21:15-23:00 BoldR - Pop

Pop

BoldR

BoldR plays originals. No covers, no realbook, but selfwritten repertoire that is a crazy mix between jazz and pop. Lead singer Rafael has written the music and plays the guitar. Furthermore, BoldR has the fantastic John Muskiet on bass, Martijn Groen on drums and Guido van den Boom on keys.

In 2017, the first album was released on all streaming services. And there are already 5 new songs in the scaffolding. So it's purr-fect! Quotes: "the whole album has a nice mix between indypop, jazz, funk and fusion, with beautiful soli on guitar and keys". Our graphic designer-by design agency ' Funkfabriek'-calls it "summer jazzy pop with a touch of fusion". Giel Beelen (open stage): "very good and very professional, worthy of radio".

Roast Apple (Ger)

ROAST APPLE is the new poster boy for honest, fresh and danceable indie pop from the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Their new EP YOUNG HEARTS holds musical, what the title promises. Four boys, all in their early 20s, who tell about their lives, loves, and celebrations of their generation.

ROAST APPLE release an energy on stage you don't see very often. You must have seen it once, as the four young northern lights with their sweaty shirts and high guitars are dancing on the stage, accompanied by disco-like drums, oppressive bass, a wall of synths and a light weight like there's no tomorrow more. By the Skanadalös Festival at the Danish border to the Expo world fair in Milan ROAST APPLE occurred on numerous stages and could earn himself Rockpalast TV appearances such as in the WDR their nationwide fan base.

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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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

20:00-23:00 The Stereotypes - 60/70/80's Rock

60/70/80's Rock

The Stereotypes

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!

23:30-03:30 Barking Bruce - Rock

Rock

Barking Bruce

These five musicians have sold their souls to rock. They all share the same love for music, which gives them a near perfect on-stage chemistry. No wonder that Barking Bruce can call themselves the best cover band of the Benelux, after winning the Clash Of The Coverbands.

The reward: a full schedule and their very own single, Lena. The band was founded from the former members of Fast Forward and 10tation, two groups from the North of the province of Antwerp, that have build quite a name for themselves for their live performances. They’ve passed on this tradition with Barking Bruce. Grunge, punkrock, hiphop, it’s all well represented in their repertoire, thanks to a solid drummer (Kris Van Meel), a nimble bass player (Guy Roelands), two dynamic guitarists (Hans Doomen and Paul de Kooning), and last, but certainly not least, a extraordinary vocalist with a distinct and exceptional voice (Jef Broes). Classics and hits are part of the setlist, but the band’s known for their interpretations of hidden gems as well.

Britrock, Folk

Residence NonAme (Ger)

Melodies and a harmonic Britrock-sound characterized the band Residence NonAme.

Britpop/Classic Rock and pop influences flow with varied songs, with some having a hymn-like character, a very distinctive sound: residence rock. This sound is reflected on their new album, released in March of this year, that their major influences as Queen, ELO, or OASIS suggests again and again.

It is worth to keep this band in mind, as they are still at the beginning of their career. And the new album is looking for more - more residence rock.
