Recently, Dutch celebrity gossip magazine Weekend featured an article about pop, disco and dance groups from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s which are still touring. Marga Scheide and José Hoebee (of Luv') are mentioned with 2 Unlimited, Boney M. ft. Liz Mitchell, Brotherhood Of Man, The Pointer Sisters, Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, Take That and Mai Tai.
Last month, the website of "Magic Music Magazine" and De Telegraaf announced that Marga and José could be booked as Luv' for performances in Germany (see news posted on October 27th, 2015). José put the record straight about a so-called "comeback" in an interview on Radio 10 and on her Facebook page (see news posted on October 28th, 2015). She explained that nothing had been decided yet. The singer was not really opposed to the idea of performing with Marga.
To this day, a real comeback of Luv' has not been announced yet. But the article in Weekend gives hope to the fans. My Facebook friend and pop singer/music promoter Casper Janssen has scanned it and translated it in English for the non-Dutch admirers of the girl group. I would like to thank him.
"Almost forty years ago Patty, Marga and José scored big hits across Europe. Back then these beautiful young girls flew high accross the stage. Four decades later Marga and José still want to go on stage, for a nice amount of money. The dance routines have remained the same though they are a little more stiff. And the voices are a little lower, but thanks to the current techniques this is solved with tricks. So Marga and José don't have any problem to revive Luv' for the umpteenth time. Patty Brard is not allowed to rejoin. Her place will be, if requested, filled by the 64 year old Ria Tielsch, who already replaced Patty in 1980."
