The band Lefties Soul Connection has performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival once before. In 2008 the band was playing near the entrance of Ahoy to warm up the audience for a long festival day. But the Amsterdam band's fame has grown over the past four years. This summer the band will be playing in countries like France and Spain. They are considered one of the most energetic garage funk and soul bands in Europe. In Rotterdam this year, they won't be playing near the entrance but on a "regular" stage. The four-member band will be joined on-stage by guitarist Paul Willemsen (the "fifth Beatle") and American gospel singer Michelle David. The mix of funk and soul, as heard on One Punch Pete, the group's third album since their debut in 2006, is even more energetic in a live setting.
