Mr. Boogie Woogie
Boogie Woogie Piano
Hard drivin’, old school Rhythm & Blues, complemented by some killer Boogie Woogie, by the fastest, flashiest, piano-thumping boogie man from the Netherlands. Yes, that’s right. This Dutch based, drive by piano player hits hard and will take no prisoners! As soon as he starts pounding the ivories, you’ll be on your way to the Land of Good Times. Mr.Boogie Woogie (aka) Eric-Jan Overbeek was born on April 5, 1967 in Nieuw Vennep, the Netherlands. Mesmerized by that old piano in the living room, Eric-Jan began studying classical piano at the age of eight. During his 30 year carreer he has opened the stage for international giants of blues like Matt "Guitar" Murphy, Johnny Copeland, Van Morrison, Koko Taylor, Magic Slim and the Teardrops and even The Blues Brothers Band.
