Urban Soul Band is a fresh, contemporary band that operates at the cutting edge of (new) soul, funk, jazz, pop and r&b. The band has a passion for the groove and that is reflected in the carefully-made own compositions. USB also plays gems of covers by lesser known artists such as Sharon Jones, Bernhoft, Tristan and all Stone and there is room for own edits of tracks by better-known artists such as Selah Sue, Beyonce and Michael Jackson. In short: music that touches the soul, you'll move and you leave with a smile on your face.

After 2 years the VENHILL Rock Band is ready to rumble. A lot of messing around, playing some more and a sold-out Release Show in Gebr. The Nobel, the image of the band is now formed. A face that is describes as Grunge-Rock meets Psych-Punk. Hard, raw songs with feeling for catchy hooks and a bashing punk-heart.
These are decorated with psychedelic trips and find their depth in narrative texts, melancholic melodies and even complete surrender. The Psycho-love baby of Soundgarden, John Coffey & Royal Blood.
Bathed in a raw haze of trippy sounds you hear sharp Grunge-Punk Riffs. Behind space effects, female singer Jaro shows the rear of her throat, supported by edgy-backing vocals. VENHILLL rmashes, spits, pushes, pulls and shrieks without losing focus. Moshen, jumping, screaming along or dream away. VENHILL want you to do all that you want, because that is what they do.

One of the standout rockabilly acts to come out of the rockabilly revival of the early 1990’s, Voodoo Swing’s first album, “We’re Usin’ Code Names” was released on the legendary British rockabilly/psychobilly label, Nervous Records. This stellar first effort brought Voodoo Swing to the attention of roots music fans all over the world. Their sophomore album, “Well, Okay Then,” released on Holland’s “Rockhouse” label continued the momentum that Voodoo Swing was building all over the world. In 1998, personal circumstances lead to Voodoo Swing ending that era, with the three original members going on to do other musical projects.
