Merry Christmas!
December 23th 2017

At the end of the year usually people look back at the past year. For us it was a year in which we said goodbye to Phil with two great live shows. We also have welcomed Marck who returned to Mr. Knowhow after seven years. In the rehearsal room and on stage it feels good again.

Besides looking back at the past year we can also look forward to the upcoming year. As we have announced before we will play two shows at Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS). But we will do more live shows. More news about that will follow soon! We also have been busy working on new music. You will hear more about that in the new year.

For now we wish you all happy Holidays! Next year we are 'going to break all places down'!

News update
August 5th 2017

It has been quiet for a while at Mr. Knowhow Head Quarters so we thought it might be time for an update. There hasn't been a lot of news and at this moment we haven't got any live shows scheduled. For us our holiday period has started and we are busy on other things. That doesn't mean we don't have time for the band at all. In the meantime we are busy writing new music for which we need some time. Besides we are planning for some new live shows later on this year so we are certainly going to rock some more with you this year. More about that later. For everyone who's having a holiday or planning to have one, we wish you a great time!

Marck Kuiken returns to Mr. Knowhow
January 11th 2017

Recently Phil decided to leave Mr. Knowhow and we had to seek for a new bass player. At the start of the new year we are happy to announce that Marck Kuiken returns to Mr. Knowhow as bass player. Marck was our bass player from the beginning back in 2008 but had to leave the band in 2010. We always kept in contact and with Marck having more time nowadays this was a logical step to take. On March 19th we will do a show at the bar of Muziek Organisatie Noord (MON) in Groningen (NL). Marck will join us on stage again then and we will perform with the rockers of Kill Your Darlings. We hope to see you all then!

Happy Holidays
December 20th 2016

2016 has almost ended and we are almost ready for Christmas. We will join our families and friends and will take a little time off. At the end of the year we look back at a change in line up of our band. Phil wants to do something else with another genre of music. That was sad news but happily Phil still will play two shows with us in the upcoming year. We also soon will announce our new bass player! So stay tuned for more news soon. We now wish you all happy Holidays and hope to see you all again next year!

Phil says goodbye to Mr. Knowhow
December 2nd 2016

Unfortunalety we have to announce that Phil will leave Mr. Knowhow after five years. Phil recenty told us that he wants to seek his musical challenge and creativity somewhere else. It was a difficult decision for Phil. We also think it's sadly that we have to say goodbye but we respect Phils decision.

We can look back at five great years together with Phil in which we have made a great development and build a tight live act. One of the highlights of the years with Phil were the production and recordings of our third EP Mk III Analog. But we also will always remember the energetic live shows and great nights out with the band.

We will do a 'say goodbye' show with Phil on Saturday January 28th 2017 at 't Witte Hoes in Adorp (NL). The show starts at 9.30 pm and the entree is free. We hope to see you all to rock once more with Phil and Mr. Knowhow.
