The Blue Sands duo, consisting of bass guitarist Reindert Kragt and singer Esther van Hees, proves that voice and bass can be an exciting and intimate combination. The duo's distinctive sound has been described in reviews as cinematic, dreamy, and quirky. Their inspiration? Disney songs, 90's grunge, jazz standards, classical composers, and much more. The duo had a desire to not only perform together but also play in a larger ensemble. And so, Blue Sands the Band was born!

An important requirement for forming this band was that the essence of bass and vocals would still be at the core, and that a standard pop/jazz band would not be formed. The musicians joining Blue Sands in this new lineup are all fantastic, creative top musicians with their own unique sound: Miquel Boelens on saxophone, Marta Arpini on vocals/guitar, and Mats Voshol on drums. We can't wait!
