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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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!

Koeks & friend

The perfect way to get the evening started. Koeks, an international, but typically local artist that play accoustic versions of well known rock standards, will put you in just the right mood.

Arjen Koeks has played with his band Spit countless times before in The Waterhole. What’s more, this notorious cover band has been a fan favourite for years now. Frequent visitors and an ever-growing fanbase has seen them perform right here. Tonight, it’s time to take it down slightly.

DIS Band Live

DIS Band Live is de afgelopen jaren een begrip geworden en zorgt op elk feest voor een fantastische avond met een zeer gevarieerd muziekaanbod.

De show is goed uitgebalanceerd waardoor een diverse mix van swingende medleys, knallende rocknummers en rustige ballads ontstaat.

Doordat populaire hits, klassieke meezingers en Nederlandstalige knallers elkaar in snel tempo opvolgen, spat de energie van het podium en ontstaat een spetterende show.

Elke feesttent, kroeg, zaal of plein wordt door DIS compleet op zijn kop gezet en komt het publiek van jong tot oud volledig aan zijn trekken.

DIS Band Live is niet meer weg te denken op kermissen en festivals in Noord-Holland, maar speelt ook veel op bruiloften en besloten (bedrijfs)feesten.

Nadat DIS in 2014 een finaleplaats behaalde in de Clash of the Coverbands en optrad in de Melkweg is de vraag naar de band nog verder gegroeid.

Wij zijn dan ook erg trots dat onze “olievlek” zich in snel tempo verspreidt en we optreden tot ver buiten onze eigen regio; Zuid-Holland, Flevoland, Friesland, Groningen en zelfs op Ameland heeft men al van DIS mogen genieten.

Na afloop van een optreden van DIS Band Live is steevast de reactie van het publiek; DIS is te gek!

Local Boyzz

The LOCAL BOYZZ is an explosive energetic, dynamic and flexible partyband thet knows how to make a party, get the public on their feet and will not stop until everyone has gotten the feeling they are part of the show.

Spice Girls, Bon Jovi, Ghostbusters, Europe, AC/DC, Dirty Disney and Backstreet Boys, it guarantees that everyone will dance, want to sing along and won't leave till the end, because in this party world full of beautiful babes, glamour and Rock'n Roll there is simply a lot to see.

Fully decked out in 80 's Glammrock-style with tight leggings they enter the stage and at larger shows they even bring the ' scarsely dressed ' dancers from their bedrooms!
On many festivals, local Festival tents, regional Village Festival, student party and hockey party the band left behind a trace of intense eargasms behind. These four incredibly sexy and uninhibited projectiles unleashed on a stage ... Don't miss them, for they never miss
