MUSIC at Comedy Café Amsterdam


A new project presenting live and streamed concerts simultaneously.


Providing weekly residences for young – emerging young artists –  soon to be discovered talent of tomorrow.

Concerts emerging from these residency explorations are Sunday through Tuesday.


Sundays are special - the morning begins with [Amsterdam Live] - a 10 am solo piano concert streamed online. The day continues with the Improvisation circle at noon, a weekly meeting . for the local musicians and improvisers. 

Monday and Tuesday concerts, 7.30 pm showcase both young and also established artists.

Once in a while a more familiar name drops into MUSIC at Comedy Café Amsterdam. Keep an eye on the website for info.
