Amsterdam BeatClub is known for promoting the sound of The Golden Era of Music: the rare and beautiful lost treasures of the 50’s-early 70’s. These parties often feature live music, Burlesque-shows, à Go-Go-dancers and cult veejay-visuals.
In 2003, as a reaction to the poor nightclub-action at that time, a group of friends and colleague-deejays (Ir.Vendermeulen, Charley Rhythm, Wilf Plum, Eddy de Clercq, Piet Popcorn) started Amsterdam BeatClub. First starting out at ultra-small underground venues, Amsterdam BeatClub soon turned out to be a huge succes and with that more parties came and venues grew. Nowadays Amsterdam BeatClub is produced by “The Dynamic Duo” Ir.Vendermeulen and Charley Rhythm and it’s widely considered an important Dutch organisation for Vintage Music, with a steady following from around the country and outside.
At Amsterdam BeatClub you can expect an un-beat-able Cocktail of the very best Vintage Music: Greasy Soul, Swingin’ Sixties Sounds, Rhythm ‘n Blues, Horny-Hammond-Jazz, Beat, Twist à-GoGo, 60’s Garage, Psych, YéYé, Steaming Ska, Exotica, Rock ‘n Jive, and Cool Cover versions!
Many great bands and artists have performed over the years: The Sonics, Big Jay Mc.Neely, Arsen Roulette & The Drugstore Cowboys, Os Mutantes, Hullabaloo, Dee Ann & the Nightcaptains, Sue Moreno, The Ragtime Wranglers, The Reno Brothers, The Phantom Four, WestHell 5, Messer Chups, T-99, The Five Aces, to name just a few.
Often theme-parties are organised where the crowd dresses completely up to the dresscodes: 20’s Depression / Western / Burlesque / Soirée Francaise / Space-Age / Tiki / Psychedelic / Spy-Fi / Halloween / etc.
And now, on Nov.6th, it’s time to celebrate Amsterdam BeatClub’s 7,5 years anniversary with a GRAND PARTY at Paradiso Bovenzaal!
ABC-deejays Ir.Vendermeulen and Charley Rhythm will be spinning the best Vintage Wax from their extended record collections, beautiful and rare cult-visuals will be show on the big screen and 2 top surf-bands will play live sets: The Messer Chups (Russia) and The Anacondas (Amsterdam). On the same night The Anacondas are celebrating their 10th anniversary with the release of their new album “BadBuzz” !
