Offbeat is a musicians’ collective, formed by four band leaders: Bob Wijnen, Ellister van der Molen, Jens Kerkhoff and Mick Paauwe, presenting individual projects as well as group initiatives. The power of Offbeat lies in its members, who complement each other as both artists and entrepeneurs.
We organized our first event in the Amsterdam Badcuyp, with the Bob Wijnen/Dezron Douglas Duo, the Romanian Jazz Collective and the Unity project. At conferences like Jazzahead, we show the world our events, our individual projects, our musicianship and our way of bringing people together. And on April 2 2017 Offbeat will present their first event in a series to come, in cooperation with the Fruitvis in Rotterdam. At these events, we’ll look further than music only. Visual arts, inspiring talks and dishes that stimulate the taste buds will make your concert experience a more complete one! Our first event is all about spring: the promise of bloom which is yet to come. To find out more about this event and to order your tickets, click
