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!
No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
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.
