Nijmegen is famous for a four-day long March which is organized every third week in July. Now is Mother Bass which is a hard rock / alternative rock band from Nijmegen that might march towards glory and fame? Mother Bass has now released their debut that disc is self-titled.
Drummer Roy Veltien (Full Nelson), rock tenor Daan Dekker (Armed Cloud) and bass player Roel Van Erp (Ernest van Aaken Band) had been playing in the Dutch live circuit for several years. Then came the outsider – guitar player and songwriter Friso Woudstra. Suddenly all talents and ingredients were there to start a band that brings everything they like in music together.
Mother Bass plays a hard rock sound that encompasses Zeppelin, King Crimson, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots. When they play their intense live show there are no gimmicks or crowd pleasing, no sing-a-long clichés, no trendy sounds. The band wants musicality, performance, originality and strive to achieve a timeless rock sound.
