“When the deaf hear and the lame dance we know we are getting something right” says founder, tenor sax and flute player Rob Berends. The Amsterdam band was formed in 2003 although the eight members have enriched the local soul and blues scene for years and played with the likes of Jimmy James and the Blue Flames, Alton Ellis, Rico Rodriquez, Rude Rich and the High Notes, Hans Dulfer, Wally Tax and the Brass Babes. Juicebox, anchored in the sounds of the legendary Stax and Kent labels, gushes popcorn from its first CD - Popcorn 69 - and shows why it is fast emerging as one of the most exciting line-ups on the European club scene. The band has played in Dutch venues such as the immortal Paradiso, De Melkweg, Vrije Vloer, De Kring, Club Vegas, The Sugar Factory and Fietsfabriek Juicebox are: Rob Berends:Saxes,Flute; Tobias Breekveldt:Vocals, Percussion; Rob de Lange:Guitar; Julien Kummer:Organ,Wurlitzer piano; Ruud Kleiss:Trumpet; Mechteld Bannier:Baritone Saxophone; Mirko Sikolovic:Bass; Emanuel Wiemans:Drums More info and dates @ JuiceBox Myspace.
