Second Artist Chirstmas Flesseman
With this item we are happy to give you the name of the second artist who will perform at the annual Christmas party in Nursing Home De Flesseman this year: Ronnie Tober
Ronnie has been a well-known Dutch singer and entertainer for 52 years. After a succesful start of his carreer in America, he returned to Europe where he gathered more publicity by participating in the Knokke Festival. Ronnie also participated in the Eurovision Song Festival twice, the first time in the preliminaries of the Song Festival in 1965 with his song 'Geweldig'. The second time he was more succesful, representing the Netherlands at the Royal Albert Hall in London with his song 'Morgen'.
The years after this succes he worked as a tv host and made multiple records. A couple of his songs became national hits and are and have turned into sing alongs, especially with concerts. So this performance at De Flesseman christmas party will probably turn into a great real party.
Christmas at the Nursing Home
Every year Casa Rosso organizes a Christmas party for the residents and caregivers of the nursing home De Flesseman at the Nieuwmarkt. This party is held during an afternoon in December. Because of the well-known artists that come and perform then, the Christmas party is very well-known within the neighborhood. Owner Jan Otten finds it very important that the elderly of this nursing home have a wonderful Christmas as well. He wants to organize this party as a Christmas gift to the elderly and caregivers.
With this post we announce the first artists: Duo Hanna and Frits. They will sing typical Amsterdam songs which are highly appreciated by the residents of the nursing home, who mainly have their roots in Amsterdam.
Soon we will announce who the second artist of this Christmas party will be.
Anniversary Party Impression by AT5
The Amsterdam News Channel AT5 has made an impression about the smashing 50 Year Anniversary Party of Casa Rosso last weekend. In the movie several business partners, employees and friends of Casa Rosso tell about the company, the owner and the business.
“The Red Light District cannot exist without Casa Rosso” says owner Jan Otten at the end of the clip. And as the King of the Red Light District, he is probably right.
Watch the full clip of the Casa Rosso Anniversary party ON THE website of AT5.
Casa Rosso on National News
The 50 year anniversary of Casa Rosso was announced on the Dutch news channel SBS6 in the program Hart Van Nederland. They even call Casa Rosso ‘probably the most famous erotic theatre of the World!’
In the short impression owner Jan Otten tells (in Dutch) about his career at Casa Rosso. He started at Casa Rosso checking the tickets at the entrance. Nowadays he is still working 6 days a week at the entrance, selling tickets. He never sees a show himself though, as it might distract the entertainers.
Amsterdam has changed a lot in the last couple of years. “Luckily the police cooperates much better with Casa Rosso and some difficult customers nowadays”, says bouncer Chris Dolman, who has been working at Casa Rosso from the beginning.
