Cookies And Cream started out as a band in (exactly!) 1999 – six youngsters who met at the Antwerp music academy and decided to broaden the principle of “just another cover band”.
The key element of Cookies and Cream’s success formula is an energetic live set combining the best of today’s party music, ranging from electronic dance anthems to the newest tracks on the chart, moulded together in a captivating mix of over 150 song snippets.
“Cookies and Cream are a 100% live band, touring throughout the year,” underlines frontman, and one of the two brothers in the band, Domien Van Aerde, “Our strength lies in the combination of skilled musicians, multi-vocal harmonics plus the fact that we’ve imported the idea of mixing recognisable song-snippets together, like Dj’s in clubs do. We actually never play a song from A to Z on stage.”
Throughout the years, Cookies And Cream have become the reliable factor when it comes to organising all kinds of events, from festivals and corporate events to night life shows in clubs and private parties. The band compiles a full brand new set-list for every new tour-season – clients and potential organisers are invited to the annual Cookies and Cream showcase where the new programme hits the stage.
“We have made our own way in the party-band-pack,” continues Domien. “With some of the band members being DJ’s themselves, Cookies And Cream are very close to what’s happening on the dance-floors or airwaves. Energy and public interaction are key in the choice of music we bring.”
