Bob & Claire
Bob van Buren is the founder of music café restaurant Kapitein Zeppos. After years of working offshore, the need arose to bring together his love for music and good food and drinks. Bob had been playing the sax for years. His preference for music was that of the forties and fifties. He also founded the Zeppos Big Band, with which they performed regularly in Kapitein Zeppos and abroad.
In the early years he had to manage the place on its own, but that would soon change.
Claire van Buren is taking care of the brasserie and the café and loves to take care of the green garden in and outside the building. Together with Bob and the famous dutch pianist Jan Robijns she organizes the famous Zeppos chantants. Her musical preference is mainly French music. Brel, Greco, Edith Piaff.
"What I love about Zeppos is the diversity, young and old together. Everyone feels at ease. Yes, and the Mediterranean atmosphere. Zeppos is a like holiday in Italy or Spain."
