20:00-23:00 The Stereotypes - 60/70/80's Rock

60/70/80's Rock

The Stereotypes

Fishing nets on the ceiling, bean bags, oil crisis and 'critical' people ... the seventies were certainly not boring ... And that certainly applies to the music! Whether you're disco was or punk: there was always something for you at. Yet it was above all the rock music that most timeless is proven.

The Stereo Types offer music lovers the ability to hear the classic pop and rock once more, old-fashioned ' live '. This formation from North Holland consists of six experienced musicians, who take you on a musical journey through time. The Stereotypes play mainly hits from the seventies, with here and there a touch of sixties and eighties. No boring songs, but party with "Come together", scream along to "Whole lotta Rosie", your feet off the floor with "Denis" or "I want you to want me" and "Somebody to love" ... The Stereotypes have it all!

23:30-03:30 Dynamic Gentlemen - Rock

Rock

Dynamic Gentlemen

These four distinguished twenty-somethings started the band Dynamic Gentlemen in the summer of 2013. Because it’s important to have something to look at, the suits of this dashing four-piece are always as tight as their sound.

To perform is to enjoy yourself. This is what shines through in the group. The only thing they don’t take lightly is the music itself. In the writing proces, they constantly look for a balance in tempo, force and subgenres. Even within the songs themselves. They mix rock with influences from funk, pop and even classical music. Lyrically, they deviate from clichés more and more. Their songs used to be about love and heartbreak. Now, they’re not afraid to tackle subjects like loneliness, war and the meaning of life. But this makes their show anything but melancholic. Their combination of good music and showmanship makes their gigs exciting, memorable and extremely energetic.

23:45-01:30 Stillmode - Poprock

Poprock

Stillmode

A brand new act, but one with plenty of experience. Stillmode, the band that was formed from the remains of pop-rock band KinKobra, is starting anew. They have a fresh sound and are motivated to the teeth, ready to conquer the world. First order of business of the formation, led by frontman Pasacal Molenaar: the catchy single Outside World.

The band worked with the renowed producer Arno Krabman (Within Temptation, Waylon, Niels Geusebroek). The songs have a big dose of Jack White, a pinch of Placebo, a few drops of Prince, but above all the power to nestle itself in your ear and don’t let go. That’s what you call hit potential. If anything, they’re putting in the effort. ‘This band is a serious, even more ambitious one than KinKobra’, says Pascal. ‘We’re going to take it as far as it will go. To conquer the world’, he jokingly claims. ‘But above all, we’re going to play ‘till we drop. Festivals, concerts, and record a bunch of new tracks. There are no boundaries’, At the moment, Stillmode works with Arno Krabman on their debut EP, which will be scheduled for release at the beginning of 2017.

Jesse's 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!
