The Trixons 1956 were from Deinze ( between Gent &Kortrijk ), they were concidered as a good “ball room band” and toured east and West Flanders. The Trixons finally finished in the mid 1970's.
There was a bassist( Adelain ( no last name), a lead guitarist (Martin), organist (Laurent), drums of course(Daniel Huys), and sometimes accordionist (Berke Goethals) , or saxophonist Aimee Verleyen .

The original bongoes were damaged in the 1960's when on route to a concert the car was hit at the back and broke them...

The set was all in cases and came with trixon seat, trixon keys, sizzle, cymbals, stands, sticks,wood blocks, trixon arms!

The drum set was gifted to Filip by Daniel in 1978 after the band finished, and Filip always kept it original and only played in the house... He kept his promise to always looked after the rare drum set still with original calf heads... 

40 years later Filip decided he wanted the drum to be played again live and 
after much discussion he sold the drumset to Dave Prince!

Many thanks to Dave Prince for this information given to him by Filip and Jeroen (Daniel was Filip's stepfather).
