Two saxophones and a drumkit. The masked musicians of BLOW trio don’t need anything else to move audiences to their knees. The line up is as basic as it is effective. In the continual digitalisation of live performance, BLOW trio stands out. BLOW trio is pure, acoustic music. You can feel that everything is real, live, in the moment, from the heart.
The masked trio started playing during the Gentse Feesten, week-long festival in the city of Ghent. They soon built a large following (11K followers on Facebook). BLOW trio has now grown to a true stage group that bursts with energy. They won the title “Young Talent” of the Theater Aan Zee in August 2016. They played at festivals such as LeffingeLeuren, Copacobana, Jazz in ’t Park, in het OLT Rivierenhof and in clubs including Vooruit, Charlatan, 4AD, Arenberg and Trix.
Why is BLOW trio so successful to such a wide audience? Lovers of dance music enjoy the pounding beats and repetitive rhythms, jazz afficionados enjoy the elaborate improvisations and wild outbursts, rock and metal heads recognise the energy of their beloved genre. A Facebook fan said: “I used to hate saxophone music, that was before I discovered BLOW trio”.
The two saxophones roar like guitars or pump like synths supported by a groovy drum section. BLOW trio is something of everything, but very clearly itself.
