Van Dijk 4 – 24/09/20

Thursday 24th September 2020
Doors open from 7:30PM
Music from 8pm
10 Exhibition St, Bowen Hills: JMI Live


Jan Van Dijk has been entrenched in the Gypsy and Swing scenes in Australia and abroad for over fifteen years. New Orleans has become a second home and a source of constant inspiration. In Australia he performed regularly with Gypsy Jazz great Ewan MacKenzie in his ensemble Swing Dynamique and with accordionist John Reeves in Swing Musette amongst others.

Van Dijk’s approach to early Jazz is a reflection of what’s happening now in the streets and clubs of New Orleans.Traditional Jazz and Gypsy Jazz musicians are becoming more and more interchangeable in each other’s bands there and the great old songs are going through yet another evolution. Along with some early blues and string band influences The Van Dijk 4 pay homage to this phenomenon with a healthy mix of reverence and irreverence.
