bands, Fixkes intially distributed their songs on their MySpace page. In 2007, they were picked up by the Dutch Excelsior Recordings. One month later, their first single Kvraagetaan (Irequestit) entered the Belgian singles chart at #2 and hit #1 for 16 weeks, a belgian record and most sold single of 2007. Fixkes released their debut album ‘Fixkes’ in November 2008 which received Gold status one month later.

In January 2010 Fixkes released the single “Rock-‘n-Roll” from their forthcoming second album “Superheld” which will hit the stores on March 8.
