T-99 Alternative Roots Rock
Alternative rootsrocktrio T-99 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) have belonged to the top of the European roots scene for twenty years now. With their eclectic mix of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, country, surf, and soul they have toured all over Europe since 1999. T-99 consists of three wild bohemian characters playing on vintage instruments with enormous energy, great musicianship and a high dose of passion, thus creating a unique blend of musical styles that can only be defined as ‘that T-99 sound’ (just imagine Dr. John jamming with Los Lobos in a packed sweaty garage just outside of Austin, Texas). “The most exciting and renewing roots band in the Netherlands and far beyond." (OOR Magazine)

"Bedlam!" in comics museum

“Pieter M. Dorrenboom is freelance illustrator. Hij tekent onder andere posters en flyers voor muziekfestivals en elpeehoezen en is illustrator voor kranten geweest, waaronder Het Algemeen Dagblad. Onlangs heeft Dorrenboom de cover van het album Bedlam! van de band T-99 geïllustreerd. In combinatie met de release van dit album begin november zal Dorrenbooms werk geëxposeerd worden in Het Nederlands Stripmuseum, waarbij de focus zal liggen op de totstandkoming van het album Bedlam!. Natuurlijk zal ook ander werk van de illustrator te bewonderen zijn.

T-99 geeft op donderdag 15 december een optreden in Vera te Groningen. ‘s Middags treedt de band op in Het Nederlands Stripmuseum om de expositie te lanceren. Dit optreden start om 16:00 uur.

De expositie is te zien van zaterdag 3 december 2016 tot en met zondag 26 februari 2017.”

Welcome back

Welcome to T-99’s new website! The old one was great but could only be visited if you had a computer from 1959 or earlier. Thanks to Moker Ontwerp & Atelier Tackenco we are ready for the future.






Throughout the years T-99 have shown themselves a constant factor on (pop) festivals and stages across Holland, Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Great Britain and the US. The band has played (among many, many other stages) at Noorderslag, North Sea Jazz Festival, Latitude (UK), Popkomm (DE), Belgium Rhythm & Blues Festival (BE), Zwarte Cross and Eurosonic. The band shared en passant stages with legends such as Chuck Berry, Dr. John and Little Feat. Music by T-99 was used in several TV-shows and programs and the trio has done several other successful performances on national radio and tv. In 2008 the band was invited by BBC radio DJ Mark Lamarr to record exclusively at the London BBC studio’s for his popular radio show ‘God’s Jukebox’. In 2010 the band shone in theater production The Freak. And two years later their music was also used to provide power and punch to the movie Black Out and more recently in Netflix-series SealTeam.


After their stunning debut (Coo-Coo, 2001), they released their ‘voodoo-album’ Strange Things Happen (2004), that was followed by a ‘rootsy psychedelic’ album, ‘Cherrystone Park‘ in 2005. With Vagabonds (2007) T-99 created their ‘dirty down and out’ masterpiece. After a break to partake in several side-projects (Cuban Heels, Maison Du Malheur) in 2015 they issued their ‘best of’ entitled ‘The Various Sounds Of T-99’. But with these five albums and one EP (Strange Cherries, 2006) under their belt, T-99 were far from satisfied. In 2016 they released ’Bedlam!’ -one of their most outrageous albums so far. In 2018 the band started releasing 7” vinyl singles under the title “The T-99 Single Series”.
