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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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

Micha Kroese Band

Baby, here i am! The man on the scene .... is Micha's favorite song to sing!
This singer love rocking, singing and dancing on the stage. How she became a musician? As a child her great hero was Michael Jackson, she spent great time imitating him: at home with the gramophone record on, irritating her brother in the process. Of course, with a knee in the air and standing at the points of her shoes. Therefore Micha also always wanted pointed, suede black shoes.

Adviced by friends, Micha went looking for a band at age 25. With the first band she rehearsed every week and played at parties and weddings. Now she plays with fantastic musicians and Micha's permanent guitarist and good friend Bart who is actually in every band she ever performed with. Micha: "that's nice if you put together such a musical history. Going wild on stage is actually my favorite night out because I hear great music all night where I can dance to and we always make people always. Fantastic! "

Micha's musical taste is wide and the band likes to renew repertoire and try new things. So nowadays Micha is not afraid to do songs like 'give it away' or 'no diggity', with the rap of queen Pen. But a beautiful ballad by Amy winehouse or George Michael is still amazing too ... This way allows the band to offer a varying menu, party is guaranteed!
