Upcoming concerts

At the K.Fée (featured in Club Guide not so long ago):

Sayma, described as a mix of jazz, latin, trip hop, ethnic music and drum'n'bass spiced with improvisation, electronics, sampling and video projections. The band is made up of singer Sanja Maas and some excellent Belgian jazz players, such as Erwin Vann (tp), Laurent Blondiau (tp) and Otti Van der Werf (elb). Friday october 10.

Although well past his 80th birthday Toots Thielemans (or should I say, Baron Toots Thielemans?) is still going strong. He's performing with Philippe Aerts (b), Dré Pallemaerts (d) and Jozef Dumoulin, who could easily be Toots's grandson. Following Toots is Greetings From Mercury, a jazz/hip hop group featuring complex rhythms and excellent rapping & throaty singing. Both concerts on friday october 17.

The Raid Note has yet to be featured in the Club Guide, but surely will be one day soon. They have concerts on fridays and jams on wednesdays. Send an email to to be informed of future gigs.

The Zero Parallel brings together a Finnish singer (Anu Junnonen), an Italian guitarist (Giacomo Lariccia) and a Belgian rhythm section (Olivier Stalon on electric bass and Jonathan Callens on drums). Friday october 17.
