BIVOAC in Belgium!

In Few written notes on August 24, 2015 at 7:30 pm

Dear friends,

BIVOAC is a group that plays Celtic music mixed with manouche style and banjo, some jazz notes and a pure traditional style. This is a jazz blog… So why do I present this group? Because jazz is a result of so many influences that sometimes it’s good to go back to your roots :-).

If you are in Belgium, lucky you ! You will have the privilege to take part of this incredible musical show. Don’t miss it!

You will listen to :

Ronan Le Gouriérec – saxophone baryton, bombarde
Ronan Robert – diatonic accordion, voice
Raphaël Chevalier – violin, banjo
Laurent Carré – saxophone ténor
Jean-Marie Nivaigne – drums
Jean-Louis Pommier – trombone
Geoffroy Tamisier – trumpet


Saturday 29 August 2015 at 4 pm in Wilrijk near Antwerp (
Sunday 30 August 2015 at 8.30 pm at Boombal Festival in Lovendegem near Ghent (

Enjoy !
