It all starts in 1993 in the Amsterdam Soul Kitchen, where Benjamin Herman and DJ Graham B are on stage together. While Graham B is spinning records, Benjamin is playing. A unique combination. Ultimately, this leads to the eight-piece New Cool Collective, with which the band has played countless times in the hippest clubs and festivals around the world, in the permanent 8-piece line-up or as a 19-piece big band. In recent years, NCC has also collaborated with Tony Allen, Mapacha Africa, Andrew Roachford, Jules Deelder, Typhoon, Guus Meeuwis, Matt Bianco, Thierno Koité and Georgie Fame. On September 28th, 2022, New Cool Collective will be in PAARD.
