Birth of Joy at CMJ

0 Comments on this event

Birth of Joy is a Dutch rock band, founded in 2005 at the Utrecht-based Herman Brood Academy. After many live performances in the Netherlands, the band was signed by Dutch indie label Suburban Records following a performance at the Zwarte Cross Festival 2011.

After further shows at the Rencontres Trans Musicales in France and the Eurosonic Noorderslag festival in Groningen, supported by Rockpalast, the group became known outside the Netherlands.

The band's music is influenced by the blues and psychedelic rock scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s, but also borrowing from rock 'n' roll and boogie-woogie.

Influenced by psychedelica, blues and steaming rock&roll this trio takes you back to the old times of MC5, The Doors and even Pink Floyd! With a drumplayer that could be Keith Moon’s son, an organist that harrases his instrument to death and a singer/guitarist that seems to be the power version of Jim Morrison, this band is bound to catapult psychedelic sixties rock&roll back into our modern times.

With over 150 shows in the past 3 years, Birth of Joy proved to be a true live-machine to be reckoned with!

Birth of Joy will be performing at the Dutch Impact Party at Culture Collide and Culture Collide CMJ alongside Traumahelikopter on the 18th of October.
