The Best of 2014

2014 saw the release of a Luv' compilation by Universal Music Germany

José Hoebee had a new manager (Dennis van Korven) for six months. After two difficult years, she had new projects (a makeover, asingle entitled "Noheyo" and a string of live performances during the summer....). Good news: Patty Brard and her were reconciled after months of misunderstanding.

As always, La Brard has been busy on television (Shownieuws, Bonje met de buren, Patty's Big Fat Ibiza Wedding...). Her wedding with architect Antoine van de Vijver hit the headlines in September.

Marga Scheide was very discreet. She confirmed the news about the publication of the long-awaited Luv' photo book (a project supervised by Peter Boonstra).

* The Best of Luv'




Universal Music Germany released "The Best of Luv" in January. This compilation featured the singles from the group's heyday (1977-1981) as well as albums tracks.
