Today, February 26, 2019, Quintessence Bigband has been renamed Q-Some Big Band. The same band, the same dream, the same essence, the essential: music. But then a gear up: soon the crowdfunding for our new CD, which we want to record this fall, will start too. And for that we need you! Stay tuned!

About Q-Some Big Band

Q-Some Big Band (° 2015) (formerly ‘Quintessence Bigband’) is a big band of young, talented musicians. With their own composers such as Manten Van Gils, Jan Van Moer, Robbe Willems, Pierre-Antoine Savoyat and Gabriele di Franco, they are pursuing an unprecedented creative course in their dreamin’ programmes. In addition, QBB regularly comes out with a musical guest in a wide range of genres – with invariably innovative arrangements.
