“They are unbelievable… They are insane… and they are absolutely amazing live on stage. With their zoot-suits, flamboyance, large beers, cheap whiskey, dancing and swinging… They will Jive You Crazy!” Jazz Connection is a true follower of the Jump Jive/Blues and early Rhythm ’n Blues style that hit America’s black postwar population. With songs from Louis Prima, Wynonie Harris, King Curtis and Teddy Brannon, they bring a revival of the best and brightest star performers from these exciting years.
Founded 26 years ago in ‘jazzy’ hometown Breda, Jazz Connection is moving like a train, swinging and rolling with their Jive & Swing show. They have performed at major festivals and clubs in Holland, toured in Belgium, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Scandinavia, France, Bulgaria and Poland as well as in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The band performed from the start of the band at the Breda Jazz Festival in The Netherlands.
