Sven Hammond Plays Monk


Sven Hammond Plays Monk

A household name in the (international) live circuit for 14 years and in 2020, Sven Hammond continues as a rock-solid band, averse to trends and conventions. Rock, soul, blues and the steaming, throbbing spitting, cracking and intoxicatingly delicious Hammond organ sound of chief boss Sven Figee; Sven Hammond always sounds familiar but never gets bored! The new record will be released in the spring, an album with idiosyncratic arrangements of the music of jazz legend and great source of inspiration Thelonious Monk, supplemented with exciting raps from the creme de la creme of the Dutch rap scene.

Entertaining people is central and with hundreds of live shows to their name, that has been entrusted to Sven Hammond. The band has recently broadened its base with tours in Spain, Switzerland, Germany (Rock Palast!) And Slovenia, but is also 'just' in our great concert hall at Fifth. Sven Hammond plays everywhere and belongs to everyone. What you see is what you get!
