Presented in association with Autumn Jazz Balbriggan.
From The Netherlands, The Busquitos play a very catchy mix of brilliantly played music, sung with an impressive Louis Armstrong-like voice and dazzling, funny entertainment that will put a smile on everyone’s face! When the time is right, they mingle with the audience and play a serenade, organize a limbo, or get the audience singing along to one of their catchy jazz tunes. Happy swingin’ music for all ages! Jelle van Tongeren, violin, and Thomas Streutgers, saxophone, are two brilliant instrumentalists who have been showing their skills on stages all around Europe and beyond. To round out this swinging quartet they invited guitarist, Daniel Versteegh and bassist/vocalist, Ronald de Jong to join them.
The Busquitos play a large variety of music that goes back as far as the 'roaring twenties' and right up to the hits of today. Hot Club, Jazz, Pop, Rock’n’Roll, Classical, you’ll hear it all! Music from Disney, Django Reinhart, the Mills Brothers, Sonny Rollins, and Irving Berlin, just to name a few.
