Description / biography
The, and according to experts, 'one and only' Real Deal Chicago Blues Band in and around The Netherlands.
Robbert Fossen and Peter Struijk have both individually and together accompanied various American blues musicians, including John Primer and Tail Dragger. (Tail Dragger can in The Netherlands be booked with the Fossen & Struijk Band.)
The Fossen & Struijk Band consists of four members who revive the glory days of the Chicago Blues in the 60s, 70s and 80s and are influenced by among others Muddy Waters and Magic Slim.
Jan Markus and Eduard Nijenhuis, who as The Dynaflow also accompany other musicians, shape the rhythmic foundation of the Fossen & Struijk Band.
As a duo Robbert and Peter are the winners of the Dutch Blues Challenge 2012 and subsequently reached the finals at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis as such being the first Dutch blues act ever to achieve this.
Furthermore Robbert was the winner of the Dutch Blues Award 2014 (category vocalists).
