It’s not a secret but we love to share it: The Jazzinvaders are doing really well. After releasing their latest album BLOW! worldwide (ps check out the free download on this website) they’re invited all around the globe to promote it and that’s exactly what they’re doing at the moment. After some very succesful gigs in september they’re now preparing for a small Spanish tour that will kick of in november. Lees verder
If you don’t like dancin’ you’d better start reading something else. Otherwise The Soul Snatchers will kick you on the dancefloor, no matter what or who you are! That’s exactely what they’ve doing over the past year out there in the clubs and now it’s on vinyl as well. Okay, have to admit it, it’s already out there for a few months but it’s too special not to mention it!
After two years of concentrated working on my bandproject “Familiy Vision Care”, I attended to my new project called “Shareholder Tom” lately. To commission a Remix of your own song, is not that easy. It is an amazaing feeling, if someone grapples with your material in a completely new way. And the eagerness while waiting for the result is almost maddening. The important thing is whom to confide your tracks. However, in our case we decided right: AIFF (Afro Influenced Funk Federation) from the Netherlands are experts like no other in transporting afrobeat and roots music into our time – without loosing a piece of the force and spirit of these wonderful influences. AIFF gave a completely different temper to Fijori “Single Warrior”, on which I’m now swimming through my everyday life for some weeks. Lees verder
Rolf Delfos is definitely one of the best and busiest saxophone players in The Netherlands. The man is doing so many things that’s it’s almost impossible to give an impression of his skills in only 1 night… but we’re gonna try it anyway. So the first ‘Rolf Delfos Club Night’ is a fact and hopefully many more will follow.
On november 1st 2008, Rolf will be performing all night with a fine selection of the groups he’s currently involved in. Zaal van Eyck in Maaseik (Belgium) asked Rolf to come over with Frank Montis, the Artvark Saxophone Quartet and – to make it even better – The Jazzinvaders. So anyone in for some great jazz- and danceable music, must come over and better not miss this night that will be remembered for a long time!
- Rolf Delfos Club Night
- November 1st – 2008
- Zaal van Eyck – Maaseik (Belgium)
- doors open: 20h

After some very succesful gigs and an outstanding performance at the well known Jazzcafe London (accompaniedÂ with a live interview at the famous BBC radio station), The Soul Snatchers are now ready to conquer Germany! They will do so this weekend as they play Cologne (oct. 3rd) and Aachen (oct. 4th). For those of you who’d like to visit them a little closer to home, you’re invited to visit The Maastricht Jazzfestival (oct. 11th) where The Soul Snatchers, together with DJ Soul Rabbi, will turn the place upside down.
It’s been a while but they are still around: The Beatclub deejays Phil Martin & Draaikolk. For those of you missing those great Beatclub dance events there’s good news: write down in your calender october the 10th cause that’s when Phil Martin & Draaikolk will be spinnin’ Bibelot again. To make it even better: Kraak & Smaak will be there as well! Lees verder
Finally it’s there: live music for the first time at the Heineken Store: deejay Draaikolk – known for The Beatclub and The Soul Snatchers – will turn Amsterdam upside down without destructing the old city centre! With his wide knowledge of African beats and Soul music, he will create an atmosphere that will remind you of the six-hour sessions by Fela Kuti. Together with well known saxophonist player Rolf Delfos – part of the legendary Houdini’s, Auratones and The Jazzinvaders – the Soul music by Draaikolk & Delfos will even make your cooled can of Heineken bubble.
Tasty beats and groovy samples by Draaikolk mixed with the licks and brains of Delfos, a combination that proved to be successful before. In short: after October 18th, the Heineken Store will never be the same and be longing for music by Draaikolk & Delfos. The music will invade the avenue! People in the store will be asking for more, D&D will change the men in the streets! Be part of it…

The Soul Snatchers gaan lekker, na succesvolle optredens op diverse festivals in binnen- en buitenland is het moment nu daar dat ze op zaterdag 20 september 2008 afreizen naar London om daar in het prestigieuze ‘London Jazzcafe‘ te spelen. Een hele eer want het programma liegt er niet om, elke dag van de week staan daar de grootste namen uit de jazz-, soul-, funk- en wereldmuziek geprogrammeerd. Kijk voor het complete programma op www.jazzcafe.co.uk
Na een wat natte en winderige zomer(vakantie) vindt van 29 tot en met 31 augustus de vijfde editie van de Wereld Jazz Dagen plaats en de organisatie is van mening dat de (inter)nationale programmering verrassend genoeg is en van alles in zich heeft om de vakantieperiode toch nog zonnig af te sluiten.
Dit jaar wordt het programma gepresenteerd op vier podia in het historische centrum van Dordrecht. Het grote podium staat nog steeds op het vertrouwde Grotekerksplein. Daarnaast vinden concerten plaats in De Grote Kerk, Bibelot en in een tent (De Blauwe Hemel) op het Sint Suraplein. Lees verder
