Pianist, Organist, Music Director, Producer.
Sven Figee is the Lucky Luke of the Hammond: he plays faster than his shadow and it is always striking. This man knows no limits on his instrument. From Bach to blues and from Vivaldi to Metallica. His physical way of making music is a feast for the eyes and ears: steaming, ringing, squeaking, crackling and intoxicating, but also poetic and intensely intimate. In 2006 he founded the band 'Sven Hammond' that since has released 9 albums with nr 10, Sphere - A tribute to Thelonious Monk' coming up in spring '21. Sven has also been appointed as the musical director and side kick of Matthijs van Nieuwkerk for his new Saturday night show on prime time Dutch TV called 'Matthijs Gaat Door'. His band will appear as an extended version and be called the 'Sven Hammond Big Band' - a 16-piece orchestra under direction of Sven.
