LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL !!
“ Harpdriven roots, jump and old school blues”.
Bas Kleine & His Harmaniacs return to the “Beale Street Corner Feel” . A double bass, a snaredrum, harmonica and guitar and a good song. Anyone who is under the impression that blues is hard to digest, will feel converted like someone that has just been baptised. However, “The Harmaniacs” do not have a mission, but merely a goal: “let the good times roll!”.
BAS KLEINE – harmonica/vocals: A quarter of a centrury impassioned harpplayer with a.o. Sugar Mama, Albatross, No Jacks, Jean Paul Rena & Terrawheel. Still tours Europe on a regular basis with i.e. Barry McCabe , Livin’ Blues . Also much sought after studiomusician and harmonicaplayer with the legendary Dutch band Livin' Blues Xperience.
ROY van OOST – guitar (and much more)
The guitargem from Amsterdam. The Dr. Livingstone among the guitarplayers. He boldly goes where no men has gone before. Never too shy to have a go at the mandoline or flute. Musical twinbrother of Jeroen van Niele.
WILLEM DE JONGH – snaredrum/hihat
If “less is more” could ever be applied to a person, then that person has to be Willem. He puts and keeps the swingtrain into motion with minimal means. Besides leading percussionworkshops also on the road a lot with as a freelance drummer.
JEROEN VAN NIELE – bass/miscellaneous screams
Faster than lightning, quicker than his own shadow. Praises himself fortunate to have 7 fingers to each hand to keep up the battle with Willem de Jongh. Also member of Livin' Blues Xperience.
