“Although my raps are often about back in the days, I am someone who always keeps looking ahead at new projects and initiatives” says Seven Eleven rapper Are MC (in the ordinary life named Coen Grooten) in the Brabants Dagblad. With local friends Are MC started Musical Center Uden; a partnership network of independently operating parties in the music industry to encourage making more music in and around Uden.
“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)
Today Seven Eleven played an accoustic version of ‘Back to the Source’ in radioshow ‘Dit is de Dag’ (This is the Day) on NPO Radio 1.
According to the Brabants Dagblad the second edition of Late Summer Jazz Uden was successful. 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. Singer Berget Lewis, accompanied by the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, also attracted a big audience.
