Thorltd

Durk Albert Kooistra was born on the sixth of june 1984. Since he can remember he has had a passion for music When Durk turned 13 he got a Djembe from his parents. After that he saw how his brother learned to make music on a old notebook or should I say laptop. Not equipped with a sound-card, his brother was forced to use a printer card to get some form of tones out of the machine. The love for obscure sounds was triggered. Jazz artists like Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Stan Gets, Medeski Martin & Wood, Anyone from the marselis family all inspired Durk in his electronic approach of jazz. In 2006 he had his first gig as Thorltd, 2007 many more gigs, festivals and radio appearences

MUSICIAN Born:

Lunch With Beardo

"Without Lunch, Life Would be a Mistake" Not much is known about the bizarre fringe group known as Lunch With Beardo or the small quasi-religious cult following closely associated with their numerous public appearances, also known as "sightings." The young alien types who attend their public gatherings report that the group regularly visits from the Planet Lunch to spread a message of hope, food, and facial hair. Little else is known specifically about the group and much of the information that sources do have come from scratchy bootleg-quality cassette and CD-R releases unearthed from unnamed sources by the decentralized, self-proclaimed "art-terrorist" independent label FDH Records

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
