DASH! is an Amsterdam based modern free-funk group spearheaded by award-winning saxophonist, clarinetist and composer Maarten Ornstein. The music of DASH! draws from jazz, blues, funk and contemporary music as well as using a number of ethnic influences. Bassist Alex Oele and drummer Eric Hoeke provide solid yet unpredictable, ever evolving foundations for Ornstein's eclectic style which ranges from Arab quarter-tone maqams to bop and back.
