Music that sounds like cheap whiskey: sharp, filthy, but intoxicating.
Jesco is a four piece band from Utrecht, The Netherlands playing what they like to call folk ‘n roll music!
Jesco plays a variety of genres, from Delta blues to punk to American folk music, with a rock ‘n roll attitude. Singing songs about every imaginable madness of the mind, they attempt to chase folk out of the attic and blow the dust off with a thumping rock ‘n’ roll beat, hammering blues, primitive bass and the honest energy of punk.
Bringing together instruments such as banjo, washboard, a bell, harmonica, steel chains, accordion, double bass and drums to craft what’s best described as “Filthy Folk ‘n’ Roll”. Jesco’s stories are mostly about the madness of the mind and the tragic denizens and outcasts that stumble around and within us. With a dark sense of humour, they hope to invite the audience to relate with, laugh about, or be appalled by the characters and tales which inhabit the melodies.
They began to play for the stage as well as the street, fully amplified, acoustic and anything in between. In the summer of 2017 they did their first tour through Ireland, scraping by, busking and playing pubs! While there, a new acoustically inspired EP was recorded, which was released early 2018. Shortly thereafter drummer Loek van Oijen decided to leave the band, and Victor van den Hende stepped in as percussionist on the washboard.
