An honours graduate from Codarts in Rotterdam, the young talent Jimmy ‘Jo’ Hueting and his experimental pop band Jo Goes Hunting have played at Best Kept Secret and as a support act for De Staat. For Festival Jazz International Rotterdam, Jo Goes Hunting will transform into a big jazz ensemble made up of twelve multi-instrumentalists.

Jo Goes Hunting XL will perform in both Nijmegen and Rotterdam with a line-up that includes woodwind and brass players, synthesizers, guitars and background vocalists, and with Jimmy Hueting on drums and lead vocals. The set will feature unique interpretations of existing indie songs by Jo Goes Hunting, specially arranged for the occasion. These two performances will be recorded and later released as an exclusive live album.
