Fixkes are six fellows from Stabroek, a village north of Antwerp, Belgium. Sam Valkenborgh, his brother Jan Valkenborgh, Peter Deckers, Johan Pauwels, Bart Palmers and Joris Van den Broeck combine since 2005 acoustic pop and rap in the local Dutch dialect. Fans of Jack Johnson, Everlast, G. Love and Flip Kowlier will probably like the band. Like so many bands, Fixkes intially distributed their songs on their MySpace page. In 2007, they were picked up by the Dutch Excelsior Recordings.
