Artistes

ERIC-JAN OVERBEEK (HOL) PIANO & VOCALS

Eric-Jan Overbeek Hard drivin’, old school Rhythm & Blues, complemented by some killer Boogie Woogies, by the fastest, flashiest, piano-thumping boogie man from the Netherlands. Yes, that’s right. This Dutch based, drive by piano player hits hard and will take no prisoners! As soon as he starts pounding the ivories, you’ll be on your way to the Land of Good Times.

”We can definitely say Mr. Boogie Woogie is not an acquired taste. His enthusiastic piano attacks are instantly accessible. He starts playing, you start smiling.” C. Graham - Tucson Citizen

Mr. Boogie Woogie (aka) Eric-Jan Overbeek was born on April 5, 1967 in Nieuw-Vennep, the Netherlands. Mesmerized by that old piano in the living room, Eric-Jan began studying classical piano at the age of eight. He demonstrated early an extraordinary talent for musical arrangement and got his first job at age twelve playing piano as an accompanist for dance classes. In April 2011 Overbeek was voted Best Dutch Blues Pianist 2010. A title he was nominated for again in 2013. He also won the prestigious title of Best European Blues Pianist 2005 in the company of the many of the world's best blues artists.

LUCA SESTAK (ALE) PIANO & VOCALS

Luca Sestak Luca was born on January 10, 1995 in Celle (Niedersachsen). At age 7 he was introduced to the piano by his father, but didn’t show much interest. For that reason two years later his parents sent him to a piano teacher who still gives him classical lessons. In 2008 Luca took part in the local piano solo competition “Youth plays music” and won 1st prize with advancement to the State Contest level. After two years of c lassical piano lessons Luca accidentally discovered jazz and with that also the Blues and Boogie Woogie. He self-trained and studied his first pieces of this music style and presented them at various occasions with great success.

At age 11 he published some of his pieces on the internet platform YouTube where they quickly achieved great popularity. With rising recognition numerous performances at festivals and concerts followed in his home country as well as abroad with big-name pianists of the genre such as Silvan Zingg, Vince Weber, Bob Seeley, Frank Muschalle and Ben Waters. Luca recorded his first CD album “Lost in Boogie” in August 2010 which was published in November of that year. One year later, Luca participated in the biggest Boogie Woogie Festival of the world in Laroquebrou, France. In 2014 Luca released his second album NEW WAY.

Today Luca’s program contains mainly his own compositions and interpretations in which he expresses his unmistakable style. He includes in these the most varied directions of music from the blues and boogie through jazz and funk all the way to pop, rock and the classics.

JULIEN BRUNETAUD (FRA) PIANO & VOCALS

Julien Brunetaud Pianist, Singer Songwriter, Julien Brunetaud has played alongside well-known artists such as Chuck Berry, BB King. He was voted best European and French Blues piano player.

Led by an undoubtedly groovy voice and piano, he takes us into his own gaming space for his fourth album "Playground". Inspired by piano masters from the Crescent city Professor Longhair, Dr John ou Harry Connick jr, he introduces his compositions and revisits a couple of traditional standards.

Playground proposes an original take on Contemporary blues piano.

CHRISTIAN CHRISTL & SCARLETT ANDREWS (ALE) PIANO & VOCALS

Scarlett Andrews y Christian Christl Scarlett Andrews, vocal and Christian Christl, Piano, play their music in Vaudeville-Blues-Tradition. For more than ten years both have been playing concerts together all over Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Hungaria.

Scarlett Andrews sings with a elegant naughty touch. She digs deep into each song and makes it come alive. Scarlett is one of the few singers we have today to sing Vaudeville-Blues.

Christian Christl, Piano, plays, what he calls „Vintage Blues & Boogie“. He loves the music that was played in the Barrelhouses before they started calling it „Boogie Woogie“. Christian Christl says, he learned how to play from people that did not play Piano: Louisiana Red, Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, Angela Brown and many others. He opened shows for Ray Charles and B.B. King and was awarded with the German Boogie Woogie Award "Pinetop".

Scarlett and Christian are a great team. They love to be on stage and have fun. And you can feel the joy in every note the play and sing.
