About us

Essentials is a Rotterdam based rock band that plays a-typical covers (mainly 90’s and 00’s) enriched with own songs.

It’s a guy thing. Essentials is a four man formation with the following charming band members.

Ben

Allround musician Ben, paves the road in our songs with his both melodic as percussive bass lines. If your hips are movin', it because of him.

Sebastiaan

Our benjamin (it's all 'bout the Benjamin$) is Sèbastiaan, who is our leadsinger and rythm guitar player. Guys wanna be him, girls wanna be with him.

andré

André, the last Mohican that joined the formation, on lead guitar. Warm lows and squeeling highs are on their way to you. Prefers wine over beer.

symon

Rampampam, on drums we have Symon, dropping those fine snares, booming with the bass drum and hit those highs with the cymbals. Hear the drummer, get wicked

gigs

No gigs planned at the moment. We are currently writiting and recording some of our own songs. Stay tuned!!
