THE BELGIAN DIXIE KINGS
At the end of the seventies a few dixieland-formations were formed in Limburg (Belgium-Europe) that revived the style of the twenties. With names as the Deep Creek Jazzuits, The Piccolo Dixieland Band and the Down Town Jazz Gang, Limburg-Belgium suddenly gained an important rang in the dixieland-scene. After muddling through of several Dixieland-bands, 4 musicians put their heads together to do something unique. Playing Dixieland-music with 'four' musicians: a revolution! The Dixieland-scene was turned upside down. Frank, Danny, Patrick and Carlo are the basic elements of a unique concept: THE BELGIAN DIXIE KINGS. The repertoire of the Belgian Dixie Kings does not just contain ordinary jazzmusic or boring New-Orleans-'stomps' ... but a mixture of contemporary dixieland & swingmusic with even sometimes a tinge of bebop and latin. Their recent CD 'Off The Record' has become the crown of their work. The Belgian Dixie Kings already were a guest at several jazz-festivals and jazz-club-concerts in Europe.
