“We can only underline the versatility of this ensemble; they don’t just stick to one style of music. A complete experience and a beautiful tapestry of sound that makes us dream away and that blends modesty and exuberance.”

Erik Van Damme; Musiczine

“The quality of the compositions, the tight leadership and the natural playfulness ensure that this little hour of big band music doesn’t get boring for a second.”

Dani Heyvaert; Rootstime

About Q-Some Big Band

Q-Some Big Band is a place for development and encounter where the newest generation of (jazz)composers and musicians meet and challenge each other. It is a platform to explore the possibilities within the genre and to let a new, contemporary wind blow through the big band landscape. With their constantly innovative programmes and unexpected musical collaborations, this orchestra crosses boundaries, in which the passion for the profession, the warmth within the band and, above all, the bigger dreams are clearly audible.
