says Sonny Hoogwerf, the group’s founder and lead singer. In the late 1990’s, Sonny began building a diverse band whose talents could switch from one style to another. His desire was to produce a rich mix of rock, soul, jazz, Latin, folk, and dance music; a sound that audiences would find both familiar and unique. The seven-piece group Sonny formed was a collection of Holland’s finest musicians, all trained at the Academy of Music.
