An Evening With The Bowery

A dream comes true: This autumn we’re playing at the theatre!

In 10 theatres throughout The Netherlands we will play songs from the ‘Broken Jars’ album, together with new songs and… lots of stories.

Check out the tour section of our website. That’s where you will find which theatre in your area we are visiting.

Below a preview of what to expect.



The Bowery is a Dutch band, founded in 2016 by Rokus Maasland and Ramon Scherrenberg. Both musicians have played in different bands and worked together as a duo for several years. Both share a passion for music with the pure sound of vocals and guitars, and the drive to make a story with their raw sound.

The name is based on a district with the same name in New York, that started with the wonderful idea of a luxurious neighborhood full of bars and theaters. It quickly went downhill and soon there were gangs and it became a mess. “Sounds a bit like the earth,” said singer Rokus and guitarist Ramon. “It was once the intention to be so beautiful, but the residents themselves have made a mess of it.” And that is how the band name of The Bowery came into being.

The bearded men do not write standard songs about love and heartbreak. No, the songs from The Bowery are about real life, as many know it: pure and with a raw edge. About doubt, pain and sadness, but also about hope and faith. Never intended to give an answer, more to share and sometimes to put something in motion in the mind of the listener.

The sound of The Bowery underlines that story: a raw Springsteen sound and delicious unpolished guitar sound, which the men do well. In May 2018 they released their debut album. On vinyl, because: “Nobody has a cassette player nowadays.”
