Sunday “Beer Dance” with The Lucky Losers
THE BAND – Lucky Losers Jazz Band
This sextet, founded in May 2021 by drummer/arranger Maarten Kruijswijk, plays ‘vintage’ jazz from the 1920s to 1950s.
The band started out as a quintet with more calm music in a recording project, but soon became a sextet with a repertoire that focuses heavily on dancers. This repertoire consists of pieces by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Jelly Roll Morton, among others, and is played in an authentic style.
Fresh tight arrangements with room for improvisation, played by experienced and skilled players,creates that special connection between the dancer/listener and the musicians.
