Vorig jaar waren ze nog als duo nog in onze kleine bar te zien, dat was al fijn. Maar toen we in het Sonsbeekpark Bas en Niels met complete band gezien hadden waren we om, jullie moeten nog een keer komen en dan wel zo! Wat klonk dat lekker!

B & THE PACK
The project of dutch singer-songwriter Bas Janssen.
Definition of a Pack:
A. A complete set of related items: a pack of cards.
B. group of animals, such as dogs or wolves, that run and hunt together.
C. An organized troop having common interests.”
“A Collection of songs written by singer-songwriter Bas Janssen, bundled in a pack! Selecting the best musicians and forming a dream-pack to play together and really share the common interest of music!”
The past 6 years, Bas was the leadsinger of The New Vintage Soulgroup ‘Dear Mr Man’.
After 2 albums, a lot of shows at the coolest venues in the Netherlands, support act of the bands ‘KANE’ and ‘De Dijk’ and their music being used in the 2015 tv-commercial of Hooghoudt Jenever, it is time to fulfill the next dream: a solo project with pure soulful pop-songs.
Because playing and connecting with fellow musicians is heavenly, Bas Janssen has formed His ‘PACK’ (of Wolves) in order to tell the stories right.
