To Joop, music has always been important. He grew up with jazz, mostly because of his dad. In Club Caribbean and Club Ebony he discovered salsa, merengue and bachata. As he loved salsa, he decided to take lessons and took part in several congresses. He even received (private)lessons abroad, from some of the top salsa teachers in the world.
Now, after 6 years, Joop has build a large fanbase as a DJ (DJ-JMB). He plays several different styles, such as Salsa, Merengue, Latin House, R&B and loads more.
He has experience as a resident at Latin Thursday and the DJ-JMB Party, both at Holland Casino Amsterdam. He also plays large events, such as Latin Village, SalsaLounge, Hotel Arena, Summer Breeze, Westergasterras, Club Latin Mix, Mirror Center Amsterdam, SalsaFactory, Cuba Libre, and Wednesday Night Groove. He even collaborated with the well known New Swing Sextet during one of these events. Read more
