The love for live music is the greatest common denominator among the members of Re:Freshed Orchestra . And you hear and feel that. This Rotterdam funk, soul & hip-hop collective of young musicians (strings, wind instruments and rhythm section) with very diverse musical and cultural backgrounds is turning the Wilhelminaplein upside down. Of course you’re there!

About Re:Freshed Orchestra

Re:Freshed Orchestra started its career in 2011 by organizing a ‘tribute series’ to various musicians’ heroes such as Quincy Jones, Nina Simone, J Dilla, Fela Kuti, Gil Scott-Heron, Sly & the Family Stone, The Wu-Tang Clan, Guru and Jay Z. This resulted in the EP “Re:Encore”. The album was a tribute to and reappraisal of the music of rapper and entrepreneur Jay Z, colored by his own arrangements and compositional additions. The EP (2012) brought the band to 3FM, Noorderslag & North Sea Jazz, quickly becoming one of the highlights of the 2013 festival season.
