The New Manhattan Big Band
A band of all trades!
Music on a high level, that is what this formation from Amersfoort aims for. 18 driven musicians, a fantastic singer under the leadership of a professional band leader. The band features a wide repertoire that varies from well-known jazz standards, swing, funk, blues, latin and movie music, but also whisper soft ballads and smashing up-tempo songs. And more challenging pieces are not avoided.
Mid 2016 the band entered into a collaboration with 4FUN. This group consists of four ladies from Amersfoort. They make music from the 70s, 80s, pop, soul and easy listening. A feast of recognition, because who does not like the music of The Doobie Brothers, Earth Wind & Fire, George Benson, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, the Pointer Sisters and many others.
At the request of the Dutch Armed Forces, 4FUN has deepened in the repertoire of the Andrews Sisters in recent years and developed that to a special act. This proved to be a success formula! During the celebration of Operation Market Garden (70 years of freedom) 4FUN has received many invitations of Defense to perform their Andrew Sisters repertoire. During these gigs, the Ladies draw the full attention of the audience through their enthusiasm, appearance and performance.
