These six Rotterdammers make music that sounds like the bustling cultural melting pot of their port city. They play jazz as if it were hip hop and vice versa, and always add a perfect dose of exciting grooves to it. Whether they are in an intimate jazz club or on the main stage of a large festival, with their mix of electronics, drums and bass, jazz, hip hop and pop they always guarantee a great feel-good atmosphere.
TIP: Before the concert, participate in the SoundLAB Groove workshop in which the grooves are already forged. 13.00 – 14.00 / Atrium room Muziekgebouw
In the concert series Groove Beest you meet real stage animals. Not only do you see and hear them, but you also feel them: no matter how old you are, their beastly grooves will shake you op. Sitting still is no longer an option. So don’t hold back – nothing is weird. Sing, dance and rap with MC Groove Beast and let the beast in you get out! Get up & move to the groove!
