Don't Miss Saturday Night @ Hoochie Coochie!

New Cool Collective are in town and set to ignite Hoochie Coochie on Saturday night. NCC is made up of saxophonist Benjamin Herman, guitarist Anton Goudsmit, drummer Joost Kroon, percussionists Frank van Dok and Jos de Haas, pianist Willem Friede, bassist Leslie Lopez and trumpet player David Rockefeller. The band themselves describe their role division as: ‘Frank is the captain. Leslie is the balls. Willem is the brains. Jos is the fists. Ben is the founder and the style keeper. Joost is the joy and the sex. And David is Mister X and the most musical of us all.' They could not say it better.This band from Holland play some of the jazziest, funkiest stuff at home and around the globe. Ya don't believe me? Cop this YouTube track. Simply unmissable and at a mere tenner an absolute bargain.
Beats the shit out of staying in to watch X Factor or Strictly!
