“Typhoon was not as successful as Seven Eleven, an Amsterdam based funk band with roots in Uden who won the battle of best funkact at Late Summer Jazz with brilliance in a kind of home game starring rapper Are MC and singer and dancer Jewl.” (Jazzism, October 2015)

Friday Theater Markant was visited moderately, but Saturday night it was a full house, mainly because of an attractive lineup with Typhoon and Seven Eleven.
