Some years ago, I was sat by the river in Antwerp, playing a little clarinet, when a nice guy called Mario Janssens came by and took a great picture. I think it was used on some tourist info for Antwerp City.
This was the last day of our quick tour of the UK – we were just out for a pint at a local pub and there was a folk session going on. We asked if we could play a tune and my mate Peter caught it on his phone.
Here’s a clip of a live concert we did at a local bar a few weeks ago. Me on tenor sax, Piet Verbist on bass, Jonas Boutsen on drums and Robbe Willems on piano.
“An Sibhin” is my local bar in Antwerp, I often go to watch rugby or just have a beer and chat with Tony and the lads. It was real nice to play a concert there!
Looking forward to playing in the UK in a few weeks – here is the poster for our Cardiff gig.
A few years ago we went over to Wales, near where I grew up, to the small but lovely city of St Davids, to help my old mate and ace-chef Steven Lawton make a promo video. This was the result.
As you can see, I had caught a kittke bit of sun – but then I was co-starring with a lobster!
Well, it's been a pretty intense few days of working at the computer, but I am happy to be launching a complete update of www.danmcb.com (and also everything that was on the old Moochers website).
The new site is based on WordPress, and is designed for musicians. That means that I will be able to add new content, like videos and articles, much more easily. I still have a few tweaks to do, and I will add put back the old video content in the next days (but it's all still on my youtube channel, which you can reach via the menu, top right).
This is a few years back, at the Hot Club in Gent, with Simone Magliozzi. Simone is a great friend – we hit it off when we met at the Django Rheinhardt festival at Samois Sur Seine a few years ago – and a hugely talented young player. These days he plays a lot with ethe great Angelo de Barre in the Rome area – he is just getting better and better! Anyway, I hope you like our jam. We had a load of fun!
With my good friend Laurent Courtois, playing on the last night of the wonderful Festivalle in Sicily in August. The most amazing place I have every played!
