BAKKELIET was born in a tiny village on the Dutch/Belgian border. Calling them a coverband is almost dishonoring for these 5 men. Bakkeliet is so much more than that. A more than excellent band with a singer with a towering charm and a voice like a clock and you get the ideal recipe for a night never to forget.
This band plays flawlessly on the public, with covers that go from Kensington to the Foo Fighters to return to BZB or Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren. After having played literally in every place in their close environment they decided to conquer the ' Clash of the Cover bands '.. and how! After the first regional trophy in house was won, the figurative icing on the cake followed a few months later with the victory of "best cover band in the Benelux".
The future for this level-headed boys is bright. the Netherlands will find out how this band can catch you off guard with their energy. You don't see or hear Bakkelie... you experience it!
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

A Different Thread brings together three unexpected collaborators; Singer-songwriter Robert Jackson from Lichfield Staffordshire, Isaac Collier, a classically trained cellist from the Yorkshire Moors, and , Alicia Best a singer/fiddle player from North Carolina.
The trio have their own contemporary take on what Americana music is: They play what they are calling ‘British-Americana’ pulling from the roots of traditional American and British music alike, weaving together aspects of country, blues and folk with classical undertones and a hint of bluegrass.
Jackson’s songs tell tales of adventure, bitter romance, and synchronicity with ‘thought provoking, well crafted lyrics’(Gordon Giltrap) and a ‘strong, soulful voice’ (FATEA magazine). Alicia's tight harmonies harken back to ages past and the mountain ballads of Appalachia, while Isaac's astute and often improvised cello lifts their music up with an impulsive edge.
The four guys of Riptide perform together for a year now and bring contemporary pop/rock songs based on their personal experiences and feelings. On stage this translates into a high energy-performance in which dynamic limits will be explored.
This was demonstrated during their debut performance in a full Dr. Ink in Eindhoven where the foursome managed to convince the public. In addition, the band has released a number of acoustic concerts and also a living room acoustic video recorded via the post sessions. Currently the guys are working hard on preparations for their first EP and they aim to realease it this year.
TSOP [skg] is the self-titled project of Nikos Tsop (Deep in the Top, Balloon Over Glasgow)

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!
The idea arose after 20 years of performing in the cover circuit, and the meeting of Brian Frasier-Moore (drummer of: Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake). A cover band with the same vision, and appearance as the great American shows from the likes of Rihanna, Usher and Justin Timberlake.
The idea began in 2006 and in 2008 the raw/first version of Kinda Black jumped on stage. But was nowhere near what it later would be. For 4 years, the project stopped, but in 2012 the idea was converted in actual act with the necessary auditions, rejections, criticism but also many words of praise.
After a year and a half of auditions, Kinda Black for the first time entered the studio .... ready for a journey with love, passion, determination, vision and musicality. After a number of months rehearsing they finally gained a dance crew conducted by choreographer: Ruben "Chi" Verhoeven.
The repertoire is ready, the show created so it is time to perform! ... Kinda BLack would like to see you on one of the concerts.
