Reverent Juke

  • Created and born in december 2015 for ‘Un Coup De Follies’, “Reverent Juke” the ‘danceband’ is grown out of the collaboration between the dancer, Sep Vermeersh, and the arranger Mathieu Najean. They are rooted out of different projects, and currently play for ‘Un Coup de Follies’. The band is devoted to play for the dances that boosted the origins of swing. Or let’s say, they juke the hell out of Jazz . They play ad lib, or rearranged tunes bye Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fletcher Henderson, Chick Webb, Earl Hines and even Buddy Johnson. “Reverent Juke” plays the classic and some gems from the golden age of swing.

       With an explosive rhythm section built on the swinging drums of Tom Lambrecht, the bouncing bass and singing of Andrew Bolton and the wild stride of Renaud Crols, “Reverent Juke” sets the swing on fire with its three blowers, Martin Bolton on clarinet, Olivier Faber on trumpet and Mathieu Najean on reeds, blowing there horns on the fiery flames till they drop.
