He has performed as a bandleader, sideman and bandmember with many groups and artists all over Europe, as well as in the United States, South Africa, Mexico, the Caribbean and China. One of the recent highlights in Toon’s musical career was the invitation from Walter Becker personally to open the shows of Steely Dan on their European ‘Left Bank Holiday’ tour in 2009. The Toon Roos Quartet played nine large halls among which the Hammersmith Apollo in London and the Olympia in Paris. Becker commented that ‘Toon’s playing is so well balanced, that every note has a musical meaning… the opening shows were excellent all the way.’ The Music Village, Steenstraat 50 1000 false MM/DD/YYYY
