T-99

T-99

‘Vagabonds' is the title of the new T-99 album. 13 Original zesty and sizzling tracks treated with the well-known T-99 formula...: a blend of rootsy, rockin' and bluesy elements, flavoured with Eastern European and North African influences. This new album by T-99 (known for their eclectic approach) lures the listener inside a musical sideshow where geeks, freaks, fire eaters and human cannonballs hold sway. An album that can't be missed by those who enjoy the unexpected and prefer to steer clear of clichés...

The Amsterdam-based trio uses besides uprite bass, guitar and drums colorful instruments like mandolin, ukulele, boxes and buckets. The magical interaction between vocalist/guitarist Mischa den Haring, vocalist/drummer Martin de Ruiter and upright bassplayer Donné la Fontaine is downright impressive. The strong, mostly self written originals are tasty, provoking and headstrong at the same time.

T-99 has proven to belong to the absolute top of the European roots scene of today. With the release of the album "Coo-Coo", their debut CD in 2001, T-99 convinced the Dutch- and foreign press which resulted in a non-stop flow of shows in The Netherlands. With the release of the partly in Amsterdam and Tucson, Arizona recorded CD "Strange Things Happen" in 2004 - with guest appearances of Teddy Morgan (also production) and Dave Gonzales (The Paladins) - the press could not find enough superlatives to recommend this album. The third album "Cherrystone Park" which was released late 2005 put T-99 definitely on the European map. Through the years T-99 showed itself as being a constant factor on stages across Holland, Belgium, Germany, France and Switzerland in the past few years. 'Vagabonds' is the title of T-99's fourth album.

In its existence T-99 has played among others at Noorderslag, North Sea Jazz Festival, Waterpop, Popkomm (DE), Belgium Rhythm & Blues Festival (Peer, BE), Eurosonic, Moulin Blues, Blues Passions in Cognac (FR), Cahors Bluesfestival (FR) and was support act for Dr. John, Los Lobos, Little Feat and De Dijk.
