Last couple of months The Jig played a good number of shows in The Netherlands. At the most recent concert, the band hooked up with one of worlds finest alto sax players Benjamin Herman in a packed Theatre De Veste in Delft. Occasion was the yearly JustJazz festival of the Groover Jazz students. Wow, what a night. have look at the photo’s and the video below. Always a party when The Jig comes to visit you! That’s exactly what they thought in Brazil as well: The Jig Goes Brazil! In August the band will perform 3 times at the Rio das Ostras Jazz&Blues festival. Giants like Marcus Miller, Randy Brecker, Raul Midon and HBC (Scot Henderson, Jeff Berlin and Dennis Chambers) will be performing on this festival too.
Goes without saying The Jig is honored to be part of that bill. On Saturday 16 august, The Jig will play on the main Costazul stage. After the festival, they’ll head to Sao Paulo to play at the Serralheria club. Great news, even better news is: you don’t have to go over all the way to Brazil to enjoy the band live. This Sunday, you can them in their hometown Amsterdam when they’ll be playing the festival of the Rollende Keukens in Westerpark: good music, great food, free entry: see you there !
