Sam Gooris answered today the 10 most gegoogelde questions about himself in the last podcast of this radioseizoen of Qmusic-dj s Maarten Vancoillie and Dorothee Dauwe. Sam tells why he doesn’t more students want to act, how he and his wife has to know, how much action from him will cost and how his career started.
This is the reason why Sam Gooris does not occur for students
Sam Gooris speaks in the podcast, clear language: “I come not for students!” And there, the Flemish singer some very good reasons for that. “I started against my desire to leave and go to those performances. 9 of the 10 times I had to struggle to in my car. I am spat upon, doused with beer, I have keys and cameras to my head and the biggest names was on a campus in Limburg: there, they shot marbles at me with catapults. And then later, our nurses, judges, doctors and lawyers … Eddy Wally have they have also an orange in his face thrown. Therefore, I have, after my daughter was born, made the choice to never perform for students.”
But that implies organisers had no objections: “They are trying me still to book for such performances. Last year I had normally occur at Flanders Expo in Ghent, but when I arrived on the scene and saw that the students was, I’m just back left,” he says.
How much does a performance of Sam Gooris?
How much does it cost to Sam Gooris to book for a gig? “All of you turn me to death, I don’t know,” laughs Sam. “I estimate around 1400 or 1500 euros.” But who manages his income then? “That, my wife, my mother and my accountant. Ask me not what I do at a gig. For me it is most important that I have my taxes, my house, my cars, the electricity and the gas clean can pay and that my wife and children nothing short. And if there are people on the floor, that there is no dead mice in the closet. Then I’m a happy boy. If I want to buy something for myself, then I will also always first consult with my wife or it may go and how I need to go buy one, what card that I should go and get, for example (laughs).”
