The Waterhole Session Band is the latest project of Rene Kipuw (Jamento, Tuesday Waterhole Jam). With right we can say this is a new allstar-project we are psyched to have on stage!
The repertoire is unlimited, from 80's Disco till Contemporary Rock, from Pophits of all time till the latest Dancetracks.
Rock ’n Roll never dies but it is in a deep sleep though. We Against Us is here to shake things up!
We Against Us is an energetic hard rock band as it's supposed to sound like: dirty, thick and sexy. They stood in 2012 in the final of the Amsterdam Popprijs and they won in 2014 the Amsterdam Amstelland pop award. Their passion for 90's grunge/rock and hard rock is what drives these three guys. Although the age of the men is around 20 years, they're easy to flip to the ancient founders of better times.
We Are Covered is a powerfull coverband with it’s roots in the 60’s and 70’s rock. This 5-piece from Amsterdam will take the audience on a journey through time in which the greatest hits of this period will pass by. With a repertoire consisting of (amongst others) Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Blondie, they will grab you and won’t let you go. Other artists you will hear are Lenny Kravitz, U2 and Bryan Adams.
Frontwoman Bjorna and her men bring a performance with variety, smashing riffs, psychedelic passages and all the big hits you can sing along. Curious yet?
THE HUNTING SEASON HAS BEGUN!! We are hunters is always looking for a stage to build a party. With their catchy 2000s Pop-Rock they throw every occasion within no time upside down. We are hunters is a group of bouncing, energetic, cheerful and social men, but when it is needed, also professional.
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De muffins have been replaced by ‘Love on the Rocks’, a band in wich the multi-instrumentalist calls in the help of his –just as talented- girlfriend Marleen Hoebe.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!
Brothers Jip and Pim Frank founded the band Whatever almost a quarter of a century ago. Their attitude was - and still is - clear and simple: no bullshit, just good old rock ‘n roll. Nothing more, nothing less.
For some time now, the band has expanded to a four-piece. Bass player Jip and drummer Pim are joined by guitar player Symen Verbrugge and singer Roos Drost. The group’s now at full strength. Together, they bring their interpretations of rock ‘n roll from the sixties and seventies. Those were the times that rock ‘n roll really meant something. Songs by icons like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Kinks en Deep Purple have all managed to nestle themselves in the instantly recognizable repertoire of this quartet. Golden oldies, nobody can withstand.
Whiskey Kiss is all grown up. What started as a sweet, rockabilly-influenced act has morphed into a straight-up roots rock band with vintage flair and edgy kicks. The result is a classic backbone driven in a modern direction: Retro.Revamped.
Their new record is exactly that: the retro groove is there, but they spice it up with aggressive guitars, kinetic energy, and high powered vocals that pack a punch. The best things about this band is their versatility. Each track on the album brings something new. From “Keep it to Myself”, the powerful guitar-driven single with the deceptively pure lyrics, to “Vixen” the sexy, Cramps-influenced surf number, to “All You Need” a jumping, rockabilly tune with sprinkled swing, every song on this album celebrates the sounds of a bygone era, but makes it accessible to the modern listener.
Whiskey Kiss has been stirring things up since 2012, and have nicely settled into a groove with a revamped lineup. Niki White, lead vocals, has come into her own as a performer and songwriter. The tracks on this new record are edgier and catchier, and her vocals keep up. Her husband, Nick White’s move to guitar from bass drives this new sound: his gritty guitar tone and bluesy melodies are a great matchup. Tommy Collins, the acrobatic upright bass player, has matured as well, and this album proves his musicality is just as strong on the electric. Bruce Legge, original member, has become a multi-instrumentalist adding saxophone and flugelhorn to his trumpet and trombone skills, and Michael Robinson, drums, makes his recording debut that is driving and tasteful.
