Room 11

Yesterday evening, we visited a performance of the Dutch band Room Eleven in the Effenaar. Room Eleven is a relatively new band (their first album was released in 2006) and consists of very skillful artists. I think it was one of the best concerts I’ve been to, and I can really recommend them. In my opinion there are not very much good bands in the Netherlands, but this one is the exception to this rule. They play a mix of Jazz, Funk, Bossa Nova and pop, but has also some influences from other styles, like gipsy music. It’s very refreshing and the passion for music really flows through the venue. The singer, Janne Schra, who apparently also write most of the music, has a very strong voice ranging from very intimate to really high notes. The other musicians, a guitarist, drummer/percussionst, bas player (who actually plays on an acoustig bass!) and keyboard player (using a Rhodes, Hohner and grand piano) are really good. I recommend buying their album Six White Russians and a Pink Pussycat.
