Seamanschoir De Raddraaiers

A group of enthusiastic men who have founded love for singing a seaman’s choir. Due to the backlog in performances in 2008, we have looked for other sources and focused on changing the market. Due to many performances on cruise ships, we had to leave our our only Dutch repertoire. The ratio between Dutch and Other languages is 50%. In addition to the usual walzes, music styles such as ragtime, blues, tango, rumba, bolero, reggae, ballads and polka’s are used, so as to achieve an equally fresh and surprising result. The musical accompaniment consists of 2 accordionists, bassguitar, tuba and drummer. An average of 50 performances per year, of which 75% are on river cruise ships, but also regularly in homes and institutions, shanty and seasong festivals and commercial and cultural events.

Do you want to sing? Feel free to taste the atmosphere.

Every Wednesday evening we rehearsein Buurthuis De Dwarsligger in IJmuiden. Keep an eye on our agenda, if we have an performence on Wednesday, we will not rehearse.
