This is a Dutch band. I think all three guys are in their early twenties.

What were those young looking blonde people in the audience in the front row with the jiggly bits? I think I heard them called ..uh..girls? Could they not see the Hammond right there in front of them? Usually that's their cue to run far away. Maybe they just couldn't see it. Yeah that's it.

Couldn't tell what he was using for organ, the body seems a bit slim to be a tonewheel model?

 

Real nice to see some proper rock nowadays, it's hard enough to find another organist down my neck of the woods, let alone a rock keyboardist ;)

aww, yeah...thanks for that, Tomkeen! :) Definitely post some more in this thread!

 

...discovered the music of this band from NJ a few days ago; not a huge fan of most of their music (too much Springsteen/Southside Johnny for my liking), but this song has a nice groove somewhere between slinky and burly...and I love it when the keyboard dude finally lays into that Hammond about 2:40 in:

go kid, go!

 

Yeah, hopefully he runs away from the drummer as far as he can...

 

There's a thing in some American praise worship - a lot of the congregations actually want that busy drumming, as it ups the excitement factor, like the Holy Ghost starting a moshpit or something. This is an American drummer named Didi Negron - she's currently playing drums in one of Cirque du Soleil's touring shows, but this is her playing in her hometown church's band:

She explains in the video's info box that she'd actually get in trouble for just playing in the pocket; I suspect that the musicians who play at that kid's church would probably get a similar reaction if they tried to just lay back in the groove.

Crazy, isn't it? Different continent, different audience I guess.

I think, though I'm not sure (at all) that it's a Hammond X5. That's pretty much THE touring organ here in Holland...

Sure :). This next vid is a project by two young guys, one of them is the same as in the vid I posted earlier. It's basically two Hammonds, "battling" each other. I saw them live at a local festival last summer, blew my mind. The one thing that really surprised me was the audience. People were going out of their minds, really cool!

Hammond X-5, early solid-state analog. Lots of punch and kick through a Leslie.

Enjoyed that Dutch trio, and the organ duo was rather swell too.

 

Question for Tomkeen: The trio seemed to be playing a festival. Are bands like that big in the Netherlands? As in mainstream big? If so, us Brits could do with learning a thing or two from you lot!

Rock on, Dawolf and Monsters! i'll politely reject the comparisons to the legends of lore. those dudes are out there rockin' their thing and kickin' some ass. Music doesn't have to be a competition and we don't need to (down-)rank order against the all time best ever.

 

Are they DP Mk II? no. who is?

 

I knew someone would need to sneak some blues and jazzy excellence into this rock thread. I get it.

The baiting I do is purely for entertainment value. Please feel free to ignore it.

They are pretty big around here. I think they tour a lot in Germany and Belgium as well. These guys get decent exposure on radio and television, so that probably helps their popularity.

 

I don't know, but maybe these bands have a big following around here because weed is legal :puff:

Just listened to everything on this thread, fun stuff! I'm actually learning that Budos Band tune for a gig in a couple ofweeks, the drummer is a huge fan and insisted we do it. I've seen Dengue Fever a few times also, they are always a blast.

 

My first instinct was to post Elephant9 on this thread, but I did some further research and found that keyboardist Stale Storlokken is only 5 years younger than me, and I'm old. But still, I love these guys:

Elephant9 are cool, would like to catch them at some point. I've seen Dengue Fever at a festival playing without any of their gear- their flight had been delayed so they had to scrounge off the other bands. Great set still.

 

Thought of a few more hard rockers, both without guitars.

 

Death Organ is Per Wiberg from Opeth and various other high profile metal projects. Death and Progressive Metal without guitars

The Apes are psychedelic garage from Washington DC. Had a few singers now, don't think they're doing much since the fourth album in 2008. Keyboardist is Amanda Kleinman, who also works as a supply teacher by day; she cool.
