John the Houseband is a project born in Amsterdam in 2008.  It is a musical assembly of performers and choreographers from Sweden, Iceland, Belgium, Spain and Germany. They came together as a collaborative changing body, a band, which is not a band in normal terms, but an art project; an investigation of life and liveness. John is inspired by the particular ability of live music to affect an audience in a very primal way.

Furthermore John the Housebands shows blur the boundaries between concert and performance, professionalism and amateurism, skill and dedication. John bends the spacial organization of a band.

In 2015 they brought out their first Album: Anthology. Which, as a debut album, presents a generous “best of”.

John the Houseband are : Alma Söderberg (SE), Dennis Deter (D), Melkorka Sigridur Magnusdottir (IS), Anja Müller (D), Hendrik Willekens (BE) and Roger Sala Reyner (ES).
