44 Shakedown was supposed to play at Rock 'n'Roll Sunday, April 3rd., but they had to cancel their show. We are very happy to have found the great Dee's Honeytones to replace the show. And we're pretty sure to see 44 Shakedown back at ABC real soon!!
Thanks to all people that supported the Amsterdam BeatClub benefit for the WiseGuyz from Kharkiv, today we put a total of E435 to the "Help for the WISE GUYZ in Ukraine"-fund. Ofcourse this will not end the terrible war, but it's good to at least do something, however small it may be. The money is very much needed, so records will still be available for E25 (ex p&p), all proceeds will go to the WiseGuys and their families.
Or you can go to the "Help for the WISE GUYZ in Ukraine" fb page, or giro 555. Thanks again people!
Amsterdam BeatClub: SUPPORT THE WISEGUYZ FROM UKRAINE!

BENEFIET MALOE MALO at PARADISO
Maloe Melo verkeert in zwaar weer en moet investeren om voortbestaan te kunnen garanderen.
Paradiso en Claw Boys Claw gaan het legendarische Amsterdamse bluescafé hierbij helpen met een benefietavond.
Op donderdag 14 juli treden Claw Boys Claw, The Miseries en Fuz op in Paradiso. De opbrengst van de kaart- en barverkoop gaat in zijn geheel naar Maloe Melo. Tussen alle live-muziek door draait dj Ir. Vendermeulen rhythm & blues en rock 'n roll platen.
Na afloop van de benefietavond in Paradiso kun je vrolijk doorgaan in het legendarische bluescafé zelf. Bij Maloe Melo draait Ir. Vendermeulen tot in de kleine uurtjes en blaast Jur op zijn trompet. De afterparty begint om 00.00 uur en is gratis toegankelijk.
WIN TICKETS POKEY LAFARGE AT PARADISO
WIN 5x 2 TICKETS (à E19 per stuk) voor het optreden van Pokey LaFarge, donderdag 07 juli 2016, in Paradiso Grote Zaal!!
Pokey LaFarge klinkt alsof hij al een jaar of tachtig aan de oever van de Mississippi zit te spelen op zijn banjo, met zijn band, die het aanvullen met onder meer gitaar, mondharmonica, viool en bas.
Het is bijna niet te geloven dat de aanstekelijke jazz, ragtime, country blues en western swing wordt voortgebracht door de groep jonge mannen met in het midden Pokey LaFarge.
Volgens hem: “It’s not retro music. It’s American music that never died.”
Voorprogramma: Ir. Vendermeulen 78RPM Extravaganza!
Ir. Vendermeulen (Amsterdam BeatClub) draait op zijn authentieke jaren '50 koffergrammofoon een selectie uit zijn prachtige 78-toeren platencollectie: R'n'B, Jazz, Big Band-Swing, Country, R'n'R, Be-Bop, Bel Canto...!
Hoofdprogramma 20.30 uur
Voorprogramma 19.30 uur
Zaal open 19.00 uur
Entree 19,- excl. lidmaatschap
We'll be back at Blues-bar #1 in the world:
Maloe Melo on July 8th.
feat. the great Hipbone Slim & The Kneetremblers and Ir. Vendermeulen behind the dj-decks!

Het optreden in 2010 was al weergaloos goed en van deze komende show in de Tolhuistuinzaal wordt wederom veel moois verwacht! Nb. voor en na het Os Mutantes-concert draait ABC's Ir. Vendermeulen een kekke set Tropicália en overig 60's vinyl !!
