Beatsclassics basic setup consists of a DJ, female singer, percussionist and saxophonist. Every band member is a professional musician. They work as a team and turn every gig into a dynamic performance.

Beatsclassics is a musical initiative of saxophonist and producer Carlo Banning. After he finished his education at the academy of music in Amsterdam, he played in several cover bands, on festivals and big events, in the theatre and in clubs. In 2007 he decided to combine his broad stage experience and musical diversity in the innovative live concept Beatsclassics.
Zosja El Rhazi is Beatsclassics singer. She was one of the finalists in the first edition of Idols and got her degree with distinction at the academy of music in Amsterdam in 2008. Her first single, ‘I am sorry’, became the title song of the romantic comedy Phileine zegt sorry.
DJ/VJ and piano player Wolfgang Maiwald, also known as Dr. M, chose the jazz discipline at the academy of music in Hilversum. He is currently a regular member of several jazz and pop formations.
Percussion is the area of expertise of Sherwin Kirindongo. He is also a band member with Giovanca and Ruth Jacott and played in the live ensembles of big musicals like The Lion King and Dirty Dancing.
Beatsclassics is more than a regular cover band. Although Beatsclassics also plays covers, the band members make them their own by mixing them with grooving samples and the best dance tracks.
