The Fried Seven

Old Style jazz band formed by young musicians based in Amsterdam

Brought together by a love of Early Jazz, the Fried Seven is a group of young musicians that plays exciting, swinging music inspired by New Orleans bands and the Swing Era. The band members come from different parts of Europe, with different backgrounds and languages but are united in their passion for this music. The repertoire they play ranges from Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven to Duke Ellington compositions, as well as original arrangements made specially for this band. Within this mixed program the band mixes ensemble playing with improvised solos in which each member’s unique voice gets a chance to shine.
The Fried Seven have performed in Grachtenfestival and in Jazzfestival Heerde in 2021.
