Dear all,
What a fantastic ABC Weekender we have had! I'm sitting here in a completely messed up ABC office still shaking. It looks like storm Poly has wreaked havoc in here.
But we can say: This! Was! Great!
From the crazy happening on Saturday in De Nieuwe Anita, with the frenzied Los Moustros del Espacio Exterior from Mexico, via the sold-out ABC Beat-Boat Canal Cruise on Sunday afternoon, hitting a bridge on it's way, and followed by the release party in Concerto with the superb Jansen & de Vries 4tet, to all the beautiful performances in Paradiso, with icing on the cake a blistering finale of all artists on stage, during the spontaneous superjam on Bonnie St. Claires' "I Surrender" ..it was all big fun!

A big THANK YOU is in order here: for all artists, deejays, locations, porters, merch sellers, technicians, caterers, photographers, confetti blasters, button turners, floor managers, beer tappers and of course to you, the loyal ABC audience!!! I'm really proud that I've been able to do this for so many years and hope to be able to tie it in for a few more. Many photos and videos are coming in. If you have something nice, please send it (wetransfer) to info@AmsterdamBeatClub.nl, I might edit a nice aftermovie of it :)

We already sold stacks of the new ABC doubles last weekend. If you don't have it at home yet, it can be ordered from us for E35 + shipping costs, just send a message.
For now, have a nice holiday as far as you have it. This Friday we are at Retro su Mer in Belgium, a highly recommended and very nice vintage festival from my buddies at Radio Modern! check out their entire weekend program here: Retro sur Mer
In September we will have ABC in DNA again, more news soon. 

All the best for now and big Beat-greetings,
Ir. Vendermeulen / ABC x

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 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
