String Carpet

In the course of the years I’ve been a member of several different Swing Bands. My last and certainly most fun one was the Belgian Quartet String Carpet with its home base in Brussels, Belgium.

I met my three colleges during our jazz studies at the conservatory of Brussels and it became clear pretty quickly that we did not just share a particular love for swing music but a specific leaning towards a nice shrill and piercing humour. We never recorded a CD but instead produced three nice videos whose potential for amusement and exhilaration was tested oftentimes and passed the test. ;-).
