Showcase NEWb Bookings
NEWb Bookings is always on the lookout for new artists so that they can expand their database to help them climb up in the music business. Last Friday, Bookings organised a showcase at Pisculentis for several bands to show of their talent. Each were given a half an hour to own the crowd. Though the turnout was a little bit dissapointing, it could not stop the very diverse six bands from rocking the stage! Here’s a small atmosphere impression of the evening.
We are proud to say that this singer-song writer actually is a fellow student. She opened the evening with her jazzy laidback sound. As introvert, as she may seem in person, she knows how to take the stage. Her lyrics are sensitive and pure, fragile but convincing. With songs like, ''The world is falling apart'', and ''Mad Mirror,'' she showed the audience a little bit about herself. Jazzlara definitely has that natural glow what you can translate back in her music. She has an own specific sound and gives us every reason to say, that she’s a true artist.
Musicians, comedians? Let’s call them a mix. With their lightly sarcastic humor and one particular song in Dutch, they actually were pretty funny. With not a lot of audience to work with, they managed to bring in some happy faces. They even blew up the speaker while doing a cover of 'Rise Against', ''Hero of Wars''.
From Heavens Expelled
Boy o boy what a hell of a show these guys gave away. There ain’t nothing average about this style of music. From Heavens Expelled is a mix of heavy metal combined with rap and hardcore grunge. As you can see on the picture, they even brought their own fans that went wild in their own moshpit. It was obvious that most of the audience was not used to their type of music, we gotta be honest. They might left us all with a hearing disorder, but they were absolutely taking their performance to the max! Inspite of the tough crowd they truly rocked the stage.
The moment Allison played their first accord while starting off with a guitar solo with the song 'Big Fur', an international vibe came down and had the audience hooked. Experience was dripping of the band members. We can keep it short when it comes to this band: freakin’awsome!
Chaos Club is all about dubstep. A genre of electronic dance music that originated in south London. It may be described as overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals. It’s not the type of music to stand still on and so the Chaos Club was making it very hard for the audience to stay in their seats! Very big plus, the performance did not only existed out of one computer, they where hitting the drums and using their vocals live!
They stand for alternative, grunge and a rock type of music. Heavy guitars, and smooth solos. Divine Rebellion even played longer than they were supposed to. A very experienced band that knows how to put their heart and soul in to their music.
