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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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

20:00-23:00 Non Food - Rock


Non Food

The Band Non Food was founded in 2009 by two friends, John Bruins and Heite Dommerholt. Since these two gentlemen had been active in the food industy for many years, and they were going to do something entirely different, the name Non Food was obvious. In no time, the band was the support act of two top-bands in the Netherlands: Normaal and Mooi Wark.

After that, the band focussed more on top 40 rock covers, in the broadest sense of the word. From Herman Brood till Bon Jovi and CCR till Black Eyed Peas, but everything with a tasty Non Food sauce. A highlight is their performance at the Dutch Cupfinal in 2012 in the stadium of Feyenoord where a portion of the band landed with a helicopter landed in Rotterdam and put more than 10000 frenzied soccer fans in the right mood.
In recent years the band has undergone some changes, but frontman John Bruins has Always remained as the singer. This entertainer with great enthusiasm and a dose of humor deliveres every audience a great evening. Also the rest of the band has earned their traces in the rock music, ensuring that everyone can sing along, dance along and enjoy a night with these 5 giants.

Between The Jars… that is where this young band composes its music. In 2014, five musicians from Utrecht turned the attic of a drinks wholesaler into their own studio to create a distinctive sound, inspired by the musical legacy of the 70s. With a unique voice, psychedelic keys, and shredding riffs, the music approaches classic rock with a fresh perspective. Soon after Between The Jars was founded, the band won three local band competitions, qualified for the Utrecht Popprijs, and shared the stage with artists including Orange Skyline, BADE, The Indien, and John Coffey. With more than 100 gigs throughout the Netherlands on stages including Paradiso and De Melkweg and a live performance of the single ‘One Of Them’ on radio station 3FM, Between The Jars is building a serious reputation. In February, 2018, after a long time of writing and experimenting with different sounds, the band recorded two singles together with producer Juan van Emmerloot (Snowy White, Popa Chubby, and Steve Lukather (Toto)) and signed a contract with record label TheRoomRecordings. The singles ‘Annie Green’ and ‘Long Halloween’ were released in May and June 2018, after which Between The Jars made their international debut by touring through France. There, the band played for at least 3,000 visitors at the Class’EuRock festival in Aix-En- Provence. Currently, the band is working on a second EP. Stay tuned!
