When Montis, Goudsmit & Directie take the stage, you’ll know they’ll set the house on fire. Their shared love of funky souljazz brings three stage animals together in a sizzling liveshow. The energetic guitarist and Boy Edgar Prize winner Anton Goudsmit, the fiery drummer Cyriel Directie and groove machine Frank Montis on Hammond produce a killer live set that will dance from classics by Grant Green, Eddy Harris and The Meters to their own compositions and wild improv.

The three men met at a jam session in Amsterdam, where they discovered their stage chemistry was undeniable. With experience ranging from Gare du Nord and Ploctones to Candy Dulfer and Kane they single-handedly sold out their album presentation in Paradiso in 2019 and toured around pretty much every stage under the Dutch sun. On August 13, it’s our turn at Amersfoort World Jazz Festival for their next release – let there be groove!
