Bio

Juicy Jones is a band that makes an inspiring cross-over of funk, disco and soul. Frontman/singer Paul Veerman and bass player Janjaap van Eerten founded this band from Utrecht (NL) in the summer of 2010, naming it after a juice bar located in Barcelona. Complemented by three friends with a musical background and education, it appeared to be a winning combination with an impressive repertoire of danceable (disco)funk and soul.

The inspirations of Juicy Jones are very varied. For example, a link can be to the stirring funk beats of Jamiroquai and work of Q-Tip. Sometimes the sounds of bands like Maroon5 can also be heard in their music. Consisting of drums (Daniel Gort), bass guitar (Janjaap van Eerten), keys (Leon Wybenga), guitar (Koen Zinnemers) and vocals (Paul Veerman), Juicy Jones distinguishes themselves by making an energetic and very danceable set. They don’t hesitate to vary in a song by using different music styles and are able to create soulful, more low-tempo grooves without losing any energy on stage. Every song is developed with precision and because of the varied musical influences Juicy performs timeless music in an era where a lot of styles can be discovered.

The first time Juicy Jones really presented themselves on national radio was at 3FM, at the beginning of 2012. They were overwhelmed by extremely positive reactions of listeners and DJ Gerard Ekdom, a very prominent person in the Dutch music industry, was also very enthusiastic about their performance ‘on air’. Later on, other national radio stations like Radio 6 and Slam FM were visited by Juicy, they performed at several well-known festivals and made it to several finals of band competitions. Besides their shows, Juicy Jones is currently working on their first EP at Earforce Studios, the label who signed them for a first publishing deal. Their first single will be released in November, together with a new video clip.
