Pub Crawl | Friday, August 18, 2023 |

The pub crawl on Friday has been a regular part of Amersfoort Jazz for many years. With the support of the Stichting Ondernemers Amersfoortse Binnenstad (SOAB), the hospitality industry is resurrecting the pub crawl this year. This year, various locations are participating in the pub crawl that will be held on Friday 18 August.

The Newts

The work of The Newts is peppered with jazz influences, but is effortlessly mixed with electro, funk, balkan beats, dance and west coast. Analogue sythesizers, horns, electro sounds and fat solos determine the sound of instrumental pieces, while they sometimes suddenly dive into the pop corner.
