“What’s really the difference when no-one notices?”
That is the motto of the Amsterdam band Waltris. Their energetic live shows goes from maniacally and chaotic to lovely and tender. By whispering till stadium-format songs. All with the overarching goal to make you join.
In 2018 they won the Dutch pop award Amstelland and the 2nd place at the Emergenza Festival in. "A band that belongs on festivals", said the Amstelland pop award jury.
End 2017, the band released their first EP: Pulse. The EP consists entirely of original songs and is self-recorded.
Don’t try this at home. This quirky cover band from Rotterdam has turned cheekiness into an art form.
Joe Madimin (leadguitar & backing vocals), Maarten Verkamman (bass and backing vocals), Ruud Verkamman (rythmn guitar and lead vocals) and Tjebbe Wierda (drums and backing vocals) like to go against the grain, but make sure there’s always more than enough to enjoy. They play for rockers, linedancers, George Michael fans, and animals. For civil servants, lively seniors citizens, men with moustaches, women with moustaches, busloads of Japanese tourists, cougars, stagediving disabled people, riotous toddlers, spoiled brats. And of course, you. Wasabi Toothpaste: spice up your party!
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.
