The Zanders

About us

As a starting band that has just released its first studio album, we’re excited for what’s to come. We’ve had a number of successful shows. The highlights and upcoming events can be found both here and on our instagram, which we update regularly. Our music and performances are backed up by years of practice and musical experimentation that we can finally present to the world without the restriction of the covid pandemic.

Throughout the creation of our first album, we’ve progressed in our abilities and broadened our musical influences. With most of our tracks having started off as beatleseque songs, we’ve drawn inspiration from our evolving musical tastes throughout the years to refine them.

Winners of Noorderwind Showcase!

After getting through the preselection, we played in a semi-final and the final. The objective of the final was two-fold: first to get the most audience votes for the audience prize and secondly to get as many bookings from the bookers present to become the overall winner. We ended up winning both!

Zomerpop 2022!

This year we got the amazing opportunity to play at Zomerpop. The sound and vibe were great and we’re really happy with the show we were able to create.  Check it out!

The Zanders at Omrop Fryslân

This summer we got the opportunity to play at the radio/TV program Noardewyn Live, which is broadcast by Omrop Fryslân. It was an amazing experience to be able to play in a sophisticated TV studio environment.

Album release at D’Drive

After years of work we finally released our debut album: Losing Control. We released this album on the 10th of May 2022. For the release of the album we gave a concert at D’Drive Leeuwarden which was amazing!

The album is now available on all the major streaming platforms. Check it out!
