Chill Out Session with Timo de Jong

Timo de Jong from Meppel, North Holland, is now touring for his 2nd UK visit, after a very successful 1st tour of the S.E in 2017, together with Dutch compatriot Ruud Fieten on their Double-Dutch Tour of Kent. Organised by Music Management & Promotions - Europe, they return to appease the constant questions asked by both, the friends, & fans previously made in 2017. With a voice that's a throwback to the crooners of Yesteryear, Timo mixes his 60's Country sound with hints of both Folk & Rock 'n' Roll. Since his first gig in 2014, Timo de Jong has performed over 500 times including at Eurosonic Festival twice (plus numerous others) completed a 4th Annual 10 day Tour with Convoi de Fête plus a Living Room Tour across the Netherlands. He has now released 3 critically acclaimed albums, of which the latest one was last year's "Just One Whisper". With his broad emotional vocal range, Timo creates a nice, soothing environment where you can be yourself & just listen to your heart's delight or equally join in some of his audience engagement tunes (Listen out for his Sachmo!) . https://www.facebook.com/timomuziek/ or watch/listen here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/timomuziek/videos/?ref=page_internal

Saturday Blues Club with Kit Curtis & The B3's

Saturday Blues Club with Kit Curtis & The B3's

Calling all you hipsters, flipsters and finger poppin' daddies! Grab a ride as we whisk you cool cats back to London town circa 1967. At a time when visiting Soul and R&B acts from the States were a rarity, it fell to homegrown British talent to fill the gap. Ever since the early 60s, American R&B and Soul had been in the ascent, fuelled by the burgeoning Mod scene which was rooted in the late 50s and which eventually swept out from the capital around 1964. Groups such as Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band, Zoot Money's Big Roll Band, The Action, The Birds and Who forerunners, The HIgh Numbers, entertained the capital's Mod audiences with foot stompin' high energy renditions of Stax, Motown and Chess record label classics. True blue eyed Soul at its best! Kit Curtis & the B3s truly capture the excitement and passion of the era, with their authentic Hammond led sound. This is as close as you can get to the mid 60s London club scene experienced by the original Mod generation. Now if you can't get no 'Satisfaction', we beg you (and we 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg!') ignore every 'Stop Sign', board that 'Memphis Train' and dance to the rhythm of 'That Driving Beat' like you're 'Some Kind of Wonderful'! Kit Curtis & the B3s have arrived with a whole lotta' hip shakin', soul breakin', earth quakin' rhythms and drivin' Hammond riffs, topped off with a big fat slab of Mr Curtis's soulful refrains. That's what we call maximum R&B! So get ready for a whole lotta hand clappin', foot stompin', funky-butt . . . . LIVE! And remember . . . . in Kit's world it's always 1967!
