The great Adolphe Sax was born on 6 November 1814, reason enough to declare this day Saxophone Day. There are a number of concerts planned in AB where the saxophone plays a central role. Discover them with us.
TUE 13.11.18 - COLIN STETSON: ‘ALL THIS I DO FOR GLORY’ – Buy tickets
This American sax player is an expert in circular breathing (he seemingly plays his instrument without pausing for air), plays in the live-bands of Bon Iver and Arcade Fire (amongst others), recently released solo album ‘All this I do for Glory’ and will soon come to present it in an AB Theatre setting. A must-see!
SUN 09.12.18 - JUNGLE BY NIGHT – Buy tickets
Those who want to see nine musicians set the stage of the AB Club aflame must head down to Brussels on December 9. Jungle by Night brings to life a combination of funk, afrobeat, dub and jazz, with unbelievable energy. Aside from the saxophone, it’s mainly the trumpet that is used to – literally – blow you away.
MON 18.03.19 - TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE – Buy tickets
Trombone Shorty didn’t steal his nickname. As child of a musical family, he was taught trombone… as there were already enough trumpet players in the family. A born New Orleans musician, he was already performing at the age of five. In March, he comes to AB with a true jazz band.
