Hans Heinhuis – guest pianist

Hans Heinhuis is a versatile and acclaimed jazz pianist who covers a range of jazz styles with verve from Classic Jazz to Swing, American Songbook repertoire and mainstream.  He is a very popular pianist for accompanying top vocalists and has performed with many of them including Colette Wickenhagen , Hanneke Jansen and Jaqui Martin. He was also member of the well-known Conny van Bergen combo.

He featured with the legendary Ad van der Hoed quartet and currently plays in the standard line-up for three big bands including the well known Ramblers and the Utrecht Jazz Orchestra.

He teams up regularly as guest with celebrated bands including the Reunion Jazz Band (a formation featuring former Dutch Swing College Band members). Hans is also leading various jazz trios.

He was the founder and leader of the West Coast Jazz Band, an established trad band from The Hague.   During that time he met up with Cees van den Heuvel and at the end of the sixties he joined the Rhine Town Dixie Preachers (lead by Cees at the time). It resulted in a fruitful, musical and joyful cooperation with many years of successful performances.

After all those years the contact has recently been re-established and Hans joined the band for a well received concert at the Jazz Club Veenendaal in January 2012.
