Editor’s Choice – Sven Hammond 10th year Anniversary Concert

September 24 at 21:00 CEST


On Friday, September 24 at 21:00 CEST, it's time for our monthly Editor’s Choice: a Stingray DJAZZ editor presents their personal choice to the public! This month's selection is the 10th anniversary jubilee concert of the Dutch band Sven Hammond, recorded live at Paard van Troje in The Hague! 

A word from our editor about Sven Hammond:
“This Sunday evening, Stingray DJAZZ is the place to be if you want to complete your weekend with greasy funk, the raw and distorted sound of Sven's Hammond organ (with Leslie, naturally), and a sizzling spectrum of special guests, including Jett Rebel and Spike (of Di-rect fame). In all frankness, this isn't your textbook example of jazz – but this dazzling combination of funk, soul and rock will take care of all your musical needs. And we haven't even mentioned the fabulous 'clash of the Hammonds'...!”

Sunday, September 24 at 21:00 CEST | Sven Hammond: 10th Year Anniversary Concert

The band Sven Hammond used to be known as Sven Hammond Soul. Although the name has changed, the members have remained the same, with Ivan Peroti (vocals), Sven Figee (hammond/keys), Tim Eijmaal (guitar), Glenn Gaddum Jr. (bass) and Joost Kroon (drums). Sven Hammond creates greasy funk and soul, featuring Hammond grooves, pop and jazz. This steaming music and show machine is headed by Sven Figee, who prefers to attack his Hammond organ rather than play it. In this broadcast, they celebrate their 10 Year Party, and a funky show is guaranteed!
