1st price 'Cappuccino' Dutch National Radio 2013!!
2015 will bring an album with all original Busquitos songs!
The Busquitos play a very catchy mix of brilliantly played music and dazzling, funny entertainment that will put a smile on everyone’s face!
The Busquitos play their merry jazzy tunes, sung with an impressive Louis Armstrong like hoarse voice…. And if the time is right, they will mingle, wireless and play a serenade organize a limbo- or line-dance or get the audience to sing along to one of their catchy jazzy tunes. High class entertainment for the youngest (colouring sheets and a grab-bag) up to the elderly (Mac The Knife, Tico Tico…)
The Busquitos are:
Jelle van Tongeren (winner of “The Golden Satchmo!”, Hot Club De Frank)- violin and Thomas Streutgers (winner of “The Big Boss Award”, Big Jay Mc Neely, JZZZZZP, Rude Rich & The Highnotes, The Soulsnatchers)- saxophone . Two brilliant instrumentalists who have been showing their skills on stages all around Europe and beyond…
To round out this swinging quartet, they invited guitarist Daniel Versteegh and bassist/vocalist Ronald de Jong (nominated for Holland’s best blues-bass-player 2010, Big Jay McNeely, Shane Mac Gowan, Boyd Small) to join them.
The Busquitos play a large variety of music that goes back from anywhere as far as the 'roaring twenties' until yesterday. Hot Club, Jazz, Pop Rock&Roll, Classical Music, you’ll hear it all! Songs by Disney, Django Reinhart, the Mills Brothers, Sonny Rollins, and Irving Berlin, just to name a few as well as catchy tunes as Yackety Sax (Benny Hill), The Love Boat, The Flintstones, The Nanny, Bonanza, Rawhide… etc etc.

The Busquitos have proven their skills on the streets, parties and pubs, as well
as on big stages at jazzfestivals . International performances in Holland, Belgium,
