Ruben Hoeke - Guitar - “A great mix of Soul, Rock, Pop, and Rhythm & Blues Boogie.” At only 35 years young Ruben Hoeke is clearly a veteran guitarist with a well established name in the Dutch blues / pop / rock scene. He has shared the stage with many national and international top musicians and acts since starting out in 1992. Since 2004 he has been carving his name into the Dutch music scene. He’s definitely among the guitarists that have taken the blues and rock to a higher level. In 2006 his band’s debut album SUGAR is released (“Tour de France”-record / Best-selling R&B CD 2006), followed by the award-winning album COEXIST in 2010. Both albums feature special guest appearances by some of Hollands finest musicians. With the two great albums aside, the band is well renowned for their fantastic energetic live performances. One reviewer described the band as “an excellent band with a unique sound” and that they “blazed like hell like an F-16 with afterburners on full”. In 2008 Ruben was elected as Best Dutch guitar player by his fellow musicians. In 2012, the band is at it again! “Best of Dutch Bluesrock” (Revolvers Lust for Life – June 2010) “Stirring, compelling, soulful… use all the superlatives you want, this world class guitarist has it all” (Brennels – July 2010) “This record swings, kicking it old school!” (Music Maker – June 2010) “Goosebumps, unparalleled beauty” (Bluesmagazine – May 2010) “Powerful and full of inspiration” (Live XS – March 2010) “The Ruben Hoeke Band is a true phenomenon! You should definitely see, taste and feel this band’s talent.” (Active) “Make sure you get to see this band live. Unforgettable!” (Bobtje Blues) “I don’t have words to do this band justice…” (VPRO) “Very good drive, exciting and energetic” (Brabants Dagblad) www.rubenhoeke.com

Ruben Hoeke Band '25 LIVE' double live-album compilation Ruben Hoeke Band '25 LIVE' double live-album available in stores, official RHB website and iTunes June8th, 2018 25 LIVE 'Recording a live album was something I had in mind for a very long time. When I started out playing guitar in the early nineties, aged fourteen, I remember mostly preferring live records over studio albums because of the more pure and raw vibe. There’s just something to it hearing a band crashing and burning and giving it’s all in the heat of the moment. Playing live is something I have lived for since I did my very first gig on the 10th of December, 1992. The excitement of playing my guitar on stage with a rockin’ band had me sold on the spot. The spark that set the flame kicked in big time. Right there and then I knew exactly what I wanted to do and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since. After having recorded nine original studio albums in various styles of music and done literally thousands of gigs, I still hadn’t recorded an official live album. When it came to celebrating my “25 years on stage” with a RHB-tour across the Netherlands the idea of capturing a show emerged again. Along the way I started thinking about a place where I liked the sound the most. Enter Poppodium Bolwerk in a place called Sneek. We actually played that venue a couple of times before and I was always very pleased by its amazing sound and vibe. On September 30th, 2017 and January 27th, 2018 technician Robin Schingenga recorded both shows. The funny thing is that he didn’t tell us he had recorded the first show until afterwards. Well, let me tell you; that’s probably the best way to capture a real live band. Since we were unaware, we felt completely free and took all the musical risks we might not have taken if we had known the “red light” was on. Well… On the other hand; you never know, but I’m glad that it’s all here - a double live album, featuring my brother Eric on heavy artillery, Mike’s pounding bass and the stunning vocals of Lucas. No overdubs, no click track, no repairs, just a steaming hot Rock ’n Roll band for your listening pleasure!' Ruben Hoeke PERSQUOTES • ‘Hoeke would kick ass among the best rockbands in the world! A worldclass starplayer.’ (Lust for Life) • ‘One of todays leading Dutch guitarplayers.’ (Platomania) • ‘His solo parts are raw, energetic and dirty. Love it!’ (OOR) • ‘Steaming hot Rock & Roll!’ (Music Maker) • ‘His guitar skill is of international stature. Time and time again he proofs to be the best blues- rock guitarist in the Benelux and perhaps even across the border’ (Bluesmagazine) Ruben Hoeke - Guitar Eric Hoeke - Drums Mike kamp - Bass Lucas Pruim - Vocals

This is the first songs form the upcoming 'Hoeke - Legacy' album which will be available December 1st. My brother and I are playing along with our late father, boogie-woogie & blues pioneer Rob Hoeke who died on November 6th, 1999. So that makes it a special album. At least, to us. :)

Hi guys, here's a little video of my band playing last friday's gig at the famous Breda Jazzfestival, here in Holland.It's a Brandin JA Personal II guitar I'm playing. Brandin....?, you might think...Well, this is a very special guitar. It's been partly designed by one of my all time favourite players; Jan Akkerman. In fact, and here's the real kicker; he gave it to me just about a month ago. Can you believe that? Such an honor, especially since this is the number one prototype. Hope you'll enjoy!Any questions about gear? Well...take a guess first :) Info @ http://www.rubenhoeke.com

Here's is a song I recorded for Agit8 which was organised by the One Campaign a couple of months ago. It's called 'Living means Loving'. We recorded it as a band in 2004 but I always prefered the stripped down acoustic version of the song. Well, hope you'll like it!
