1961 - 2014

(Jan, 2007) I am from Vredendal, on the West Coast of South Africa. I have been married to Karen for 21 years and have two daughters, Suzanne (18) and Gené (14). Born in 1961, I grew up in Stellenbosch, 50 km’s from Cape Town. Came to Vredendal in 1994. I now run my own business (Lawn & Garden maintenance) after a 15 year stunt in banking. Some of my favourite music artists are: - Eric Clapton, Queen, ACDC, The Eagles, Bob Dylon, Van Halen, BZN, James Last, Jazz (Dutch Swing Colledge Band), and Light Classics.

Musical Background: I started playing piano at age six and took lessons until I was 18. In the mean time, I also started playing Yamaha Electone festivals on a Yamaha D3R electone organ. Then, I become ajudicator for the festivals until it was stopped in SA.

I bought my first Yamaha keyboard in 1984, a small Portasound PC100, and one of the first keyboards available in SA.It was followed by two other models I can’t remember. I then upgraded that to a Portatone PSR 70, followed by a PSR 500, PSR 510, and PSR 2700. In 1998, I bought a PSR 540 followed by the PSR 1100 in 2004. I also played in various bands from 1995 until 2005, but my business keeps me too busy these days to carry on!

I still have both the PSR 540 and the PSR1100. I also have a complete YAMAHA PA system at home, amps (2X P5000S), bassbins (SW115V), tops (S112IV), mixer (MG16/6FX) and MS300 powered monitor. There is also a YAMAHA acoustic/electric guitar (FGX423SC). I am still learning to play that! [Jannie moved up to the PSR3000 in early 2007 and then the Tyros2 by the end of the year! - Joe W ]

So, as you can see, I am a YAMAHA freak. There is hardly a day that goes past that I do not play. And I still learn everyday! Music will one day save the world. I truly believe that. So, let’s rock!

I am sorry to say that Jannie Kroese passed away on 29 May 2014 after a long illness. - Joe W
