Old Style New Orleans Music
9 December 2022 @ 20 h 30 min18€ – 20€
The Mardi Gras Jazzband
The Mardi Gras Jazzband is since 1983 an established name in jazzclubs and festivals in Belgium and perhaps even more in the Netherlands.
“Old Style” has been the motto all the time, in which long forgotten songs and surprising themes prevail.
This shows that “New Orleans jazz” is so much more than the playing style of black musicians who visited our regions in the sixties and seventies.
Their favourite repertoire dates from the “Roaring Twenties”.
The Mardi Gras Jazzband has been around for over 39 years and still hosts three founding members: of course “Papa” Paul Callebaut (leader, vocals and trombone), Wim “Dix” Decommer (piano) and Paul “Speedy” De Bock (bass).
We also have Michel Simons (trumpet), Jan “Magic” Coppieters (clarinet), Marnix De Boom (drums) and the Swedish banjo player Mattias “Fidgety” Hallin.
