Nairobi Harmonica Express

The Nairobi Harmonica Express has just taken off! We've decided to set up this project after visiting the Ghetto Classics project in Korogocho in February. We've collected harmonica's for the school and will teach the kids how to play them with the help of some Ghetto Classics graduates. Now the harmonica's have arrived, we are thrilled to find out where the "Nairobi Harmonica Express" eventually will lead to and we hope it's going to be a beautiful, funny and inspiring trip for everyone involved!

Hohner Rocket!

HOHNER Music honours Steven's harmonica playing by choosing him as the face for their new ROCKET harmonica, the latest addition to the "Progressive Line". To announce the new release, they made this portrait of Steven. The Hohner Rocket is a great enhancement of the classic Special 20. Thank you Hohner!

Supports for Balthazar and Triggerfinger

We'll do some supports for these two great Belgian bands in Switzerland (Balthazar) and Germany (Triggerfinger) in April. Check our concert agenda for more info!

Safaricom International Jazz Festival was great!

We had a great time in Nairobi performing on the first "Safaricom International Jazz Festival". We got such a warm welcome and teamed up with great local and international musicians. A very special moment for us was the visit of a beautiful music project in the Korogocho slum called "Ghetto Classics". We've decided to support this project in the future! For impressions and reviews, check out our Fb-page. Here's a video-compilation made by Fredrick Kiarie.

Supports Triggerfinger and Balthazar

The Rhythm Junks have been invited by Triggerfinger and Balthazar to play some of their supports in Germany in Switzerland.

Kenya

The Rhythm Junks have been invited to play in Nairobi on the "Safaricom International Jazz Festival, a journey of a thousand miles". This will be our first concert as a band in Africa. We are very happy to take part in this festival!

Happy 2014

Bye Bye 2013. Thank you for all your support and friendship. We wish you may may, may dream and may beat your borders in 2014!!!

Some People

We've teamed up with Wouter Bouvijn and Thomas Nolf again to shoot our video for Some People. It shows Steven as a mysterious taxidermist and Jasper and Tony as hunters. No animals have been hurt during the shooting of this music video!

Germany, Switzerland, Austria

We are getting great reactions on our release in the GSA. Practise your German here: TERRORVERLAG: "Das ist einfach rhythmische Musik mit hohem Wiedererkennungswert und einem unvergleichlichen Spaßfaktor. Irgendwie cool, irgendwie schräg, irgendwie anders"; JOINMUSIC: "Beim Durchhören und Genießen wird man gemütlich in eine andere Welt verschwinden, sich am Ende etwas reifer fühlen"; MUSIKBLOG: "Eine seltsame, erstaunliche, schwer zu beschreibende Platte, die sowohl den Nebenbei- als auch Intensiv-Test mühelos besteht"; BELIEVE DIGITAL: "Der Song an sich wird in den Vordergrund geholt und verknüpft das neue Album zu einem starken Ganzen"; SRF VIRUS: "Zum Glück haben die Jungs trotz aller Unterschiede aber ins selbe Einmachglas gefunden und liefern mit Some People einen Song ab, der gar nicht sauer schmeckt – sondern im Gegenteil - frisch und süss und leicht".

We like all animals!

Sabam made a nice video of our performance at the Zoo of Antwerp.
