About artist

Netherlands Den Haag

Blues rock band from the Hague area, founded more than 11 years ago by frontman and guitar virtuoso Bas Paardekooper. Powertrio Paardekooper stands for energy, fire in every performance.

Passion and musicality radiate from the stage. A solid rhythm section that makes the band look like a house. Compact songs interspersed with subtly executed blues rock ballads in which the fantastic guitar playing of Bas stirs you to tears. In addition to the sublime guitar work, Bas also has a great voice that touches you.

Together with bass guitarist André de Bruijn and drummer Roel van Leeuwen, these guys give every performance really everything! This of course has not gone unnoticed within music-loving Netherlands, but also outside the borders such as Belgium, Germany and Sweden have had the opportunity to become acquainted with their power and energy.
