Concert Review | Gimme Gimme Frank Znort

One year ago, on a Sunday, somewhere in Oslo, I ran into a fantastic band. The band's energy, humor, and particularly its varied music, drew my attention. The musicians called themselves ‘Frank Znort Quartet’. A quartet? There were over 15 people on stage!

SXSW 2018 – Hot Takes & Outtakes

It is bleary-eyed yet energized, and with enough new business cards to warrant a dedicated carry-on, that Frédérick Ranger, Stingray’s Vice-President, Product Marketing, returned from a week-long journey into the belly of the massive creative beast that is the 2018 South by Southwest Festival (SXSW).

Concert Review | In heaven with HAEVN

Paradiso was sold-out in Amsterdam on February 23, 2018. Why? That was the day HAEVN presented the music of their debut album Eyes Closed: a wonderful combination of film music, electro-pop, and meaningful lyrics.

We Gotta Be Funky!

What a pleasure it was to see the collaboration between the greatest Dutch funk band and the greatest saxophone player of the Netherlands, Amsterdam Funk Orchestra and Benjamin Herman!

The concert started off with a couple of songs from Amsterdam Funk Orchestra, composed by bandleader Efraim Trujillo. A good warm-up for the audience! Varying from one funky song to the other, it gave various instrumentalists the opportunity to play a solo. This made me appreciate not only the collective sound of the band but also the virtuosity of each individual player!
