We're EXP, the Amsterdam three piece rock band around Guitarist/Singer Karst van Oosten, highly influenced by the great blues rock and proto-hard rock bands of the 60s and 70s, like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, but also by blues legends like Albert King, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, BB King and Buddy Guy, and by R&B and funk artists like Otis Redding, Sly and the Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown and Johnny Guitar Watson.
Beside that we also have some more modern influences like Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Black Crows, Rage Against the Machine, Wolfmother and Triggerfinger. In short bands and artists that play in the tradition and with the craftsmanship of the greats of the 60s and the 70s.
We play original songs as well as covers by above mentioned heroes and notably our Hendrix tribute.
At the moment we offer three sets:
1. Our tribute to The Jimi Hendrix Experience (3 hrs)
2. 60s/70s Blues Rock & RnB cover set (4 to 5 hrs)
3. Original songs (about 15 minutes, working on more)
You can book us for each of those three sets or a combination.
