Album Notes
Dark bar jazz, down to the bone blues and a singer whose voice smokes like a burning oil field – that’s what Hookerman is. The Dutch-German band was founded in 1995 and found the inspiration in the work of Tom Waits ... the American singer songwriter - and has since then been plucking strings in the Clubs of the Kingdom of Netherlands and the Republic of Germany.

The Quintet has published three CDs : 1998 „Between August and July“, 2002 „Absolutely maybe“ and 2008 „Monkey Zoo“.

Last year the band was deeply involved in the International Singer Songwriters contest where the good old master Tom Waits was one of the jury members ... they stumbled in the semifinal with the song Diggin a Hole!

Review / Wild Rover Aachen, Germany:
Hookermans music is highly hypnotic, free-spirited but emotional. With talent, intelligence and tenderness, these musicians create exciting songs flowing from their capability to come together or to let the other go in a virtuoso solo. Never losing the character of the song or its melody or rhythm. Hookerman is another invitation to the blues.
