The Auratones


So far the The Auratones have released five albums. We are working on our 6th album. And we'll release it in 2021. Trust us - it's worth the wait - it's gonna be our best!

New to The Auratones ? Is it jazz? Is it funk? Is it soul? 

  • The Auratones combine the best of all these genres

  • So called soul-jazz with latin- and world influences

  • Jazz with a beat: Funkin’ hard, original and danceable

So while you are waiting in great anticipation for the release of our 6th album, take the time to listen to some of our previous albums. The Auratones albums are on several streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple music. 

Live The Auratones have worked with great guest stars such as altosax virtuoso Candy Dulfer, trumpet wizzards Gerard Presencer and Eric Vloeimans as well as vocalists Berget Lewis and Boris.

On their fourth album "A Cool danceable Adventure" Gerald Presencer is a guest soloist. Vocal, flute and hammond organ virtuoso Thijs van Leer and his daughter, vocalist, Berenice van Leer feature on their fifth album "The Adventure Continues". Thijs is one of the original members of the famous Dutch rock band Focus. The Auratones added their own special sauce on three Focus hits such as Hocus Pocus, Sylvia and House of the King.  Cool eh?
