Coherent groove oriented energy is what gives TRUNK its bite. This 4-wheel drive moves over every harmonic and metric terrain possible! TRUNK. is about funk and danceable rhythms, jazz-complexity embedded in smart appealing compositions and strong live performance. The band’s innovative compositions are deeply informed by boundary-breaking greats such as Rudder, Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew and Medeski, Martin, and Wood’s spirit of jam-based improvisation, all of which inspire their dynamic live shows.


Iman Spaargaren (reeds) is a very active front and sideman (Young VIP Tour 2012), playing in many bands (Iman Spaargaren Undercurrent, Thelonious4) on both national and international stages.

Wolfgang Maiwald (keys) successfully tours with his jazz trio (Wolfgang Maiwald Trio) and played with many jazz greats such as Jesse van Ruller, Ellen ten Damme and Rick Margitza in The Netherlands and abroad.

Dave Sahanaja (electric bass) plays with jazz funk group Captain Hook and was one of the leading members of Horns of Plenty.

Franc auf dem Brinke (drums) tours extensively in Europe with Deborah J. Carter, Toon Roos and Christian Hassenstein.
