For a couple of years now, Tinez Roots Club has been roaming the scene with their raw and high energy mix of greasy rhythm 'n blues, gravitatingly grooving soul, jazz licks and wild rock 'n roll. With two honking saxophones, a deliciously grooving Hammond organ and wild-beating drums, they make audiences shiver and rooms rumble.
*In the summer of 2011, Tinez Roots Club releases its first full album worldwide. It’s rough, it’s smashing, it’s pedal to the metal and they call it… Almost Nasty.
*Martijn ‘Tinez’ van Toor – Tenorsax superhero with a razor sharp and heartwarming sound. Bandleader and composer of 100% of TRC’s repertoire. Also known for his work with a.o. CC Jerome, Nick Curran, Ian Siegal.
*‘Shouting’ Koen Schouten – Specialist of all that is low, deep and big. He and his baritonesax are known for their work with a.o. Caro Emerald, The Jig, Hans Dulfer and many rhythm ‘n blues bands.
*Wolfgang 'Wolf' Roggenkamp – One of the few people in the world that tamed The Beast, i.e. the Hammond B3. Although it even lets him call it his baby, it still sounds wild under his hands. Also a great drummer. Worked with among many: Kai Strauss, Jimmy Glasmacher, Massada, Jan Akkerman.
*Henk Punter – One of the most intense and protrusive drummers in European rhythm ‘n blues. Makes the groove live like there’s no tomorrow. Known for his work with a.o. King Mo, Memo Gonzales, T-99, Clemens van der Ven
