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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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!
UnXpctd, a R&B cover band for Soul, Jazz, and Dance, consists of 5 enthusiastic and experienced musicians with a great love for music.
Drummer Peter, bassist Mark, keyboardist Stefan and guitarist Erik put down a solid base for Bieuwke to sing to. Saxophonist Carolien makes for delicious soul sounds and rousing solos! The band loves to things slightly different, they are not called UnXpctd for nothing!
Midnight Experience is a no-nonsense Classic rock-band. A performance of Midnight Experience is sweaty, full of enery and very cool to witness on a festival, party or at night in the pub.
The 5 members perform a set of Classic Rocksongs that made you wish you were back in the good old days of the transistor radio. Insane drums, pumping bass, screaming guitars and smooth vocals: the band is ready to rock!
SPIT was formed in the summer of 2008 and is forged from a mutual love of the back bone elements of nineties rock music: gritty vocals, heavy guitars, a tight rhythm section and just a touch of aggression. Just a touch...
Their shows are energy packed, hard hitting and memorable and this has resulted in a track record they’re rightfully proud of. Since the start we have played hundreds of shows. Seven years into the journey that is SPIT we still have the same passion and energy and continue to expand our skills. Combining original material and ‘spitified’ covers we are able to bring the SPIT to any venue. Come see them if you don't believe it! We dare you.
Allen Wrench & the Nuts is a trio that brings you a unpolished mix of swinging blues, surprising classics, honest rock and handcrafted original songs, straight from the heart.
The shows are based around enthousiasm, experience and pure love for playing live. They’re not in the least intersted in what would be ‘suitable’ or even ‘hip’. They simply play authentic, crafty tunes, showing an honest love for music in general. Dominik P. Sprenger (guitar and vocals), Ed ten Hoedt (bass and vocals) and Mozes Wolff (drums and vocals) combine blues, jazz and timeless classics in a fantastic way.
