Born in 2015 out of the collaboration between the arranger Mathieu Najean and the dancer Sep Vermeersh, Reverent Juke has its roots in the golden era of swing.
With an explosive rhythm section built on the swinging drums of Tom Lambrecht, the bouncing bass and singing of Andrew Bolton and the wild stride of Julien Gillain, Reverent Juke sets the swing on fire with its three blowers, Martin Bolton on clarinet, Olivier Faber on trumpet and Mathieu Najean on reeds, blowing their horns on the fiery flames till they drop.
They are a badass and very versatile Swing Band that can go from early and New Orleans jazz, to the essence with hard swinging 30's style, all the way up to the swinging and bluesin' fifties.
In 2019 they released We Are The Juke, their first album, composed of 12 songs of pure swing, followed in 2021 by A Night With The Jukes, a vinyl featuring 10 songs recorded live.
Born in Ghent, raised in Brussels, Reverent Juke is now attending Lindy Hop festivals everywhere in Europe.
