Bird Song Alley

Bird Song Alley is a two-man band from Groningen comprising John de Jong (keyboards and hammond organ) and Dick Rietveld (guitars and double bass). They’ve played together for 15 years. The band’s name is inspired by the street name (a literal translation) where they practise: the Vogelzangsteeg in Noordlaren. The original music brings many styles to mind: jazz, pop, rock, latin, but usually has a bluesy ring to it and it can’t really be filed under one denominator.
