Jesse's Rock n' Roll Jam Night

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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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!

Acoustic Pop

Adam Tobit

This 27 year old musician hails from Essex, but calls Amsterdam his home. He’s worked on many projects over the years starting from the age of twelve onwards.

Adam Tobit is capable of playing a wide range of styles. His repertoire matches his versatility perfectly. Songs from the fifties to present day are on his rich setlist. As you’d expect from a true prodigy, he’s been singing from the tender age of twelve and playing the guitar professionally from the age of sixteen. And if all that wasn’t enough, he’s also a percussion player, who learned to play drums at a young age. This modern day Renaissance man with many faces!

Now imagine that instead of the RHCP, the Dynamic Gentlemen are playing! Wooooooowww! Mind blown!

This is exactly what the Dynamic Gentlemen have been doing in and around Amsterdam for years. Playing a mix of old and modern rock, pop and funk songs to make sure you overdrink and overshout. See you soon!

Music you didn't know you wanted to hear

The Terrymann

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.
