This singer from Amsterdam is a true diva. On every stage, she shines in the spotlights. And tonight, that stage is The Waterhole, where she performs a soulful show, full of funky and poppy tunes with some of her many musical partners.
But Farida Merville has earned her stripes long ago. Her career in music is a real adventure. At the end of the eighties, she made her debut and many different projects would follow. She worked with a seamingly endless list of great artists, like the late Thé Lau, Samantha Fox, Quazar and many other quintessential nineties acts. As a solo artist, she released a number of records. Her comeback-album Question Mark came out in 2010, on Chique Records. Tonight, she’ll once again be centre stage!

Their music mixes tight funky rhythms with catchy pop and rock melodies, and old blues, soul, reggae and jazz vibes to make it an eclectic musical melting pot accessible for a very broad audience.
BAKKELIET was born in a tiny village on the Dutch/Belgian border. Calling them a coverband is almost dishonoring for these 5 men. Bakkeliet is so much more than that. A more than excellent band with a singer with a towering charm and a voice like a clock and you get the ideal recipe for a night never to forget.
This band plays flawlessly on the public, with covers that go from Kensington to the Foo Fighters to return to BZB or Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren. After having played literally in every place in their close environment they decided to conquer the ' Clash of the Cover bands '.. and how! After the first regional trophy in house was won, the figurative icing on the cake followed a few months later with the victory of "best cover band in the Benelux".
The future for this level-headed boys is bright. the Netherlands will find out how this band can catch you off guard with their energy. You don't see or hear Bakkelie... you experience it!
