Live Jazz Music ♪
Although the backroom is occupied some evenings of the week, you can rent the backroom for rehearsal, party or meeting. You can contact us, for information.
Every tuesday: live jazz with Aart van Bergen & friends.
This orchestra consists of advanced amateur-musicians. The repertoire is simple Latin-American, African (Senegal and Zaire) as well as Balkan- and Klezmer-music (Big band setting). For example: bolero, cha-cha-cha, son-montuno, mambo, cumbia, calypso, merengue, kaseko, bomba and rumba. All the musical-arrangements are by Dolf himself. During the rehearsals special attention is given to: timing, dynamics, balance, tuning and communication while playing simple exercises. Within these arrangements there is room for improvisation.
There is room for: drums, percussion, bass, piano, accordeon, guitar (just one of each instrument) and saxophone, trumpet and tuba. For other instruments contact Dolf. Participants have to be able to read music, have a reasonable sense of rhythm and have to be motivated.
