Besides being a freelance musician I am playing in a couple of fixed bands that can be booked:
This is a brand new quartet of mine, for which I’ve spent the last months writing new music. I started writing, not knowing what general style my music would be. Turns out it’s best to be described as a warm and exciting mix of Jazz and Hip-Hop! My work is mainly inspired by Roy Hargrove, Robert Glasper and Louis Cole. Besides the band (me + 3) I always try to bring a new special guest.
THE SUNNY SESSIONS
Together with Ike van Bergen on keys, we play a long repertoire of jazzstandards, as well as some famous popsongs that we put in a new jacket. Wether you are looking for cozy and warm background entertainment or something more vibrant. We are experienced and able to adapt to every kind of setting.
Inspired by Gallowstreet, Lucky Chops and Anomaly, Kris Kraanen and I started a new brassband, presenting you some of the most talented young brass-musicians from Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Since our big debut in Paradiso (2018) we have blown away the audiences at major venues/festivals like Eurosonic Noorderslag, Amsterdam Dance Event, North Sea Jazz, Oerol and AFAS Live! We are about to launch our new EP!
