Roel & Co

They love to take you on a nostalgic trip through the swing era, paying tribute to the crooners, known for their soft, arresting and above all, natural voices. Featuring the most beautiful hits from The Great American Songbook and the fantastic style of Louis Prima, Louis Amstrong, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald an many other masters of swing music.
“T’aint what you do it’s the way you do it!”
TWO OF US
A warm deep voice combined with a jazz piano provides the ultimate jazzy feeling that will set the mood at your event. Whether it’s the American crooner style, gypsy swing or Latin tunes, the choice is yours.
Another option is the fusion of a crooner rhythm guitar with the warm timbre of a trumpet. We play it nice and slowly!
THREE OF A KIND
The trio lineup is perfect for those looking for a compact jazz band with a diverse vocal range. Guitar, double bass and trumpet combined with 3 voices that blend incredibly smoothly into the most beautiful melodies from the swing repertoire.
Ideal for those who want an intimate atmosphere with an expanded musical palette, also suitable for those who already want to placate a dance!
FOUR IS MORE
Four is definitely more when a drum joins the trio lineup. The extra beat that joins immediately provides the “tha dums” needed to make it all swing once more. The extra beat also creates a nice groove: ideal for a dance, but also for those who prefer to listen.
FIVE MAKES THE JIVE
With 5 singers, sitting still is no longer an option. Trumpet and piano improvising the most beautiful jazz melodies, a tight rhythm guitar, the bass leading the way, the jungle beat rhythm of the drums and 3 voices blending perfectly together. Everything comes together in a vintage swing jazz band that does so much more than just bring swing jazz of the highest order!
Count on a bigger sound palette, schwung in the pan and people coming to ask you to dance because they have (re)discovered their dancing legs. Of course, the latter does not apply to a seated listening concert.
