Original roots music from the southern parts of Holland, with influences ranging from rockabilly and rock 'n roll to blues and rhythm 'n blues, up to some 60's vibes and twanging' country music. That's Supersonics in a nutshell...
"If you're not doing something different, you're not doing anything"
- Sam Phillips (Sun Records)
This quote has real truth to it, which led to the founding of Supersonics as a band.
Doghouse Sam and his magnatones (BE/NL)
Over the last years Doghouse Sam & his Magnatones got themselves quite a unique reputation with their instantly recognizable sound, re-interpreting the good ol’ Rhythm’n’Blues vibe. They won the Belgian Blues Challenge in 2015 consolidating their fearless reputation having an eclectic sound that simply can’t be found anywhere else!
Doghouse Sam writes and performs songs with a lot of heart and gusto. His music style, steeped in the sounds of early Rhythm’n’Blues, found a dedicated audience and yielded lots of positive press. Furthermore Sam pulls it off to bring something fresh and original to the table in a scene that isn’t that big on changes. “My style of playing isn’t about big arpeggio sweeps or stuff like that. What I dig is the more primitive/brutal approach and try to come up with strong songs that aim directly at the heart. ”: says Doghouse Sam, who has been in bands since he was 16. As a trio, Doghouse Sam & his Magnatones deliver a solid show… each and every time!
In short, these guys are all about heart, honesty and hard work on stage.
It'll be hard to keep your toes from tapping.

De Albatros heeft een lange geschiedenis en is nu nog steeds een druk bezocht café op het Beursplein.
Als je achter de bar staat en kijkt in de spiegel die bij het raam hangt kun je de scheepvaart op de Westerschelde zien passeren. Je zou De Albatros een bruin café kunnen noemen. Bruin is de overheersende kleur van het meubilair maar ook van de koffie die er geserveerd wordt.
Kortom een gezellig café waar voortreffelijke hapjes en royale borrels worden geserveerd.
