Boathouse Jams is an Amsterdam-based powerhouse funk-collective composed of a group of high-energy multi-instrumentalists who are musically eclectic, and extremely diverse in talent & musical backgrounds. Many of them are the backbone of many touring bands in the Netherlands. This multi-talented collective was formed during COVID while none of them had gigs due to lockdown. Together, they decided to put out their instruments on Benʼs (drummer) boathouse terrace and start a summer afternoon jam. In a few hours, there were so many boats that the Amstel was completely blocked due to the crowds drawn to this unique form of entertainment. Their goal is simple; Make people go crazy and dance as James Brown did.
