LiquID is very happy to welcome those very old friends of ours to close up our birthday
celebration week. Hailing from the south of Belgium, Uninspired is a multi-faceted trio,
incredibly eclectic; mixing energetic upbeat music and humorous lyrics from which
the band name suddenly makes perfect sense.
Inspired by parody rock, the music often drifts into blues, pop, funk and disco.
Come and have fun with us!!

definitely my Highlight of the Year!!! Originally formed as a trio with the legendary
STINKY LOU, back then playing the washtub and that you can nowadays go meet in his bar
in Liège Lou's Bar, offering live music every sunday, this Raw and dirty Boogie trio animated
LiquIDon the Blues & Jazz Rallye for several years and seriously contributed
on making LiquID's reputation too.

MISS SILKY SOL
This week's Thursday Blues Session, we are happy and proud to welcome
a very special collaboration. Carl Wyatt and his band the Delta Voodoo Kings
are have a special tour with this unique american singer Ms Silky Sol.
A gig definitely not to be missed!!!
Carl Wyatt has many years of playing the blues to his credit.
Having grown up in a blues, jazz and gospel environment,
it was natural for him to pick up playing the blues one day.
Although his main influences are artists such as Freddie King,
Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, Carl developed
his own style over the years. His love for delta blues made him
study slide guitar and gave him a more traditional approach to
the blues. Nevertheless, Carl is well able to let it rip and set the stage
on fire as he has done on many accasions.
Carl's live performances are a powerful blend of Texas, Chicago
and Delta Blues. During his career he has played and toured
with artists such as "Big Bo McGee", "Little Whitt Wells", "T.W. Henderson",
"Sharon Lewis", "Tino Gonzales", "Archie Lee Hooker"…., recorded
with all of the above mentioned artists and lived and jammed
with the Godfather of the Boogie "John Lee Hooker".
MISS SILKY SOL also known as the RED AFRO QUEEN is a blues, soul singer
from Saint Louis. Ms. Silky Sol’s musical roots run extremely deep
beginning with the love of gospel music.
Born as Felicia Summerville, daughter of the late great gospel artist,
promoter and radio announcer Ruby Summerville Dickson & her late father
& quartet singer Deacon Elmer Jones; her uncle Deacon Willie T. Summerville,
music professor at the University of Illinois & and the minister of music
for 43 years of the National Baptist Convention her grand- father,
the late Deacon Moses Summerville, Silky spread her wings early at the age
of three in her church choir.
After serving as a PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND SINGER for major r
ecording labels, artist and producers for over 27 years, sharing the stage
Head Lining with or as a Background Singer to name a few such artists as:
The O Jays, The Whispers, Chrisette Michele, Frankie Beverly & Maze,
Tina Marie, R-Kelly, Narda Michael Walden, India Arie, Pebo Bryson,
Jeffery Osborn, The Mighty Clouds of Joy Andrea Couch, Gladys Knight,
Barbara Mandrel, Mary j Blige...
She leaves a lasting impression as her explosive spirit kidnaps her audience
and sends them into a realm of musical addiction as you can witness on her
band page at http://www.reverbnation.com/redafroqueen
VINCENT THEKAL TRIO
This explosive trio will propose us an evening about
Monk's music. the trio has much fun exploring the
possibilities of this gigantic repertoire of this amazing
Music crosses national, religious and cultural boundaries and this is
as evident as ever in the sound, ideas and diversity of Clockwork Radio.
The band currently based in Manchester, consists of two Welshmen,
two Mancunians and an Egyptian.
This diversity of culture, sound and nationality has not always worked
in the band’s favour; battling it out over visa issues in order to get
bassist Nadim Mirshak permission to tour Europe, postponing African
tours due to the 2010 revolution in Egypt, and critics being unable to
pin-point a place for them in the current music scene.
Challenges that have made it even more of a priority for the band
to get out on the road to play as many shows, to as many people,
in as many countries as possible.
Since the release of their first EP ‘State of Mind’ in 2010, Clockwork Radio
have packed a lot into the last 24 months. That includes releasing 4 EPs,
performing on the same bill as The Prodigy, The Hives, Bombay Bicycle Club
and Skunk Anansie, along with multiple trips across Europe playing shows
on rooftops, streets, in cafes, clubs, boats, quarries, beaches and everything else
in-between, sometimes playing three or four sets a day.
With comparisons to classic and contemporary bands/artists such as The Police,
Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, MGMT and Florence + The Machine, Clockwork Radio
demonstrate the diversity and scope of their writing across their previous releases,
exploring genres as varied as Flamenco, Afro-beat, Electronica, Rock, Folk,
Disco and Funk.
Having made a conscious decision to work with underground artists across Europe
including Agnes Cecile (Italy) and Juan Carlos Riviera (Spain) to promote the artworks
that accompany and bring to life the music, Clockwork Radio were also the first
independent band to create a 360-degree interactive video for the single "Please You"
of the second EP "The Soul Harmonic" (released in November 2010).
Last year’s "Sketch" EP received support from industry tastemakers such as Steve Lamacq,
Jen Long, Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson & John Kennedy. The band have been getting
airplay, reviews and support across the world.
Clockwork Radio have just released their fourth EP "Ubuntu" with the lead single
"Feel It Up" already gaining national airplay and being featured as BBC6Music's MP3
of the day within hours of its release.
Clockwork Radio will be continuing the tour schedule across UK and Europe into next year.
"The Welsh/Egyptian/rest-of-the-world five-piece line-up of Clockwork Radio have easily
got a unique sound. Their latest EP release certainly throws together lots different vibes;
but vibes that mesh into something exciting and dynamic" Soundsofnowmusic.com
besides his other talents such as film producing and many more,
our good friend and family member is definitely one of the most talented
and well inspired country/folk/americana songwriter.
Lata has an incredibly busy and efficient year this year - besides winning the
Purple Idol competition and being selected as one of the headliners for
this year's Rock um Knuedler - the man will do us the honours this week's
Thursday Blues Session!
those of you who already know the man will know not to miss this show and we
strongly recommend to the others to come and discover this unique artist in
the luxembourguish music scene!
We love him and so will you!
LiquID JAZZ HOUSEBAND
featuring Greg Lamy
Another month is reaching to an end and it's time again for
our rendez-vous with our houseband. Composed of reknown
musicians of the local but also international scene, our houseband
is welcoming Monsieur Greg Lamy as a special guest this month.
a high quality and much fun rendez-vous not to be missed!

HEAVY PETROL & THE GREYHOUNDS
Heavy Petrol and the Greyhounds was originally founded in
2009 by some old friends that used to meet to jam together
every now and then.
These confirmed professionals play blues infused rock with
a modern edge flirting here and there with Rythm & Blues.
It's a bright mix of own compositions and well selected covers
from well-known artists like Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher,
Joe Bonamassa, Calvin Russell, J. Hendrix, Danny Briant,
Muddy Waters, Freddie King and many other...
A great show not to be missed for sure!
the A.A.'s is a fusion project reuniting two brothers,
Mathieu and Alexandre Ambroziak (guitar and drums)
that were experimenting different musical horizons for
almost a decade. These two young men are accompanied
by Antoine Viard on saxes.
The music of this atypic trio is a succession of abstract
textures and songs without lyrics, at times even flirting
with the pop-rock culture of the musicians teenage years.
This very stimulating free-jazz fusion implementing pure rock
elements as well evolves between written and improvised
music, at times peaceful and quiet, at times wildly shaking.
Their first record CRISIS EXIT praised by the press came
out last year and there is already a new one about to come
out in the next weeks.
well this week we are very happy to welcome back CHRIS THEPS for another one of our
ECLECTLIQ SESSION. If you like it rocking, if you like it loud, this Saturday LiquID
will be the place to be!!!!!
In 1994, Chris signed his first contract under the name Geronimo with Orlando
Productions, distributed by Polygram led at the time by a certain Pascal Negre ...
His first album title was "Generation des grandes contradictions"
That says a lot about the personality and unconventional paths of this artist
whose atypical image shines throughout parisian nights ...
After a few years of absence, Geronimo returns in the name of Chris
Theps with a new group and a new musical project.
"d'Hier à Today" his new album is sung in French, Spanish and English,
takes us into the best hours of french rock with compositions structured
around original texts full of meaning, a "pop" approach and talented and
professional set of musicians.
Accustomed to performing lives such as The Palace, Bobine, La Loco, I'Excalibur
Paris, or KGB and Otto Suts Barcelona, Chris gives his career a second wind
loaded with experience ...
Pleasure, sharing, sincerity and simplicity ....
FAT BOOM STICKA
& THE GREASE MONKEYS
Far from the traditional blues acts we are used to welcome,
we have decided to start this new blues season with some
seriously electrified rock n' roll/rockabilly ;)
To all the blues purists out there, don't worry we have a whole
lotta great blues coming up this season as well!
This trio is playing rock n' roll in the purest american tradition.
Composed of a drummer "fat boom sticka", a guitarist "ben monkey"
and a double bass player "chris monkey" this trio plays 50s and 60s
rock n' roll from artists such as Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley, The Sonics,
Vince Taylor, Billy Lee Riley, The Trashmen, Little Richard, Bo Didley,
Eddie Cochran and many more...

ALEX BEAURAIN QUINTET
This new quintet is definitly modern, both by the music
and by the musicians coming from Austria, France and Belgium.
The solid rhythm, provided by Toon Van Dionant on drums and
Olivier Stalon on bass, gives tunesmiths Gregor Siedl on sax,
Eve Beuvens on piano and Alex Beaurain on guitar fluency and
lightness which reveals the brilliance of the compositions.
These, all original, marked a rigorous writing work while leaving
a wide place for interpretation and improvisation.
Sensitive and energetic, the music comes to life through both
ballads with delicate harmonies than melodies with surprising
A great new project to come and discover!!!!

KADER FAHEM TRIO
one of the rare flamenco projects we are happy
to welcome within our regular jazz programmation :)
Born of a modest and large family, where the taste
for music was marked, Kader Fahem started learning guitar
at the age of 7. His first approach of the instrument was
dedicated to the traditional music of his Kabyle origins.
Two years later, he took part to a cultural event where
he mesmerized his audience and the local press: that
was an eye-opener.
Aware of the abilities of this young virtuoso, Kemji Fahem, his elder brother, decided to teach him the fundamentals of guitar. Even though he was himself an amateur, his relationships with Gypsies from the South of France had allowed him to discover part of flamenco's mystical world (Catalan rumba). A long apprenticeship period followed where he learnt chords and techniques, acquired velocity, which naturally led him to create his own amateur Gypsy flamenco band, the Flamenco Kids, at the age of 12.
As time went by, Kader Fahem acquired his own style, his personal touch. His love of flamenco combined with a strong will to learn pressed him to go deeper and discover on his own the different hidden sides of the "flamenco puro", the roots. He then dedicated his teenage years to study the soul and strength of this deep music. Outside the frame of any teaching system and with the sole inspiration he got from the great names of the genre (Paco de Lucia, Vicente Amigo, ...), he got familiar with the compas (flamenco rhythms such as buleria, allegria, tango) until he mastered them and finally created his own sound.
After he reached a certain maturity, he deemed necessary to travel to Andalusia, not only to immerse himself in the history and countryside that this region has to offer, but also to meet other "aficionados" (flamenco amateurs).?Aged 25 today, he is now a composer and performer in a flamenco-jazz style that stems from a cultural crossbreeding, influenced by his own life, childhood, travels and origins.
Today, far from the Hispanic grounds, he expresses through his works, his great sensitivity and his love for flamenco: "Flamenca guitar is the reflection of the soul".
His outstanding improvisation talent is built on a subtle a captivating play that mixes inspiration, technique and virtuosity. To interprete his compositions, Kader Fahem surrounded himself with two musicians with varied musical horizons. Their complicity in life shows on stage and their strong personalities give the band its singularity.
his new record "My gypsy way" is out since septembre 2010 in 240 countries...
THE SAYRE BROTHERS
rock n roll attitude??
these two brothers don't live for the blues, stare at them...
they are the blues.
At times dirty and messy, on others, delicately accurate,
George and Nick carry the ship with no compromises.
always a different experience, the audience never really
knows what to expect. A real LIVE gig, a real show too!
Whether you like them or hate them, they are always
worth the experience. We like and we hope you will :))
come enjoy :))
we are very proud and happy to welcome this amazing
and original project this week!
This trio composed of Christian Mariotto on the drums,
of Jean-Marc Baccarini on saxes and Philippe Canovas on
guitars is a very unique kind of combo. In absence of a
bass, it leaves the trio space and possibility to always
and constantly rearrange the music. Improvisation and
creativity is the key word here. The talent of these
musicians can fully express itself and takes us far from
the traditional jazz projects but we are definitely talking
about jazz in its truest form.
