De Dijk is a dutch band from Amsterdam & Zaandam. Their style can be described as a mix of soul, blues and rock. The group is named after the Zeedijk street in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Formed in 1981 by brothers Hans en Huub van der Lubbe and friend Daniel Derks, De Dijk caught the wave of Dutch rock music, which they've ridden for a quarter century since. Having worked with a number of Amsterdam based groups for close to a decade with very little success, the brothers shifted their attention to their new project featuring Dutch lyrics in 1981.
