To the 14th edition of Blues & Boogie Reunion , annual Blues & Boogie Woogie piano meeting in Spain.


A show full of rhythm and joy. 2 pianos on stage, 4 pianists playing the hottest style on the 88 keys, Boogie Woogie. Great Blues & Boogie Woogie piano players as the Boogie Woogie piano legend Bob Seeley (USA), Ben Waters (UK), Lasse E. Jensen (DEN) and Lluís Coloma will share the stage during two evenings playing each solo sets and some piano duets. Two magic concerts, the best gift for Christhmas.



Bob Seeley Born in Detroit, Bob Seeley, now in his 89 years old, is universally hailed as the greatest proponent of boogie woogie and stride alive today. His hands travel at the speed of sound, his fingers almost at the speed of light, touching down briefly to stroke an ivory or ebony key before speeding on to another. With a wide repertoire, more than 100 songs, Bob plays Boogie Woogie, Blues, Ragtime, Stride… with an unmatched vitality and mastery.

His most conspicuous influence was Meade Lux Lewis, one of the three giants of boogie woogie (along with Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson), and a great friend of Seeley's. Bob first met the maestro during a Detroit gig in the late 1940s and a longstanding friendship in the 1950s and 1960s developed, which influenced Seeley's piano styling and has resulted in a very rhythmical form of boogie woogie. He also had a chance to play piano with none less than Art Tatum, who reportedly was duly impressed with the music of the relative youngster, with Eubie Blake and with Sippie Wallace, the great blues vocalist, among others.

He is an indomitable soul who has played at Carnegie Hall several times and most of the major venues throughout Europe in France, Germany, Austria, Ireland, Norway, Holland... Bob has played and taught many performances and seminars all over USA. Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones Pianist) wrote him up, and he is considered in the books about Boogie Woogie story as one of the most important exponent of this style. In July 8th 2002 Bob was inducted along with Johnny Johnson (Chuck Berry's pianist) into the Boogie Woogie Piano Hall Of Fame in Cincinnati, Ohio.


Lasse Jensen Lasse Jensen was born in 1991 and is despite his young age the only boogie woogie specialist in Denmark. He started out playing rock 'n' roll, but was hit by the boogie woogie fever in 2006, when he heard Albert Ammons' 'Boogie Woogie Stomp' for the first time.

Since then, Lassehas listened to and studied a lot of boogie woogie, has published 3 cd's, performed in 9 European countries, playing with Axel Zwingenberger, Silvan Zingg, Jörg Hegemann, Frank Muschalle and many others.

Since 2011, Lasse has hosted an annual boogie-woogie concert with international pianists in Denmark, trying to arouse a public interest in this great, swinging music.


Ben Waters Ben Waters woke up one morning at the age of about 14 to find he could play piano! Fascinated by the rhythms of the Deep South he fell in love with the music of the great boogie woogie, rock ‘n roll and blues men. Working hard from the age of 16 in virtually every venue in his home county of Dorset in England, he was catapulted at the age of 18 into a professional musical career by a request from Shakin’ Stevens who asked him to accompany him and his band on an international tour.

Ben Waters, phenomenal boogie woogie and rock ‘n roll pianist, has been rocking the world, playing and recording with many legends as The Rolling Stones, Ray Davies, Jools Holland, for more than 25 years. Stand by for a fun evening with authentic rock ‘n roll,  jazz and quirky originals.


Lluís Coloma Lluís is considered the best Blues & Boogie Woogie pianist in Spain, and is also well-known throughout Europe and Asia as one of the masters of these styles. His music is unique, with a special personal touch that makes him an exceptional pianist and composer, combining traditional Blues & Jazz music with his special Spanish and Catalan flavour.

After hearing the sounds of Jerry Lee Lewis, Roosevelt Sykes and Alan Price he migrated from classical lessons to self-taught Rock & Roll, eventually showing a remarkable ability for Blues and Boogie Woogie piano. Lluís Coloma is now one of the most recognized and in demand pianists in the world Blues and Boogie Woogie piano scene.

Lluís has received accolades and music awards such as “Best Catalan Musician 2003” and “Artista BluesCat 2006”. He often appears at Blues & Boogie Woogie festivals in Europe and Asia, where he stands out for his virtuosity and originality, and his performances are often received with standing ovations.

Festival de Jazz de Madrid. Jamboree in Barcelona, Cerdanyola Blues Festival, among others, as well as in countries including USA, France, England, Malaysia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Serbia, Hungary and Malaysia.
