It is obvious that the tractors and parts of Mark and Goitzen Meindertsma from Kapel -Avezaath have no connection to the Blues. However, we do enjoy the music and festivities that the Blues in Wijk has been organising for 10 years. The sponsorship is therefore a pleasure for us to encourage the BluesinWijk with their active organisation. Success and to Blues. Agri-Parts is the Dutch market leader for used tractor and telescopic handler parts. We have been a trusted partner for European agricultural mechanisation for over 60 years. We are also active outside Europe in the purchase and sale of parts and damaged vehicles. Through our worldwide network, Agri-Parts can also offer interesting exchange and aftermarket parts.

As a company, Design Advice offers more than 40 years of (graphic) knowledge and know-how gained in the design profession. The versatile work experience in printing, publishing, design agency, stand construction and TV company NOS-NOB has resulted in Rekké becoming a designer and communication man in heart and soul. After all these experiences, Rekké consciously chose to work solo from Wijk bij Duurstede in 1999. Rekké can realise everything the client needs in the field of design, from business card to exhibition stand, from brochure to website design. Take a look at the portfolio of REKKE.NL. Anton Rekké is also a real bluesman. About his cooperation with BLUESinWIJK he says: “I have known the Bluesmen from the very beginning, because (blues)music is my great passion. After the sudden death of their previous designer Gerard Wissink, I took over the design pencil from him and further developed the communication house style. But we kept Gerard’s little guitar in the restyled logo. It is extremely pleasant to work with the men from BLUESinWIJK, with their professional approach, and to sponsor design and thus help to raise the BLUES in WIJK bij Duurstede to a very high level, for which I would like to thank the MEN.”
