We are Rob Hoogkamer and Alex Buurman. This is what happened:
The beginning of the eighties.
As soon as we met it became obvious we were musical blood brothers. Since then we’ve been playing together and did quite a lot of recording as well, mostly of our own music. Just for fun.
It was never intended for anyone else then ourselves to be listened to. This was until drumming guru Juan van Emmerloot recently visited the studio and accidently heard what we were doing.
He decided it was time for us to get into the open and infused our music with some extra life by throwing his brilliant drumming onto some of the takes we’ve been keeping for ourselves the last couple of decades.
So here we are! Al-Row is the name of our bloodbrothership. It doesn’t mean anything, but it sounds like a character from a comic strip, which is fine…. We are very excited to bring this out in the open now and to present our music to you!
Who we are
What we listen for breakfast (and lunch and dinner): Steely Dan, EWF, Miles Davis, Toto, Michael McDonald and a lot more.
