Travellin’ Blue Kings NL/D opened the first night at the 12th Bluesnacht, Petershagen DE on 30.07.2021.
Travellin’ is not in the name by chance, these five gentlemen worked with their respective bands all over Europe. You could find them on festival stages in Norway, Sweden, Poland, Germany, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Italy.
And of course, in every corner of Belgium and the Netherlands.
This blues mobile still influences range from Texas to the West Coast, across New Orleans and Memphis heading for Chicago and then to the UK’s British Blues Boom. The five gentlemen find their inspiration in many different kinds of music and bring a fresh and yet familiar repertoire, supplemented with a few precisely chosen covers. That’s what you can expect from this band, brought with tons of energy and enthusiasm.
Travellin’ Blue Kings are Jb Biesmans (voc, sax, harp), Jimmy Hontelé (g), Patrick Cuyvers (org), Winne Penninckx (b) and Marc Gijbels (dr).
