Mooi Wark is a band founded in Drenthe in 1992 by Bert Koops (vocals and guitar) and Henk Oosting (bass guitar and vocals).

As big fans, Bert Koops and Henk Oosting started to compose their own songs in the Drents, in imitation of Normaal .

During the Radio Drenthe program Muzementen by Jans Polling the birth of Mooi Wark took place and soon the band got the attention of the public and the media. In the meantime, the duo had already been supplemented with drummer Arjan Elting and they were still looking for a sologitarist. This was found in the person of Bert Hoezen.

In this composition the rehearsals started in the warehouse of the ACM building in Odoorn . Between the pallets with bags of animal feed the Mooi Wark sound was born there and two weeks later the first real performance followed as a complete band in Ter Apel. The first album "Zwoegen in 't heuj" was recorded in the summer of the same year.

The reactions to the first album were above expectations. For the first time in Drenthe, the traditional, somewhat old-fashioned Dutch-speaking music was broken. Soon performances followed in pre-programs of Golden Earring , Rowwen Hze , De Dijk and - their great examples - Normal .

The result of all the attention was that Mooi Wark was offered a record deal by Johnny Hoes, the record company Telstar . A number of singles were released under this label.
