In early 2003, as a reaction to the poor nightclub-action at that time, a group of friends and colleague-deejays  (Ir.Vendermeulen, Charley Rhythm, Wilf Plum, Eddy de Clercq, Piet Popcorn) started Amsterdam BeatClub. The very first parties where at ultra-small underground venues, but soon ABC turned out to be a huge succes and more parties came and venues grew!  

Nowadays Amsterdam BeatClub is produced by Ir. Vendermeulen and is widely considered to be an important Dutch organisation for Vintage Music, with a steady following from around the country and outside. ABC-clubnights and festivals are organised at various locations, both in Amsterdam and the rest of The Netherlands

Amsterdam BeatClub-parties often feature live music, Burlesque-shows, à Go-Go-dancers and cult veejay-visuals.. 

Expect an un-Beat-able Cocktail of the very best Vintage Music! 

Greasy Soul, Rhythm ‘n Blues, Swingin' Sixties Sounds, Horny Hammond-Jazz, Beat, Boogaloo, Twist à-GoGo, 60's Garage, Psych, YéYé, Steaming Ska, Exotica, Rock ’n Roll, BigBand-Jive and Cool Cover versions!
