The Cool Quest Short Info

Insipred by bands like The Roots, Kendric Lamar, Snarky Puppy and 90’s Hip Hop, The Cool Quest has played up to 500 energetic, grooving live shows. in 2014, a major step was taken by focusing on writing and producing their debutalbum.

In September 2013, the band already released their very first chapter, titled ‘In Spite Of ’. To the band, this EP feels like the end of the early days of The Cool Quest. During 2014, the band worked hard to finish their debut album. As a result, ‘Funkin’ Badass’ hit Dutch stores in October 2014.
Partly because of ‘Funkin’ Badass’, 2015 became a very hot year for the band, starting with an appearance on Europe’s largest showcase festival, Eurosonic, in January. Their hit single, ‘Shine’, awarded them ‘Serious Talent’ by Dutch national radio station 3FM.

This was noticed by the most famous Dutch talk show, ‘De Wereld Draait Door’, as well and
the band made an appearance on the show 5 times during couple of years. All this resulted in the possibility for The Cool Quest to discharge their boundless energy during more than 65 gigs on festivals throughout the entire Benelux and Germany. Now, the band is ready more than ever to release new work.
