Deejay Tin Tin played music of Art Blakey, Willis Jackson, and Bunky Green at the very first jazz dance party in Rotterdam in 1986. He subsequently performed at all the bigger clubs and discotheques in the Netherlands and even received an invitation to play at The Blue Note Club in London, and later at the Jazz Café as well. He introduced Holland to the originally British jazz dance genre. Tin Tin, who got his nickname because of his 4-inch greaser, went on to run his own Jazz Latin Cigar Bar in Rotterdam. After eleven years he is returning to the festival.
