Dutch Britpop band Moke got off to a flying start three years ago. After releasing their first single, the five men became the resident band of one of the most popular TV shows in the Netherlands, De Wereld Draait Door, and had their songs used for two commercials. The album soon went gold (over 30,000 copies sold) and the band went on tour with Paul Weller, which confirmed their status as the heirs of Britpop.
Last year, Moke released a new album, The Long and Dangerous Sea, which has a fuller, more mature sound than its predecessor. The corresponding club tour has almost come to an end. On 12 March, you can go to one of the last performances, in the Muziekgieterij, and enjoy the energy and professionalism that Moke’s concerts are known for. The band brings a mixture of no-nonsense uptempo rock songs and more quiet songs of great depth to the stage.
