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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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!
Rosita Loth & The Travel Light Band is a Coverband that performs a wide arrange of styles in their own way. Guaranteed a musical night you will remember!
Common Royals is a pop/rock band that focuses on catchy rock covers. Think of bands such as The Foo Fighters, Wolfmother and AC/DC, but also covers of Melissa Etheridge and Skunk Anansie are not shunned. In short Common Royals stands for an evening of rock with passion!
Common Royals started as a collaboration between Peter kattenburg and Paul Franks. Quickly it became clear that this cooperation had a future. This resulted in a search for good musicians to give the band the quality it deserves. With Marieke van Zwieten has Common Royals attracted a hell of a singer. Nowadays the rhythm section is in the hands of Martijn van Eeden and Paul Franks. To give more body to the sound a second guitarist was attracted: Joost Hofstede. And the band has found its present form.
Still a young man, but the talented Brazilian singer, songwriter and composer Andrew Laureth began his professional carreer in music no less than twelve years ago.
He built this carreer quite meticulously. In 2003, his adventure started, with his first band Sixth Command. The next step would be A(L)titude, a Brazilian group that not only toured extensively through Brazil, but crossed the ocean to Europe. After two studio albums, and a very hectic tour schedule, which saw the band play Portugese, British, Italian and Dutch stages, it was time to stand on his own two feet. His solo debut So Much More came out in 2011. In 2014, he worked with American producer Michael Binder, which resulted in the release of his sophomore record Windows Of The Soul. During the accompanying tour, Laureth can not only draw from two albums of original material, but he’s put some great Brazilian classics in his repertoire as well. Andrew Laureth is making big moves towards becoming a big name. You can see this rising star now at The Waterhole!
Once founded by two friends who enjoyed playing music together, now The Sundown has become a seriously ambitious band.
These five experienced musicians work hard around the clock to keep improving their skills. The Sundown play a mix of rock, blues and pop. Their very characteristic approach to both old and new cover material, as well as their original songs, ensure a professional and entertaining performance! The Sundown now play regularly in the Amsterdam area and the band is also working on their debut album.
Nineties stadium rock that you’ll rarely hear this good. The Amsterdam coverband Waste takes audiences back to the haydays of Guns N’ Roses, Radiohead and Metallica.
But you’ll find much more on the huge repertoire of this four-piece. U2, The White Stripes, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Lenny Kravitz can also frequently be found on the setlist. The band was founded by a group of friends, who organised a weekly jam session in the rehearsal space of Rock Supplies in Amsterdam. Nowadays, singer / guitarist Ramon van Loon, lead guitarist Onno Postma, bass player Peter van der Linden and drummer Charles Doornbos play regularly in the greater Amsterdam area. The formation reached national success when they reached the final of the renowed Clash of the Coverbands competition.
Soul, funk and disco band DEKSELS! is a cover band from Delft and gives a stunning performance at the Waterhole! It’s hard not to start dancing on these funky tunes. Classics like Earth, Wind & Fire Prince and Kool and the Gang, everything will pass by to give you a groovy evening. See you at the Waterhole!
2Hot2Funk is a collaboration of four local session-musicians, who played together in countless projects in the Amsterdam area and far beyond. With this one, they keep the funklevel high, with plenty of room for classics.
Frontman Gregorio ‘Gregosaurus-Rex’ Rangel is the bass player of the notorious Amsterdam band Mosquito, Venezuelan metal band Laberinto and many other groups. In this 2hot2funk-formation he takes up the role of frontman, singing the lead vocals. Santanico-frontman Marco Toro’s one of the finest drummers you’ll find in Amsterdam. He and Gregorio take care of the rhythm section, Marcos Gomez completes the group on keys and vocals, and the leadguitar will be played by the one and only Pablo Minolli, de ex-guitarplayer in Laberinto, Ali B and Brainpower (amongst others). An eclectic allstar-collective with a great arsenal of material: classic rock, reggae and soul are all laced with some fat funk.
