------------------------------------------ “BACK IN THE DAYS...” There is no precise date when the Rosenberg Trio actually started to be a trio. Being kids of a very musical family they grew up with the music of Django Reinhardt. In 1974 Hans Meelen met for the first time members of the Sinti-community. Stochelo was 6 years old at that time.Hans started to play in the churches with Sani Rosenberg (the father of Nous'che and Nonnie), Wasso Grünholz (grandfather of Stochelo) and Storo Berger on violin.

When Stochelo was about 10 years old he started to play the guitar together with cousin and buddy Nous'che. Hans Meelen formed the band “Manouche” with Stochelo, Nous'che and Rino van Hooydonk on guitar, Hans on clarinet and Gijs van Helden or Leon de Wijs on bass. They played in Holland and Belgium. In 1980 Hans arranged that they could play for a local radio-station and he used the recordings of that program to introduce the band to a childrens TV-contest. It was only for children so Nous'che, Stochelo and Rino were the only members of the band that were allowed to play there. People loved what they were doing and they won the first price.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
