Jives You Crazy! They are crazy… They are insane… and they are absolutely amazing live on stage. With authentic zoot- suits, flamboyance, Cadillac’s, dancers and cheap whisky. Jazz Connection is a true follower of the Jumpin’ Jive style that hit America’s black postwar population. With songs from f.e. Louis Prima like ‘’Just a gigolo’’, they bring a revival of the best and brightest star performers from these exciting years.
Founded 32 years ago (!) in ‘jazzy’ hometown Breda, Jazz Connection is running like a train, swinging and rolling through Europe with their Jazz & Jive show. They have performed at major festivals and clubs in Holland, toured in Belgium, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Bulgarian, France and Poland as well as in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The band performed at many editions of the Breda Jazz Festival in Holland. In 2008 Jazz Connection was invited to perform at the world famous Ascona Jazz Festival Switzerland together with Andy Cooper (UK) and Frits Landesbergen (Holland).
Together with lots of humor Jazz Connection produces their remarkable sound: transparent, sophisticated, catchy and groovy. Whether it’s a festive jive, tantalizing boogie or heartbreaking blues, you’ll recognize without doubt the sound of this unique sextet.
