There is a live BANDNIGHT every first Wednesday of the month!
HOPSPOT Bandnight with Duende
May-Day Sway-Day! The acoustic trio Duende plays favourites from the gypsy jazz, latin jazz and American songbook repertoire. The music from gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club de France are a big inspiration, but Duende also let itself be inspired by the contemporary heirs of Django, such as the Rosenberg Trio. The group was founded in 2015 and consists of Carlo Gentenaar on the lead guitar, Mick Verwij on the rythm guitar and Ruben Heimans on the contrabass.
The name Duende can best be described as zeal, the enthousiasm of the musician who puts the soul in the music. The swinging music of Duende will sweep you off your feet!
As always, we'll start the evening off with a beginner's level drop-in class, welcome to all!
19:40 - 20:30: Drop-in class taught by the awesome teachers Rohan and Pita!
20:30 - midnight: Dance Dance Dance
With DJ Rohan!
