Earlier today, José Hoebee had a lunch with two of her most faithful fans (and now friends) Marco Rens and Jos Theuns at the Ambacht, a café-restaurant in Best, NL. The gentlemen have known Luv's lead singer since the early 1980s.

Jos and Marco first met their idol on December 5th, 1981 in Hilversum during the broadcast of NCRV radio show "Los Vast". At the time, José was promoting her first solo single "I'm so sorry" (see article posted on December 5th, 2016).
