A BENEO New Year’s gig and party to remember!

Happy New Year 2023

On Thursday, January 19th, more than 100 Belgian BENEO colleagues were present for a New Year’s Afterwork Party with walking dinner and drinks on the house. It took place at the famous Slagershof in Tienen, Belgium, a cosy and popular restaurant and party place for young and old. I didn’t want to miss this party, as I know from experience that the fun level is always high on BENEO get-togethers. This time, my excitement was triggered even more, because the invitation mentioned Live music by BENEO colleagues.

And yes, the high expectations were met. Nothing but compliments to both live performing bands! The crowd was warmed up by the alternative rock band Argon, with our sales colleague Pieter Caspers as lead singer. But the new sensation of 2023 was following: the Foo Fibres! All members of this brand new band were found in the BENEO pool of talents: The two colleagues from sales, Robbe de Man and Pieter Caspers, on the bass guitar and on the guitar & vocals, respectively, and Jo Ruysen from the team Continuous Improvement for vocals and… just about everything. Because this guy does it all!!!

The set started off with Greenday’s very relevant hit Time of your Life, followed by a list that combined older and new hits. It was great to see them having the crowd sing along throughout the whole set and getting the party started! I can only highly recommend to hire this band for your party. Fun is guaranteed – the groupies and we love you banners are however not included by default 😉.

We want more! We want more!

After the live performances it was time for everyone to put on their dancing shoes. The resident DJ of Slagershof made sure the dance floor and surrounding areas remained full at all times. Some colleagues grabbed the opportunity to catch up at the bar others only left the dance floor to make a request to play their favourite song. It was definitely a night to remember!

Special thanks to everyone who made this party possible!
