The Reaction is a Dutch nederbeat/garageband that is inspired by Q65, the Outsiders, the Who and the Pretty Things.

You can describe their sound as raw sixties garage with ripping vocals,banging drums, catchy riffs, throbbing bass and a haunting philicorda organ.
The Reaction released a 10 inch titled “Action with The Reaction”. All tracks on this record are original recordings. Their second release was the 7 inch single “Go Wild”, which was written as themesong for the anual Go Wild! festival. The killer track ‘Thunder” is the b-side.
The band already played great shows in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
This show will be part of the releasetour for their new record!

Go catch them live at Amsterdam BeatClub for a rousing experience full of dirty nederbeat!

I’m feelin’ great.. on Route ’68!


Friday 8th June 2018

Amsterdam BeatClub at Paradiso Upper Room

live: The Delta Bombers (VS., Wild Records)

dj's Ir. Vendermeulen & Tiki Jan spin their favorite 50's/60's wax!

The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world for 10 years. Driven by a hybrid of 50’s rock and roll fused with swampy blues, country, and rockabilly.

The hard touring band’s haunting but powerful voice Chris Moinichen keeps the sounds fresh and always from a new angle.

Andrew Himmler on Guitar, Gregorio Garcia on Bass and Kirk Highberger on Drums sway the dynamic up and down all night long with one mission: make it interesting.

The goal of the band has always been to build something people who wear gabardine, denim, or mohawks could enjoy together. Based on their tour and festival history they are doing just that.

The Bombers have set foot in over 26 countries and toured every corner of the USA with bands like Reverend Horton Heat, The Blasters and the Legendary Shack Shakers.

Supported by four studio albums and non-stop touring of the USA and Europe, what started as a teenage dream has now come to fruition as a worldwide rock and roll expedition.

The Delta Bombers continue to strive for the fringed ends of roots music always looking toward the next song and the next show.

A show that should be witnessed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of American roots music, the Bombers will be playing at Amsterdam BeatClub in Paradiso on June 8th.!


Entrance E10

Amsterdam BeatClub starts at 23:30, right after Meschiya Lake & Dizzy Birds!
