MIKE TIMES MIKE CONCERTS FALL 2018
MIKE DEL FERRO VS. MIKE BODDE


After touring the theatres last spring they keep on playing this fall.
Del Ferro en Boddé are both master pianists, very open to other musical styles, notes and chords. In these concerts they take the audience on a special trip by challenging each other,. Each concert they only prepare the starting points of the music, trying to suprise themselves and the audience as well. For example the starting point will be only playing the black or white keys. Also they each choose to play a all-time favorite song and they will improvise together on classical and jazz compositions. Anyhow it’s all about improvisation and each concert will be different!
Upcoming concerts:
October 13, Piano Duo festival, Amsterdam
November 16, TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht
November 17, Porgy& Bess, Terneuzen
December 21, Lantarenvenster, Rotterdam

TOMMY GOT WAXED IN CONCERT !
SPECIAL PROJECT APRIL 11-14 2018: TOMMY MOUSTACHE X SHEEP GOT WAXED


Rotterdam-based
band Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed from Lithuania zap through extremely diverse genres in an explosive new collaboration.
The admiration was mutual when Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed crossed paths at a festival in Denmark. Shortly after that these eccentric and unpredictable bands decided to join forced on stage, resulting in an explosive and inflammable combination of two drummers, two guitarists, two sax players, a bassist and a huge stack of electronics.
The music Tommy Moustache has been described by critics as propulsive, mildly schizophrenic and heavily confusing alternative zap jazz. Sheep Got Waxed conjured similar unique descriptions, including ‘a mix of techno, footwork, Death Grips kind of trap and George Michael played by early Beatles.’ But the music also contains free jazz and metal influences according to the band members.

NEW ON STROOM ROSTER: BITCHNMONK
LIVE: SEPTEMBER 29+ 30 WIEKENT TOLHUISTUIN 24H, AMSTERDAM


This intriguing Anglo-Colombian duo Bitch 'n' Monk have been described as "hardcore Kate Bush meets rebellious Andean Jethro Tull", creating what they call 'feral ethnopunk'. Their instrumentation is a unique combination of; virtuosic Mauricio Velasierra on traditional flutes from the Andes, and pioneering soprano Heidi Heidelberg on vocals and electric guitar, producing music which The Guardian called "ingenious...you'll spend a while trying to classify them but they know how to write melodies". In 2019 they will release their new album but this weekend you can already check them out in Amsterdam during 24Hour Event

KNIGHTHOOD IZALINE CALISTER



Much to her own surprise, Izaline was decorated at this year’s annual ‘lintjesregen’. Izaline was knighted by the mayor of Groningen, by authority of His Royal Highness King Willem-Alexander. She recieved the insignia of the order in front of a small crowd of fans, friends and family. Some of them flew in from Curaçao to attend the ceremony.
Izaline was granted this honour because of her achievements as a singer composer and lyricist, being an ambassador for the language of Papiamentu and the Antillian culture, crossing the borders between and bridging the peoples of the different countries of the kingdom of The Netherlands, and for her charity-activities.
Izaline received the title of ‘Knight in the Order of Oranje-Nassau’
Read the entire speech of mayor Peter den Oudsten in Dutch (and a little Papiamentu) here.

 

MARK HAANSTRA & OENE VAN GEEL
SHAPES OF TIME


Mark Haanstra and Oene van Geel share a musical history of more than twenty years. A viola/bass guitar duo is perhaps a rare, but in this case obvious combination. Traversing eclectic music genres- jazz to classical, Indian to pop music- has led them to a original idiom. Equipped with only viola and a bass guitar, they have achieved an equally suprising contrast, with what is essentially the smallest band possible!
Their critically acclaimed CD Shapes of Time features special collaborations with visual artist Udo Prinsen and guitarist Raphael Vanoli.
LIVE:
Nov 9 Soundsclash: acoustic X electronic, Grand Theatre, Groningen

Nov 10 ROCK IT Festival, Oosterpoort, Groningen
