Who are we?

Weaned on classic records by King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and others, The Fried Seven bring a youthful, virtuosic twist to their music-making that makes it all the more engaging and authentic.

Based in Amsterdam, they have fast become favorites on the European jazz scene, playing to packed crowds across the continent. They released their album Late to the Party on Rivermont records in January 2024.

If you like your jazz hot -- really hot -- The Fried Seven serve up some of the scorchin'-est 1920s-style jazz to be found anywhere!

Laura Dooge

"Laura patiently admired the Seven from a distance until she worked up the courage to ask if she could join them for a few songs. Fortune favors the brave and, in this case, the audience as well, who gets to enjoy her sweet, nuanced vocals. "

                                     - Julio Schwarz Andrade

Laura also sings the Great American Songbook of the 1940s and ’50s and, with her own band, Vondelier, explores the rich repertoire of lyrics written in her native Dutch.
