The Boxx Orchestra was founded in 2016 by keyboard player and songwriter Jan Boekestein. In the seventies Jan started playing with symphonic rock band Argyll and later in power rockband The Boxx.
The line up was completed by singer Ria Mulder, started as a bassplayer and was very scared to sing in public. She got over it and became leadsinger in various coverbands. Now singing is her life saver! Guitarist Jos van der Zanden, raised in a very musical family, playing acoustic and electric guitar in several cover bands and combo’s. Walter Hüsstege, multi-instrumentalist and composer with progrock band Cause 17 on bass.Kees Schollen played drums in rock bands such as Bonfire, Challenger, The French Connection, D-Day and La Folie, all in the ‘Hammondrock’ circuit.
Not claiming a specific style, the music of The Boxx Orchestra can best be described as power rock with a lot of symphonic influences. Sometimes complex almost ‘classic’ and then again straightforward “between the eyes”rock.
The bands’ playlist contains songs from the Argyll and Boxx days, however in an upgraded 2021 version, added with new material like the lockdown single ‘The Eye of the Storm’.
Coming up in 2021 the first album of the band: ‘Out of the Boxx’.
