90's Rock

Waste

Nineties stadium rock that you’ll rarely hear this good. The Amsterdam coverband Waste takes audiences back to the haydays of Guns N’ Roses, Radiohead and Metallica.

But you’ll find much more on the huge repertoire of this four-piece. U2, The White Stripes, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Lenny Kravitz can also frequently be found on the setlist. The band was founded by a group of friends, who organised a weekly jam session in the rehearsal space of Rock Supplies in Amsterdam. Nowadays, singer / guitarist Ramon van Loon, lead guitarist Onno Postma, bass player Peter van der Linden and drummer Charles Doornbos play regularly in the greater Amsterdam area. The formation reached national success when they reached the final of the renowed Clash of the Coverbands competition.

Wednesday Rock n' Roll Jam Night

Jesse Koch is no stranger to Amsterdam’s music scene. His first Waterhole-shows are many years back, back when his father had to come along as he was legally not allowed to enter a bar yet, given his age. In the years that followed he built himself a name with coverproject ‘Jesse en de Muffins’, amongst other bands.

By now, Jesse graduated his guitar-studies at the Herman Brood Academie in Utrecht, and currently he is continuing his development even further at the Amsterdam Conservatory.
De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.
Besides these rockcovershows, Jesse is actively working on orginals with ‘The Silverfaces’ and ‘Hound’ (amongst others).

On Jesse’s Rock n’ Roll Jam Night, everybode is more than welcome to sing or play their instrument. They jam in a free style, or guided by covers by timeless classics like Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Prince, Santana and many more.

The alternating line-ups of the house-band are always built out of talented musicians from the Amsterdam music scene, and fellow students at the conservatory also know how to find their way to The Waterhole. Come an join, or enjoy the night with high-quality, but spontaneous music!

20:00-22:00 Jonny Smokes - Full one-man band

Full one-man band

Jonny Smokes

Some say men are unable to multitask. Jonny Smokes doesn’t just prove them wrong, he takes multitasking to the next level and far beyond. His unique and charismatic solo act is centered around live multitrack loop recordings.

At the heart of the creative process, the loop sampler pedal is surrounded by a vast array of foot activated guitar effects, vocal harmonizers, drum triggers and even DMX lighting controllers, essentially allowing Jonny Smokes to run a recording studio with his feet and activate his own light show, all in real time. Besides this impressive technical footwork, he will skillfully jump between playing both electronic and acoustic hand drums, keyboards, 5 string bass, and several different electric and acoustic guitars, all while singing both lead and backing vocals. Playing a wide variety of original compositions and popular cover songs of all styles, Jonny Smokes provides a one of a kind live music experience with something for everyone to enjoy.
