The latest issue of "ABBA Intermezzo Fan Club Magazine" features a behind-the-scenes interview with the Luv' singers José Hoebee and Marga Scheide as well as Marga's partner Michiel Gunning and Flemish author Stany Van Wijmeersch. In 2016, Luv' took part in the release party of Stany's book "We all love ABBA" at the Harbour Club in Amsterdam (see news posted on May 27th, 2016). Stany interviewed José, Marga and Michiel for his publication.
Several subjects were discussed (including the photonovel (featuring the Luv' ladies and Michiel) which appeared in Stany's book and the links of Michiel and the members of ABBA (especially Agnetha).
The influence of ABBA's music on Luv's sound is major (see article posted on July 18th, 2016). Moreover, José teamed up in the 1980s with Bonnie St. Claire to record cover versions of ABBA songs in Dutch (including the Top 40 hits "Cassandra" and "Zoals Vrienden Doen" (The Way Old Friends Do). In March 1985, TROS channel broadcast the TV musical "ABBAcadabra" based on the songs of the legendary Swedish band. The show starred several Dutch celebrities including Bonnie & José as well as Marga.
Karin Angeleyes (a common Facebook friend of José, Stany and me) has also been mentioned in the Intermezzo magazine. She launched a Facebook page to support to reissue of Bonnie & José's album "Herinnering" on CD and to cover any news about this iconic LP: https://www.facebook.com/HerinneringAlbum/
When asked what were the future plans of Luv', Marga answered: "The bookings for LUV' keep pouring in, many of them already for 2018! Personally, that means clever planning, because Michiel and I spend as much time as possible in our house in Ibiza. We were pretty close with a serious project in Miami, but unfortunately that had to be put on hold, due to the sudden very serious health problems from the initiator's wife. Obviously, the most important thing is that she will recover completely. Meanwhile, we are busy enough as it is in the Netherlands and Belgium, while Germany is knocking on our door, so there is no time to get bored!".
