Township Rebellion is an energetic rock cover band that will go full throttle every show. Since 2015 the band is active again in the Dutch venues, bringing their enthusiasm to the public in bars, parties and festivals.
The 4-piece band consists of experienced musicians with a recognizable and sometimes surprising repertoire. The show consists of the authentic old timers by Queen, ZZ Top and AC/DC as well as the contemporary rock covers of Muse, Anouk and the Editors. Whether it is in the small pub on the corner of the street or a huge festival, Township Rebellion makes it into one large rock feast!
Tracorum's contagious musical journeying is a blend of southern swamp pop, soul, honky tonk, roots rock americana with a rhythmic diversity that adds elements of funk, latin-caribbean and gospel stomp to their unique sound. Great songwriting steeped in rich vocal harmonies and urban storytelling are the vehicle on which this powerful quartet had made their national ascent.
Tracorum has shared the stage with great acts such as Robert Randolph Family Band, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville Dumpstafunk, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Umphreys McGee, Bill Kreutzmann's (Grateful Dead) 7 Walkers, Mickey Hart Band (Grateful Dead), Anders Osborne, Leo Neocentelli and played great events like Sundance Film Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival Night Shows, SXSW, High Sierra Music Festival, Hangtown Halloween Music Festival, 4 Peak Music Festival, and many more.
"Sometimes we listen to music without really hearing it. However, when we're ready to open up and experience a thing as it truly is, well, it can feel like a baptism. What they do is rock 'n' roll but done so fundamentally right it makes you want to kiss them when they power down their instruments. This night, as the festival raged like we'd never seen before on a Sunday eve, Tracorum embodied our collective high spirits and unspoken ache at this experience coming to a close and put those elements to work in some of the best boogie-minded, straight-great rock heard all weekend. Comparisons to The Band and studio aces The Wrecking Crew flitted through my brain as I danced to the heart of this fleeting makeshift town next to my loose-limbed sisters and brothers. Every aspect was right on the money and every man showed himself a massive talent on their respective instruments, pouring soul into every note, their conviction becoming our own."
– Dennis Cook, Jambase
The experience of seeing Trainwreck Trio live is something generations will pass down to their grand children. A force of nature to be witnessed when the circus comes to a town near you!
Trainwreck Trio debuted at Tamworth Country Music festival in 2012, with a view to playing completely spontaneous shows, where the audience would dictate the song list. What just began as a late night 'jam' concept, where other musicians at the festival would also join for 'guesties', quickly exploded into a fully fledged Australian touring machine. 2014 saw Trainwreck Trio play nearly 200 shows up the east coast of Australia, with trio members 'Janis the Wreck', 'Billy Ray Simon' and 'Give Stefan Hedberg' forced to go full time on the project. The Waterhole is proud to be part of the international tour, which is now in full swing.
Female-singer Chy-Kyria has started a new project: Treasure. The group will be performing the best Funk, Soul and Disco-hits you can think off!
Together with Daniel Camacho (drums), Samir Bashir (guitar) and Peter Sid (bass) Chy-Kyria will get you dancing all night!
Treasure Rockband (or Smells Funky!) consists of a collection of musicians which keep coming back to play with one another because it is just too much damn fun. When together we play a mix of styles, but focus on today’s (brit-)pop, rock, funk, house and well- and not-so well-known classics (who can sing along with Long Train Running?). Anyway, its high-energy. You will dance, you will jump: resistance is futile.
Each member of the band has years of experience and brings something different to the table. Jurriaan is a singer/songwriter (yet to break), Fred a heavy metal guitarist while Bart’s drumstyle has roots in disco and soul. Stijn is famous for electronics and Sjoerd and Rogier are both slabbin' the bass. Why two bass players you ask? Why not!
After four years of performing live on stage, Trenchcoat decided to build their own recording studio. Stepping into the world of recording-techniques the band embarked on a journey to produce and record their own album.
The luxury of owning a recording studio enabled the band to freely experiment with a variety of old microphones, recording equipment and instruments. New songs were written and existing arrangements were re-examined. While recording, the sound of Trenchcoat evolved into a more mature, darker package.
Eventually there were enough songs recorded to put out an album. The band asked Jan Schenk (Voicst, Blues Brother Castro, The Moi Non Plus) to mix the new album. For mastering they turned to Alan Ward (Black Sabbath).
Good friend Rogier Wieland (previously responsible for the international critically acclaimed stop-motion music video “Whatcha Got”) was asked to do the artwork of the album. With the help of Ane Bang he delivered an album for which the artwork was unprecedented in terms of creativity and originality.
