Yves Peeters Gumbo

François Vaiana (vocals), Bruce James (piano & vocals), Nicolas Kummert (tenor sax), Dree Peremans (trombone), Axel Gilain (bass), Yves Peeters (drums)

Ghent drummer Yves Peeters has so many irons in the fire that his days seem to have more than the average 24 hours in them. Instead of a sweaty road trip through the Deep South, Peeters and his band, Yves Peeters Gumbo, drive you down into New Orleans, that mythical birthplace of jazz, in his latest album, The Big Easy Revisited. Once you get there, he’ll take you on a tour of the pre- and post-Katrina eras. Powerful vocals, weaving gospel and soul together, dyed with bluesy piano licks, funky horn riffs, and beseeching voodoo rhythms. Save yourself an expensive flight down to New Orleans and head over to Yves Peeters Gumbo instead because we’ve got triple one-way tickets to the Garden Stage with unlimited access to the dance floor. Just try to tell us again you can’t dance to jazz…
