Here you can find the strength of the Spectacles Jazzband unplugged and on stage.



Theo Sterk Theo Sterk - trompet, zang

He started his career when he was 6 years old, playing the trumpet in harmony K.N.A. from Arkel, where several family members were already playing. Making Music has been passed on in his genes. He was classically trained at music school and later by teacher at the academy of music in Hilversum. His musical orientation has a broad variety and he has been active since he was very young. He really loves old style Jazz, and when the Spectacles were founded he was one of the youngest musicians (18) in that genre. Furthermore, he is still active in symphonic Music, teaches how to play the trumpet, and he is the leader of court chapel “Nooit Gedagt”. (Dutch for: I never thought it would…) He also regularly performs alone.
Ed Sterk Ed Sterk - klarinet

He comes from a family where music was considered to be very important and music was highly appreciated, so he got interested in music as well. When he was eight years old he was introduced to the clarinet by harmony K.N.A from Arkel, the harmony he still plays in. He had a classical education at music school. When he was older he appreciated old-style jazz more and more, especially because of the freedom it offers. He got a lot of experience from playing in all kinds of ensambles and he is one of the founders of The Spectacles Jazzband, working together in close harmony with Cees van Dis. Ed is also the musical leader of the Spectacles. Furthermore he is still active in symphonic Music and he also plays in court chapel “Nooit Gedagt”. Sometimes he also conducts choir rehearsals.
