Peter Beets Electric Band

Peter Beets is regarded as one of the best jazz pianists in the World. With his successful performances and beloved arrangements of classical music, he has built up a still growing fan base over the years. His trophy cabinet includes an Edison (2010)which is the Dutch equivalent of a  Grammy, the Prix Martial Solal (1998) and the Pall Mall Export Swing Award (1988). Beets delivered a range of excellent jazz albums, including Chopin meets the Blues (2010), Beets meets Rosenberg, Tribute to Django Reinhardt (2018) and Our Love Is Here to Stay, Gershwin reimagined (2019).

Besides the classical piano, Beets also likes to play the electric piano, especially the Fender Rhodes. Half a century ago, this instrument caused a minor earthquake in the music world. Jazz musicians also started experimenting with the new sounds that the Fender Rhodes had to offer.

On Saturday evening, September 4, Peter Beets and his Eletric Band will play characteristic compositions from that periode in the TOBACCO Theater, including work by Herbie Hancock and Freddie Hubbard in the leading role. The Peter Beets Electric Band guarantees swinging grooves and interplay and improvisations at the highest level.
