Dutch funkband Seven Eleven was founded in 1987. In 1990 the band started performing with hiphop outfit Dope Posse merging funk and hiphop live on stage. In 1993 Seven Eleven refined their funk formula with a horn section.
After winning the Camelpop award in 1993 the band recorded their debut album The Come Out with New York guitarist and producer Menace (Madonna, Bill Laswell, P-Funk). The record was released in 1996 and received outstanding acclaims. Unfunky B.I.T.C.H. (1999) was the band’s first single.
Throughout the years the band’s energetic live reputation grew0 rapidly and soon they appeared on international stages and festivals. In the new millennium Seven Eleven played and recorded with funk artists such as Fred Wesley (James Brown, Parliament), Mudbone Cooper (Parliament, Bootsy’s Rubber Band), Dawn Silva and Jeanette Washington (Brides of Funkenstein), Louis Johnson (Brothers Johnson) and many others.
In 2012 the band is celebrating their 25th anniversary.
