This spring a new instrumental funksound will hit your ears. Amsterdam’s seven-piece outfit The Jig releases its first album: Brooklyn Blowout, and the vinyl 7” Grindbag. Recorded in New York, the album breathes the cosmopolitan and yet warmly human atmosphere of Brooklyn, combined with true Amsterdam swagger. Elements of afrobeat, soul, rhythm ‘n’ blues and jazz are squeezed into fresh funk with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The bandmembers state: The Jig is not ‘funky’, The Jig is FUNK! The Brooklyn Blowout Release Party will be on the 8th of may in Sugar Factory, Amsterdam.
