FRESH - EXPERIMENTAL - UNIQUE
Bag Of Bones is playing originals and some covers in their own special way, far from the traditional path!
Fresh, experimental and unique.
Jongkind's style of playing is captivating, hypnotizing and constantly moving in unexpected directions. Just when you are locked in the tightest riffs imaginable, he releases you in a whirlwind of lyrical elaborations, only to blast your ass with the fiercest of solos just when you were getting all dreamy and comfortable. The man does it all, does it constantly and best of all, makes it look eazy.
The other magic ingredient in Bag Of Bones is Austrian bass player Daniel Lottersberger. There is something real steady and real funky about the way he drops his groove.
He steers away from obvious showmanship, and stays right where it matters: in the blood red pumping heart of things.
Niels Voskuil's drumming is tight and innovative. Niels is indeed the engine of the band - here’s a fundament to be reckoned with.
Bag Of Bones mainly play songs of their own. They pay homage to their heroes, but never without giving the songs a creative twist. They got the skills to do it; all of the players are clear virtuosos. It’s all about the music. It’s all about things coming together on stage, grooving, improvising, finding the essence. Yes sir, like a Bag of Bones.
In 2015 the trio delivered their first album Under My Wings, a collaboration with American veteran vocalists Baatin (former Parliament-Funkadelic) and Pamela Bowman (Betty Wright, SOS Band).
Featuring BAATIN & Pamela Bowman
Baatin and Bowman board a plane for the bigger festivals. Smaller gigs get the core version of Bag Of Bones. Jongkind is a gifted singer and as trio Bag Of Bones allows itself plenty of room for improvisation. You might catch a little funk, they might even weave in a note or two of Flamenco, but the solid core of the matter remains that rare brand of uncut bluesrock that makes you want to howl along.
Don’t hold back, they surely don’t
