The Mauskovic Dance Band was started by Nicola “Mauskovic” Niggebrugge a few years ago. Now, all of the members in the group seem to be called Mauskovic for their surname. Nicola spent some time playing drums with Altin Gün and just like Jasper Verhulst and Ben Rider, he was previously in Jacco Gardner’s band too. His current outfit released their first longplayer very recently. Simply called The Mauskovic Dance Band, the music on it verges on dance music as the title would suggest – not too unlike his recent project with Jacco Gardner, called Bruxas. These 8 tracks are more upbeat however, and puts some afrobeat into the mix. Opening track “Drinks By Sea” has been my soundtrack to this week’s evenings by the beach.
