THE CRAZY HORSES
A nice bunch of pretty cool local musicians - that became friends of ours over the years by playing in LiquID with many various projects already - have come out with this pretty cool tribute project last year. Many of you certainly are familiar with Neil Young, folk, rock and americana idol for 50 years now and counting ;)
come enjoy folks!
We are really happy to welcome our good friends again!
Its always a pleasure and great musical moment to have them back home!
“Sneaky Pete” is a band which has lots of experience in the world of blues, blues rock, jazz blues, R&B, rock’n roll, soul, their personalization of popular songs, and their own music that they have written which has elements of all the music they enjoy playing. The line-up of the band is Claude Daleiden “Sneaky Pete” – guitars, vocals; Randolph “Randy” Melton, Jr. – vocals; Alfredo P. Delgado – drums; Claude “Yatz” Pleimelding – bass; and Ron “Rockin’ Ronny” Tuffel – harmonicas.
The music is up-tempo, driving, and certainly music you can “shake your tail feathers” to and dance. The main influence and direction of the music comes from the power and expression of the fluid vocals of Randy Melton; versatile and explosive guitar playing of Claude Daleiden; the rhythmic range, influence, and strength provided by the battery of drums and bass with Alfredo P. Delgado and Claude Pleimelding; and the tempting tones of the Mississippi harps from Ron Tuffel.
The music of contemporary and traditional Americana with an international cast of musicians representing Venezuela, Luxembourg, Slovenia, and the United States…. Sneaky Pete “LIVE” is a group with energy and savory musical flavor!
Another cool night in LiquID not to miss!
MAXIME BENDER 3
Maxime Bender tries to take a bold step and definitely move away from the typical jazz routine as we've come to know it. The safety of the usual harmonical and rythmical structures that usually shape jazz's identity and behavious are dissolved and recycled into something fresher, freer, newer and certainly more exciting, opening up new spaces of spontaneous composition, direct and instant musical communication, always aiming for a totally uninhibited flow of creative energy.
The Maxime Bender 3 are:
Maxime Bender (Saxophone)
Boris Schmidt (Bass)
Jonathan Levi (Drums)
Come enjoy this amazing trio with us!
Wanting to play a more free brand of rock, leaving room for improvisation, Jacques and Péter began rehearsing new material in the spring of 2012 as a side project while performing with their band, Radio Daze. They were joined by Oli in the summer, and the three built a repertoire of covers and original material, where Johnny Cash meets George Clinton for a night out in Luxembourg.
Though 2013 has been a difficult year for some of the guys for personal reasons, they found the energy to record an 11 track album, including 9 original songs that they hope to release soon. In October that same year, they also had the pleasure to open for Hungarian hard rock institution Tankcsapda in Brussels.
You know that feeling when the hair stands up on the back of your head when you hear that certain sound? When you get goose bumps from a certain little sound that happens to be just at the right place and the right time? This is what Fixfire: Jacques Bock (drums, backing vocals), Oli John (bass) and Peter Varkonyi (guitar and vocals), are after when they pick up their instruments and what they hope to share with you. With reviews ranging from "pretty darn good" to to those who found "un certain brio" in their playing, they seem to be doing okay so far. With their ever growing repertoir of original material and original twists on rock classics (think Pink Floyd, Steppenwolf, Hendrix, Neil Young etc.), Fixfire are bound to have something interesting for you.
Special guest this month will be Guillaume cherpitel on piano. We have had
the chance to welcome Guillaume on several gigs with very various projects
already and are much looking forward to this weeks collaboration!
For sure another night not to be missed!
For the second ECLECTLiq SESSION this week, we are happy to welcome another new comer
to LiquID and another beautiful discovery for you to make!
Ex-leader of (CO)-PILOT or LALA POWER the singer-guitarist songwriter Vincent BRICKS,
currently in exile in Paris and at least for the moment performing in solo, exudes a
genuine pop, melancholic and melodic as you wish, served by an undiscussably interesting voice,
full and slightly fragile both at the same time.
A sweetness hides his tortured soul, his songs behind a facade of love poetry,
let filter a scent of sex, a slight deviation which makes all the more appealing.
Come and discover this atypical and authentic artist...
Formed 8 years ago in Differdange, HBC has made it's way through numerous concerts. Solid Blues covers, done their way, create a steady blues-rock sound, grooving from boogie to funk. Varied repertoire topped with an authentic blues vocalist.
THE BOOGIE BEASTS
Alt. boogie/ trance blues/ garage rock
For the first ECLECTLiq SESSION this week we are really happy to welcome this new
and side project of our good friends THE GOON MAT and LORD BENARDO.
The boys will come this Friday with this quite new quartet project that pushes the limits
of their boogie with a lot more rock elements to it than what they happen to deliver in duet,
or in trio as we used to know them with their previous project STINKY LOU & THE GOON MAT.
Dirty beats, hypnotising slide, screaming harmonica riffs and plenty
of fuzz: all of these will be served by this four-men band from
Liège and Limburg, Belgium. In their greasy sound explosion,
the founding members of the psychedelic band Voodoo Boogie and
the insane garage duo The Goon Mat & Lord Benardo prove to be
the perfect match.
Boogie Beasts translate their penchant for electric Delta blues into a
most idiosyncratic sound, which has a touch of The Black Keys
jamming with John Lee Hooker at a rave in the wee hours of the
morning, or Morphine on a psychedelic trip with Little Walter,
or even RL Burnside backed up by the young Rolling Stones
at a juke joint-gig.
The drive is infectious, the noise is pure filth, yet highly irresistible…
Are you ready to boogie with the Beasts?
The Goon Mat : vocals/guitar
Jan Jaspers : vocals /guitar
Lord Benardo : harmonica
Gert Servaes : drums

very authentic pop solo act..
See you all there ;)
TODD BISHOP GROUP
Todd Bishop is currently doing a European Tour with his new project and we are proud and happy to welcome him in LiquID this week again!
Another concert not to be missed!
Todd Bishop born 1967 in Portland, Oregon, has been performing and teaching professionally in the US and internationally since 1985. He has led jazz, avant-garde and indie rock groups and produced six CDs of original music for Seattle's Origin Records and for independent release. With his unique multi-layered, organic percussive approach, he is a compelling musician, and has thrilled audiences with visceral performances owing as much to the influence of Olatunji or Keith Moon as to the jazz masters.
He released two CDs with the jazz power trio Flatland. The Satellite is a largely groove-oriented album with early Bishop arrangements of two Don Cherry tunes, and produced by Tony Lash (Elliot Smith, Dandy Warhols). The second CD, Origin of Species, bore Bishop's stamp as producer and arranger, highlights including several dark, cinematic soundscape pieces, and “Malheur”, a propulsive drum solo. The group was a significant regional presence from 1998-2002, and shared bills with such acts as Galactic, Charlie Hunter, Wayne Horvitz, and Herbie Hancock's Headhunters.
Next came the ambient, delicately-textured free improvisations of Lower Monumental, which released Mayday Session, a live broadcast performance on Seattle's Sonarchy Radio. Features a spontaneously-rendered Bishop composition, “Headlights.”
The movie-music/international pop-oriented Pop Art 4 is Bishop's most ambitious project to date. In 2009 the group released 69 Année Érotique — the music of Serge Gainsbourg, and made European tours in 2009 and 2010. Several additional CDs are in development, including free interpretations of the music of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo, Lalo Schifrin's Dirty Harry soundtrack.
Bishop is also the author of the blog Cruise Ship Drummer!, one of the leading Internet sites on jazz drumming.
Bishop studied classical percussion with Charles Dowd at the University of Oregon, and, under scholarship, jazz studies with Gregg Field (Count Basie) and John Thomas (Woody Herman, Chick Corea) at the University of Southern California. He also completed six national tours with DCI-affilliated drum and bugle corps, including, in 1986, the famous Santa Clara Vanguard, which finished second nationally that year. He was instructed by drum corps greats Ralph Hardimon, George Tuthill, and Fred Sanford, as well as leading rudimental specialist Alan Keown.
Also accomplished in visual media, he is a prolific photographer, and is one of the major providers of photographic imagery for Origin Arts. As a painter, Bishop creates richly textured abstract landscapes echoing Oregon farm country and wilderness in oils. He is represented by the Provenance gallery (Eugene, OR), and his work has been collected by buyers on four continents.
Born Weber Ribeiro Drummond in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on February 17th1962. It wasn’t until mid 90’s that Weber adopted the stage name Weber Iago as a homage to the Roma People, also known as Gypsies.
Iago has spent all of his musical life researching different types of sounds, ultimately dedicating most of his endeavors to uniting elements of Classical, Jazz and Brazilian Music.
Born a last century’s fall, Olivier Stalon waited around 20 springs to take his first lesson with Maarten Weyler in Antwerp.
When he was able to use 2 strings and less than fifteen centimetres of his guitar, he decided to try to use the entire surface off his bass neck and became a pupil of Michel Hatzi at Brussel’s Conservatory.
Thanks his new skills, he played with different bands, combo & big-bands in several conservatories & workshops.
As electricity became more and more expensive; Olivier bought an upright bass. And, the owner’s manual was written in Czechoslovak, he asked Jean-Louis Rassinfosse and Bart Denolf for some instructions.
Simultaneously, he started his career with musicians, singers, bands from Belgium, France, Germany and Tunisia. One thing leading to another, he toured with those artists all around Europe and Africa. Simultaneously he transmitted his experience and culture to Belgian, Tunisian and Luxemburgish students.
Jean-Paul Estiévenart was born in Belgium on March 14, 1985. His grandfather observed that he loved the trumpet, so he learns to him the first steps. At the age of 6, he begins to study this instrument at the St. Ghislain Academy. Ten years later, he discovers jazz and he decides to devote himself to it. He took lessons from Richard Rousselet, François Descamps, Fabrice Alleman and Fred Delplancq.
He freelances in the young Belgian jazz scene with colleges on different occasions in clubs.
In 2006, Jean-Paul Estiévenart won the Django d’Or 2006 (young talent award) and he was chosen to participate at the European Youth Jazz Orchestra 2007, under the direction of the dDanish saxophonist and composer Lars Møller, to represent his country, Belgium.
PIT DAHM TRIO
Featuring MATISS CUDARS
Our friend Pit Dahm is back in LiquID with his dutch trio and an amazing workoholic musician as special guest this Saturday. Based in Amsterdam, this band consisting of three musicians from three different countries brings together a special mix of composed and free improvised music. They all met between 2010 and 2013 in the Netherlands and play together together in different projects. In the beginning of 2013, the Luxembourgish drummer Pit Dahm decided to bring Charley Rose (F) and Lennart Heyndels (B) together into one band. Enjoying the unknown, being spontaneous on stage and while playing makes this acoustic trio great to experience. Being fans of various kinds of music from classical music to heavy metal, the musicians manage to blend different emotions, feelings thoughts and instincts into a coherent picture.

Matīss Čudars, born in 1991, is a Latvian jazz guitar player and composer.
He's been acknowledged as one of the most prominent up-raising young music talents from the Baltic States.
His unique, highly personal sound, together with the artistically integral, energetically saturated and yet lyrical compositions gives an esthetic enjoyment to a music knower, as well as to a regular listener. The music he plays encompasses a variety of different music genres - strong investment in the jazz improvisation, folk music integrity, the indie rock energy, and classical music harmony.
Musicians characterize his music as emotionally touching, interactive, melodical contemporary jazz.
VECCHI & BRUTTI
No doubt: these Old Guns still have got some bullets left...
The energy powered rhythm & blues from that old band Vecchi e Brutti
(meaning Old & Ugly), is mainly inspired from Rhythm' N' Blues roots:
rough voice, plumbed guitar riffs, for a sensual, electric and wild
Rhythm' N' Blues, made of iron and roses.
But Rhythm is not enough: you gotta have the Blues, and it must explode in many ways,
delirious guitar and harp chorus, Flavio the voice, Pierrot the rhythm, Grand Kac the bass player
and Denis the harp player are all coming from a well known band from the 90's called
B.Movie - later joined in by Flo on guitars.
A unique band, a unique sound and definitely an awesome evening garanteed!!!
RO GEBHARDT TRIO
Roland Gebhardt is a german jazz guitarist of the finest kind!
He is touring worldwide for more than 30 years now and is doing us the honours this week with his new trio formed some time last year.
His music is a mix of cool laidback jazz and high standard modern jazz songwriting.
This new trio and the incredible musical skills of his comparses allow Ro to explore
and define brand new grounds.
