Nacho Patrol was founded in 2008 after Danny Wolfers aka Legowelt bought an old 70s wahwah pedal and started to
write some afro funk tracks with it. It was soon signed to Kindred Spirits records who asked if Nacho Patrol could play
in the line up with Ethiopian Jazz legend Mulatu Astatke in his Amsterdam show at Paradiso.
Danny brought together a rag-tag team of musicians who would be able to present the Nacho Patrol sound in a
live band show:
Jimi Helenga also known as Elektrovolt, a The Hague musician who is master of many instruments (from synthesizer to
guitar to mediaval bagpipes!).
Marc Alberto a jazz saxophone master who studies jazz at the prestigious jazz school of Maastricht/Aachen
and last but not least Martijn Hazelzet on guitar who played Nacho Patrols ever lasting funky riffs and crazy fuzz solos.
Sadly Martijn Hazelzet moved to the Island of Crete to start an olive oil farm and become a professional golfer, leaving
the guitar parts to Jimi Helenga from now on. ClearartFanartBanner User Comments
