In the meantime, here's some info about our band (in case you didn't figure it out yet: Solid Jive is a blues band):

Solid Jive brings together four musicians who - in several bands - have been making their ways throughout the blue minded circuit in Flanders and Holland for the last twenty years.

One half of the repertoire goes back to the material of a wide range of blues artists, from Skip James to Willie Dixon, Magic Sam, Willy Cobbs, T. Bone Walker and Elmore James, to Peter Green and Greg Allman. The band is partial to the early Chicago-style. Furthermore, some of the favourite songs on the play list are obscure diamonds from artists like Jimmy Byfield or Thomas Davis.

The other half of the repertoire consists of own material and arrangements. In making up their own riffs and tunes, Solid Jive explores the limits of the classic 'twelve bars'.
-----------------------------------------------
Solid Jive brengt vier muzikanten samen die in de voorbije twintig jaar in divers gezelschap hun sporen hebben verdiend, dwars doorheen het blue-minded circuit in Vlaanderen en Nederland.

Voor de ene helft van het repertoire wordt geput uit het werk van de meest uiteenlopende grootheden (van Skip James tot Peter Green en Greg Allman) en de minder gekende 'goden', met een zwak voor obscure pareltjes (o.a. van Jimmy Byfield en Thomas Davis), en met een voorliefde voor de vroegere Chigaco-stijl (o.a. Willie Dixon, Magic Sam, Willy Cobbs, T. Bone Walker, Elmore James, ...).

De andere helft van het repertoire bestaat uit arrangementen en eigen nummers, waarbij het verkennen van de grenzen van de klassieke 'twelve bars' niet wordt geschuwd.

Lyrics:

Night Ridin' daddy
I'd like to talk to you
Rambling pony
Cold blooded woman
Mellow me down
Bad bad whiskey
Messing with the kid
Hard time killin' floor blues
Morning train

Keep the blues alive!
