The Hippo Brothers bringen puren Soul, Funk, Latinjazz und Boogaloo auf die Bühne. Miss Beulah ergänzt die achtköpfige Band aus Holland mit ihrer wundervollen Soulstimme und ihrer energetischen Performance. Ihre Stimme wird nicht ohne Grund mit der von Sharon Jones verglichen. Die Musiker spielten bereits in Formationen wie Juicebox, The Mighty Typhoons, New Cool Collective, Rude Rich & High Notes und Bongomatic. Gerade erst brachten sie Janet Jackson „What have you done for me lately“ als grooviges Cover heraus. Inspiriert werden sie u.a. außerdem von Willie Bobo, Sharon Jones, Marva Whitney, Mongo Santamaria, Jimmy Smith und James Brown. Tanzen wird sicher jeder, wenn diese Band loslegt.

Originated from a shared passion for raw soul, early funk, latin jazz and boogaloo, the musicians already earned their tracks in bands like Juicebox, The Mighty Typhoons, New Cool Collective, Rude Rich & High Notes, Bongomatic, and performed at all the hot dutch festivals and clubs. With the presence of tenor sax, trumpet, Hammond organ and piano, guitar, bass, drums and percussion, these gentleman will enter the stage with some ultimate grooves, together with the wonderful soul singer Miss Beulah. Miss Beulah is considered as the Dutch Sharon Jones with her soulful voice and energetic performance. The Hippo Brothers featuring Miss Beulah have just released the tune What Have You Done for Me Lately, a Janet Jackson cover in a groovy new sound package. Some inspiration sources: Willie Bobo, Sharon Jones, Marva Whitney, Mongo Santamaria, Jimmy Smith, James Brown and many more.
