One of Juanita’s favourite shows of 2017, Mr. Boogie Woogie returns for a high-energy, highly entertaining show of hard drivin’, old school Rhythm & Blues. Hear the amazing killer Boogie Woogie, by the fastest, flashiest, piano-thumping boogie man from the Netherlands.
Yes, that’s right. This Dutch based, drive by piano player hits hard and will take no prisoners! As soon as he starts pounding the ivories, you’ll be on your way to the Land of Good Times.

”We can definitely say Mr. Boogie Woogie is not an acquired taste. His enthusiastic piano attacks are instantly accessible. He starts playing, you start smiling.” C. Graham - Tucson Citizen

Mr. Boogie Woogie (aka) Eric-Jan Overbeek was born on April 5, 1967 in Nieuw-Vennep, the Netherlands. Mesmerized by that old piano in the living room, Eric-Jan began studying classical piano at the age of eight. He demonstrated early an extraordinary talent for musical arrangement and got his first job at age twelve playing piano as an accompanist for dance classes. In April 2011 Overbeek was voted Best Dutch Blues Pianist 2010. A title he was nominated for again in 2013. He also won the prestigious title of Best European Blues Pianist 2005 in the company of the many of the world's best blues artists.
Don’t miss this one!
