The SH Group is a young band that formed at the Regional Conservatory of Chalon-sur-Saône in 2017. The group’s roots can be traced back to the Trio Jazz By Three, which included Sébastien Hugue on double bass and composition, Victor Prost on drums, and Tom Juvigny on guitar. After catching the attention of saxophonist Pierre Girard and trumpeter Samuel André, the group expanded to become a quintet and adopted the name SH Group.
While the band has experienced some changes to its lineup over the years, it remains focused on delivering beautiful, simple music that draws inspiration from various genres, such as rock, jazz, and pop. Rather than prioritizing language or style, the band emphasizes the vibration of the sounds and the attitude displayed while playing. The goal is to create a sense of openness, sharing, and community, free from intellectualism or rigid traditions. The SH Group is made up of a group of friends who are passionate about playing music together. In the spring of 2019, the SH Group had an opportunity to showcase their talents when they performed as an accompaniment to the Quartet of Pierre Durand (guitarist) during a regional tour in Burgundy Franche-Comté, organized by the Regional Center of Jazz (Centre Regional du Jazz en Bourgogne – FC). Since then, the group has played regularly in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and beyond. Their first record, the “SH Group EP,” was released on March 12, 2020. After some lineup changes, the SH Group relocated to Belgium and now includes Pierre-Antoine Savoyat on trumpet, Jonas Le Roy on saxophone, Matteo Di Leonardo on guitar, Niklas Von Werne on drums, and Sébastien Hugue on double bass and composition. Despite these changes, the band’s focus on delivering beautiful and simple music that fosters a sense of community and openness remains unchanged.
