Ooooh! Yesterday we played our last show of the year in The Oosterpoort, Groningen. (Where we did our very first show 3 years ago at the Noorderslag Festival). Unfortunately our show in Alkmaar has been cancelled, so now there's one show left for us: january 30th in the City Theatre of Leiden. Hope to see you all there!
In 2011 the debut album of Job Roggeveen ‘s project Happy Camper was the start of a buzz. With a ridiculous amount of singers and a white yeti called Manfred, Happy Camper toured The Netherlands. They did a sold out tour, shows on the festivals Noorderslag and Lowlands and even toured Indonesia.At the ending of a wonderful year the projected was awarded with a prestigious Edison Award. Now The Daily Drumbeat is here.
The Daily Drumbeat is an album with songs about one theme: the rythm of daily life. Can you keep up with it? Is the rythm way to fast?
Or are you doing a little dance to it? Job was inspired by film scores, french chansons and Vaudeville. He used a lot of different instruments, like tuba, trumpet, clarinet and violin.
And again Job invited a whole series of great dutch singers: Janne Schra, Tim Knol, Marien Dorleijn (Moss), Odilo Girod (Coparck), Bouke Zoete, Eefje de Visser, David Pino (El Pino & the Volunteers), Ricky Koole, Appel, Helge Slikker, Lisa Meijntjes and Maurits Westerik (Gem).
Happy Camper wouldn't be Happy Camper without the animated music videos, by studio Job, Joris & Marieke. Manfred the yeti is nowhere to be found this time. In the new video there's a group of striped creatures trying to keep up the pace of a fatal game of musical chairs. background:#F4F5F7;mso-ansi-language:EN-US">
