Time Flies is a true funk band from Amsterdam, with no less than ten band members.
Three vocalists, who efforlessly switch between lead and backing vocals, a three-piece horn section, the funkiest of guitars and keys, and a powerful rhythm section. The repertoire consists of the fattest funk, but they don’t forget about the funk-rock variety. And there’s even room for the occasional soul slow jam. In short, music for lovers of music. You can dance to it, swing to it, even clean your living room to it. One thing you can’t do: sit still to it. Tip: wear comfortable shoes.
Oh, and you can also eat at tap&dine upstairs
This six-piece is named after a Swedish culinary anomaly, consisting of mashed veg and pancakes. Yes, really. A less than ordinary blend of flavours, to say the least. Just like these young Amsterdammers.
But that’s where the comparison ends. Because we’re not talking about mashing together and deep-frying gooey leftovers here. It’s more like a fresh, yet spicy ratatouille of ambitious talent. The six musicians that form Raggmunk play modern versions of the greatest rock and pop hits from their generation. But above all, a night with Raggmunk is all about having fun on stage. Good old-fashioned fun that always translates to audiences!
Jesse Koch, one of the country’s most gifted rock-prodigies, has a fresh project lined up for you. The multi-instrumentalist and lead singer joins forces with his equally talented girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.
The couple has combined their original repertoire, as well as a lot of covers of timeless classics by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Prince, Santana and many more, to create a diverse set. The rhythm-section is in the capable hands of Nienke Overmars (drums) and Sonya Vos (bass). Both are also members of Jesse’s bands The Silverfaces and Jesse & The Muffins.
Township Rebellion is an energetic rock cover band that will go full throttle every show. Since 2015 the band is active again in the Dutch venues, bringing their enthusiasm to the public in bars, parties and festivals.
The 4-piece band consists of experienced musicians with a recognizable and sometimes surprising repertoire. The show consists of the authentic old timers by Queen, ZZ Top and AC/DC as well as the contemporary rock covers of Muse, Anouk and the Editors. Whether it is in the small pub on the corner of the street or a huge festival, Township Rebellion makes it into one large rock feast!
Still a young man, but the talented Brazilian singer, songwriter and composer Andrew Laureth began his professional carreer in music no less than twelve years ago.
He built this carreer quite meticulously. In 2003, his adventure started, with his first band Sixth Command. The next step would be A(L)titude, a Brazilian group that not only toured extensively through Brazil, but crossed the ocean to Europe. After two studio albums, and a very hectic tour schedule, which saw the band play Portugese, British, Italian and Dutch stages, it was time to stand on his own two feet. His solo debut So Much More came out in 2011. In 2014, he worked with American producer Michael Binder, which resulted in the release of his sophomore record Windows Of The Soul. During the accompanying tour, Laureth can not only draw from two albums of original material, but he’s put some great Brazilian classics in his repertoire as well. Andrew Laureth is making big moves towards becoming a big name. You can see this rising star now at The Waterhole!
Phrase is a voice-harmonies-trio created out of pure love for singing. By their natural blending and own sound, the three singersknow to perform all kinds of songs as if it were their own. They draw inspiration from different angles such as the Dixie Chicks, the Staves, Crosby Stills & Nash and The Eagles but also Fleetwood Mac and the Beatles.
When the three singers sang together for the first time in 2016, they realized that their harmony was special. Since then, they have been in many different formations and projects with each other. In april 2017 they decided that it was time for their own project. Under the name Phrase, the three totally different singers, both in terms of sound and identity, their stories blend together into a warm, colorful sound with a loaded message.
Soul singer Franklin Batta has earned his stripes. He contributed his vocals to bands of both Hans and Candy Dulfer (Hollands most famous saxophone players). Now, he’s the driving force behind a brand new project under his own name.
The many different shades of soul are what this show is all about. As the lead singer of the band, Franklin is backed by guitarist Robby Alberga, keyboard player Francisco Morales, bassist Giorgio Sitanala, drummer Liber Torriente an saxophone player Franklin Breedveld. Together, they push boundaries, enhance details and bring nuance to the wonderous world of soul music.
