The Live Show:
The live show is well-known in the Alkmaar region of Holland for being Shock-rock, being very controversial and sometimes even perverse. However, nowadays the show is less shocking and concentrates more on the music.
In the live band, through the years from the first show in 1997, there have been many talented (and not so talented) musicians who have graced the stage with ZEEKtheFREAK, but only one has been with the band from the beginning. It is guitarist and vocalist Bas Lute, a.k.a. The Rebel Jesus, appropriately named after an early song he sang. Bas is another multi-talented musician.
