Formed in 2005, De Toppers currently consists of Dutch singers Rene Froger, Gerard Joling and Jeroen van der Boom. In 2009, the group came to the attention of the wider world when they represented The Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Shine. Although they only reached the second semi-final of the show, the Dutch public took the band to its heart and now flocks to see them every year when they play annual concerts in Amsterdam.
For this year's De Toppers concerts, a total of 20 d:facto™ Vocal Microphones were employed, all of which were supplied by Amptec, DPA's distributor in the Netherlands. The selection included six with wired handles
, which were used by the backing singers, and 14 wireless d:facto™ mics
, teamed with a Shure wireless system, which were used by De Toppers and their on-stage guests.
