Funk, Soul

Rayn & the flavours of Soul FEAT CHAZZY GREEN (Sax)!

Rayn Bechoe is a soul man in the truest sense. His unique, though instantly recognizable soul is founded on his smooth vocals. He toured through The Netherlands, and he also brought his music to Italy, Switzerland and Japan.

And it was all thanks to his well-recieved debut record A Creation From The Soul. The album was followed in 2014, by the EP Smile, for which he worked with top producers like Rekesh Dukaloo en Eastar. On the EP, he experimented with different styles, like dancehall, funk and reggae. In 2016, his second full-length record will be released. With Back II Business, Rayn will explore everything soul has to offer, from ballads to dancefloor bangers. His band is made up of the best musicians a true soul singer can wish for.

Tonight Rayn will bring a SPECIAL GUEST: Chazzy Green will join him, all the way from Detroit. He is known as an internationally-acclaimed musician, composer and producer, and Charles "Chazzy" Green's charisma and creativity captivates music lovers of all ages.

Having achieved an early #2 hit (“I Just Can’t Control Myself”) as a member of the group NATURE'S DIVINE, Chazzy left for Los Angeles. Upon arriving, the guitar great RAY PARKER JR . took him under his wing and showed Chazzy the musical ropes, "L.A." style. Working with Parker, Chazzy contributed in 1982 to the Golden hit “The Other Woman” and in 1984 to the Platinum hit “Ghostbusters”.
He also met and became friends with gospel legend HOWARD HEWITT, who invited Chazzy to play in his band. Over the years, Chazzy became more and more sought after and performed in 1994 on MONTELL JORDAN's hit, “This Is How We Do It” (Platinum), in DJ QUICK's 1998 “Rhythm-al-ism” (Gold) and in MACY GRAY's 1999 “On How Life is” (Multi-Platinum).

Chazzy toured with the Brand New Heavies, Tracie Spencer, Caron Wheeler, DJ Quik, WAR, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Cameo, and the late legendary Bobby Womack. He is currently on tour with his group Chazzy Green & The Green Backs, The Brothers Johnson and Ray Parker Jr. & Raydio.

Get ready for the Funky Sax Man, Chazzy Green, when he comes to a venue near you. He will Sax U Up!

Franck Carducci & friends

Franck Carducci, a multi-instrumentalist (bass, piano, guitar, drums, etc.) rose in a family where music is a way of life. At young age he discovers Chuck Berry's ‘Rock 'n' Roll’, The Beatles and joins his first rock band. As time progresses, progressive rock will become his musical passion..

Between the ages of 20 and 30, he played with upwards of 20 different bands, and got involved in the recording of 15 different albums, including 2 with French female folk singer Yanne Matis. In 2008, Franck moves to Amsterdam where he gets into the local scene and performs regularly in the famous clubs of the city. He participates in several bands with styles varying between funk, soul, pop and rock music.

Then in 2010, a dream comes true: Franck opens a gig for one of his heroes, Steve Hackett (Genesis). This experience will convince Franck to focus on producing his own solo album: a genuine album, of his own, without concessions but being sincere. And there was ODDITY.

This debut album was widely acclaimed by the specialists of the genre, and it allowed Franck to tour throughout Europe. This success led Franck to release a second album – TORN APART – in which one of the highlights is the special guest participation of his mentor, Mr Steve Hackett himself.

This time Franck is back in town so he took the opportunity to gather some of his musical Amsterdam friends to join him on stage to perform the rockcovers that have inspired him.

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!
