NoKeys is formed by five enthusiastic musicians. Different backgrounds and ages but one shared passion; a good piece of music. NoKeys likes to get heavy but can also play a sensitive tone from time to time.

The name NoKeys came to life because, with every song included in the repertoire, the realization came that keys were needed. With the lack of a keyboardist, gaps were filled with the instruments that were available. Quickly, the realization came this went fine and keys could easily be replaced with bass or guitar. This style also suits a lot better, no-nonsense and rocking out! The fact that there is regular unclarity regarding the whereabouts of the keys to the rehearsal space could also be playing a factor…

The band first got together in 2016, coming from one of Nico Spruijt’s workshops. They first 1.5 years rehearsals took place in the Anker Studio. Since September 2017, POPEI is the dedicated home base for weekly practice on Monday night. Although there have been some changes, the current lineup is perfect. The band is complete and going for it!
