For his own Rob Mostert Hammond Group, Rob carefully selected a fine group of talented and creative musicians to play with.
The core line up includes Chris ‘Buckshot’ Strik on drums, Jurriaan Suring on guitar, Efraim Trujillo on saxophones, Michael Simon on trumpet and Michael Rorby on trombone. Rob Mostert is the main man, with the virtuose yet soulful way he plays his traditional Hammond B3 and his impressive foot bass solo’s, he owns the stage.
Together they make a professional band with proven international potential and a spectacular sound. Or, like the Flemish jazz magazine reviewed: ‘If you want to add fireworks to your festival you have to invite the Rob Mostert Hammond Group’ (JazzMozaik).
The sound can vary from steamy soul/blues to groovy jazz and sexy funk but always with a leading role for the mighty Hammond.
For the first Rob Mostert Hammond Group album ‘Go Big Or Go Home’ Rob worked together with gifted vocalist Charlotte Coppola. In the series of Hammond Battle theatre shows, the band plays with guest musicians Sven ‘Hammond’ Figee and Carlo de Wijs.
Over the last years the Rob Mostert Hammond Group has played festivals and jazz stages in Holland and Belgium. A highlight was the invitation to perform 4 shows at the Rochester International Jazz Festival, Rochester US (2014).
