How can I join the fanclub?
It’s quite easy. Simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject ‘Membership’. It’s not compulsory, but we would also like to know your name, your city/country of residence and your language. We currently offer the website in English and Dutch, but we might addd more translations in the future. Within a few day, you should receive a response with your membership number.
If you want to give any suggestions or share some content (photo’s, concertreports), you are very welcome to do so.
I do not live in the Netherlands, can I still join?
Of course you can! It is the Dutch fanclub, because the founder is a Dutch guy, but we do know there are fans from all over Europe, some of which even travel to the Netherlands or Italy to attend a concert. So by all means, join our happy family of slightly nutty froggies. If enough people from outside of the Netherlands join, we might change the name of the fanclub to RanestRane.eu and continue as a European fanclub 😉
What does membership cost?
Nothing, nada, zilch. Seriously, it is free. We do not offer a printed magazine, we do not employ anybody and the costs for the website are currently paid by us. Although a voluntary donation is always appreciated. If in the future we will organize fanclub activities, we might charge a fee for those, although we will always try to keep the costs as low as possible. But for example, if we ever rent a theater to show the complete Space Odyssey with the music, we will sell the tickets, not give them away.
It is always possible that we at some point will introduce a paid memberhip, but only if we can really offer something of value in return, like a printed magazine. So for now we keep on doing it online and for free. So there is absolutely no reason not to join.
