They’re one of the best cover bands in Israel. Formed in 2009 by the unique and talented singer and acoustic guitar player Danny Savyon, who’s been a performer for forty years now.
Elad Elchanati, a gifted and experienced guitar player with nearly thirty years of experience under his belt, played with some of the best artists in Israel. He joined The Shuffle Band a few years later. Singer songwriter Yair Ziv is a guitar player and producer.
He was part of the Idan Raichel project (the leading musician in Israel today). Yair contributed his vocals on the track Boee, one of the most played songs on Israeli radio. In 2009, his successful debut album made him the most played artist on Israeli radio. The equally experienced and accomplished bass player Avi Levi, and drummer Eli Hadad complete the line-up. A true Israeli all-star ensemble!
Imagine a boxing ring.
The Black Keys smack Bowie on his good eye, Bowie squeezes Lennon in his nuts, John Jagger gives a headbutt, which Otis licks all over his sweaty face ... and for him The Black Keys go down on their knees. How that sounds? That's The Steady Itch.
The songs are originals, the inspiration is evident. Rhythm and melody stow, support and snub.
The Steady Itch are:
Mido Hamed: lead vocals, guitar & blues harp
Casper Galagan: drums & choirs
Stefan de Prie: bass & choirs
Fishing nets on the ceiling, bean bags, oil crisis and 'critical' people ... the seventies were certainly not boring ... And that certainly applies to the music! Whether you're disco was or punk: there was always something for you at. Yet it was above all the rock music that most timeless is proven.
The Stereo Types offer music lovers the ability to hear the classic pop and rock once more, old-fashioned ' live '. This formation from North Holland consists of six experienced musicians, who take you on a musical journey through time. The Stereotypes play mainly hits from the seventies, with here and there a touch of sixties and eighties. No boring songs, but party with "Come together", scream along to "Whole lotta Rosie", your feet off the floor with "Denis" or "I want you to want me" and "Somebody to love" ... The Stereotypes have it all!
The Streets-No Ordinary Rock band
Who would have thought that rock coverband in 2011 The Streets from Kerkdriel ever would get this far. Not the four musicians themselves, that is certain. A cover band with a good sound, a fine repertoire and high amount of allocation. But now The Streets are the best cover band in the Benelux! All this after winning the final of The Clash of the Cover band in Paradiso Amsterdam in 2017.
Rock coverband The Streets, born in 2011, is a 4-piece band with a pronounced taste for rock music. Not the standard classics but just that other covers are in a steaming live show fired onto you. Covers and own interpretations from the likes of Rammstein, Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Papa Roach, Muse, Korn, Motorhead, Faith no More, Rage Against the Machine and more!
The band is formed by drummer Marcel Tal and bassist Thomas Vincent. On lead vocals is Stefan Cai the charismatic leader, on guitar wonderboy Baji plays with flaming solos the icing on the cake.

Once founded by two friends who enjoyed playing music together, now The Sundown has become a seriously ambitious band.

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.
Music you didn’t know you wanted to hear. Terry Mann has seen it all. This native New Yorker grew up around John Lennon, Debbie Harry, George Clinton and The Grateful Dead.
A couple of decades ago, this bluesman settled in Amsterdam, never to leave. Terry is a true troubadour, drifting around the city. Clubs and squares have since had the privilege to see what the man has been doing since what seems an eternity. Pure blues, tongue in cheeck, that typical New York cynisism, and a whole lotta tributes to his many famous friends.
The Toasters are one of the original American second wave of ska bands. Founded in New York City in 1981.
The Toasters, are "Ska Pioneers" (Billboard magazine) and boldly go where no ska band has gone before. Having been compared to the Ramones, due to their longevity and adherence to core principles, the Toasters are held to be one of most influential ska bands out there. Their lean, mean ska machine has galvanized audiences and musicians alike with their embrace of the Jamaica-born pop music style that overwhelmed England in the 1960's, migrated to America in the early 1980s, and went global in the 1990s. The hallmark Toasters sound sits at the nexus of Reggae, Jazz, Punk and Soul and is the musical equivalent of a brass knuckle-duster.
Formed in New York City by British guitarist/frontman Rob "Bucket" Hingley in 1981, the Toasters exploded onto the Lower East Side scene. Cutting their teeth with a residency at legendary clubs like CBGB and Danceteria, the band has defied gravity and industry skeptics alike by staying true to their original 2-Tone ska roots, whilst logging over 4000 globe-trotting live appearances.
Longtime fans and critics agree, the current "International All-Stars" posse (featuring members of some of the world's greatest ska bands) is one of the most formidable in The Toasters' long and chequered history. Along with the irrepressible Bucket on lead vocals and guitar, The Beat's Andy Pearson is featured on bass. Expect to see Neil Johnson (Planet Smashers) and Tommy Quartulli on saxophone (The Allstonians), Greg Robinson (Mephiskapheles) on trombone and Jesse Hayes (Westbound Train) on drums. Special appearances by Arjen Bijleveld (Rotterdam Ska-Jazz Foundation) and Buford O'Sullivan (Easy Star All-Stars) are also to be expected in 2009. Legendary keyboardist Dave Barry rounds out the posse.
As the founder of Megalith Records (and former boss of the legendary Moon Ska Records, the most influential ska label of the 1990s) the Toasters' leader, Rob "Bucket" Hingley has a ska resume that trumps virtually anyone else in the business. With the aid and support of likeminded musicians such as producer Joe Jackson, who has worked with the band over the years, he has been able to compile a recorded legacy and a songwriting catalog. Among the many ska classics Hingley has penned: "Weekend In L.A.," "Matt Davis," "2-Tone Army," "Social Security," "Dub 56"—and the list goes on and on.
In the commercial realm, the Toasters have recorded jingles for AOL, Cisco Systems, Miller, Anheuser-Busch, and Coca-Cola, and have contributed to movie and television scores (Bleached, Bang!, MTV's Wildboyz, Mission Hill, Kablam!, Showtime's Brotherhood, etc.). Where Bucket and The Toasters truly excel, and live up to their reputation as one of the greatest bands of all time, however, is on the road. Averaging more than 200 performances a year, the band is well on its way to playing its 5,000th gig, a milestone they should achieve by the end of the decade.
Toasters fans from all over the world have known for a long time that their favourite ska band is the coolest group around, a true classic. Now, it's time for everyone else to catch up, and get hip to The Toasters!
