The Amazing Stroopwafels is a Dutch band originating from Rotterdam. They started as a duo in 1979, performing as street musicians. The group now consists of Wim Kerkhof (vocals, double bass and piano), Arie van der Graaf (electric guitar) and Rien de Bruin (acoustic guitar and accordion). They're one of the busiest-performing groups in the Netherlands with more than 6000 concerts in thirty years. The predominantly Dutch-language group also toured widely in Denmark.

Although the band never had a hit-record, their 1981 song Oude Maasweg (based on Leon Russell's Manhattan Island Serenade, from the album Carney) is a classic in Dutch pop music history. The song starts in English, the second verse continues in Dutch as an impressionist story of heartbreak in the dreary industrial area of Rotterdam. In 2007 the song charted number 16 in the Top 2000, an all-times chart compiled by the listeners of Dutch Radio 2.

The Amazing Stroopwafels have released 16 studio albums and 5 compilation albums, one live LP and three DVDs.
