Welcome to the official Mr. Boogie Woogie site
“Winner Dutch Blues Challenge 2017”
Hard drivin’, old school, New Orleans style Rhythm & Blues, complemented by some killer Boogie Woogie, by the fastest, flashiest, piano-thumping boogie man from the Netherlands. Yes, that’s right. This Dutch based, drive by piano player hits hard and will take no prisoners! As soon as he starts pounding the ivories, you’ll be on your way to the Land of Good Times.
Internationally known pianist, singer and recording artist Eric-Jan Overbeek (1967) also known as Mr. Boogie Woogie most recently won the Dutch Blues Challenge 2017. He has also been awarded the prestigious honor of Best Dutch Blues Pianist 2010 by the Dutch Blues Foundation and voted Best European Blues Pianist in 2005 by the Trophees France Blues. Overbeek began playing piano at the young age of 8 and got his first regular piano playing job at age 12.
"It only takes about 30 seconds of listening to “the boogie woogie man” to know this guy belongs in America's most energetic roadhouses seven nights a week.... Heart patients are advised to check their pacemakers at the door." ~ Arizona Daily Star
“Overbeek's piano techniques can be described as nothing short of overwhelming." ~ Glendale Star
