The guy’s from ACES are actually from all over the world.
Aldo, the Indonesian guy, bassguitar, a mad man. Father of 2 , the great smile !
Cees, the Dutch guy, drums, perfectionist, discipline, manager of the band, magical with technology, father of 2. The great tough man.
Eric, the Suriname guy, lead singer/songwriter, father of 4, a biker and the great spirit man.
Steve, the UK guy, founder of “Found your sound” , father of 2, the great family man.
The start was Eric and Steve found out they had a musical vibe together. They recorded some songs. “ In the beginning we had such a revival thing in our mind “ Eric remembers.
But when Cees came along and started drumming, immediately we both thought…..” Cool man, that’s what we need”!
With Aldo, who is actually a funk bass player, it appeared that this combination worked very well on a creative way. It gave the band that melodic special groove what up until know determines how the band sounds on their tracks.
In 2016 ACES was proclaimed by winning Gigstarter “ band of the year “!
Then a number of festivals and band clashes were won, which led to for example following comment of the jury;
“The sound that ACES can make is frankly insane, incredible goosebumps kind of music. Very rich tonally, they know exactly who plays what role and no sounds step on each other, fantastic !!
Stage presence; I’ve seen all to many bands that play great but look like doing their taxes on stage. These guy’s are different, when they play they use every inch of the stage”.

In 2019 ACES produced their first CD, performed and recorded by ACES
