Friday September 2nd De Pul presents two concerts by excellent live bands that also enjoy popularity outside The Netherlands: Tristan and Seven Eleven.
The music of Tristan can best be described as ‘feel-good vintage Acid Jazz ‘ with funky guitars, fender Rhodes, cool synth sounds and a rhythm section whose members play together since 2000. This gives leadsinger Evelyn Kallansee a solid foundation to shine like never before. The music takes you directly back to that crazy seventies sound. TOTO guitarist/vocalist Steve Lukather is one of the many fans of Tristan. When he heard the music for the first time last year he said: “The best of the seventies brought` to 2015.”
Seven Eleven needs no introduction in Uden. Rapper Are MC and star bassist Dodge are well-known citizens. Last year Seven Eleven presented their eighth album ‘Back to the Source’ at the Melkweg in Amsterdam and toured in The Netherlands. When they played at the Late Summer Jazz Festival in Uden, Jazzism wrote: “Even more successful than Typhoon was Seven Eleven, an Amsterdam based funk band with roots in Uden. The battle who could play the best funk was won by Seven Eleven who did this brilliantly in a kind of home game with starring rapper Are MC and singer and dancer Jewl.” Also nothing but good reviews in the media about the new album by Seven Eleven. Seven Eleven is looking forward to present ‘Back to the Source’ at De Pul in September.
On December 19th funky town Uden celebrates X-mas in De Pul with Seven Eleven presenting their new single/videoclip ‘Disco wasn’t good enough’, followed by a live concert! The evening starts with DJ FUNK PRESIDENT and the young and talented Funky ORGANizers from Dordrecht. Free cd-single for every guest!
Seven Eleven and the successful British soul/funk formation Incognito know each other since both bands released an album on Challenge Records. Incognito’s bandleader and guitarist Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick loves the funky sound of Seven Eleven and wrote in 2012 on our MySpace-page: “I’ll continue to let folks know about your band.”
This summer Seven Eleven en Incognito will share the stage for the first time: on July 19th at the Pleins Feux Festival in Bonneville (France). In november the bands will funk up several clubs in the Netherlands:
Nov. 14th Luxor Live, Arnhem
Nov. 15th Tivoli, Utrecht
Nov. 17th De Pul, Uden
