"The Mellvids" Big Band

”The Mellvids” are a 20 piece big band from Gent, Belgium. The composition of the orchestra is that of the swing big bands and jazz orchestras of the thirties & fourties and has 4 sections : trombones, trumpets, saxophones and rhythm. The band is conducted by Florence Belliere, who is also a professinal trumpet player. Solo vocalists are Chantal Himbrecht and Andre Dheere. The big band not only plays the inevitable traditional swing repertoire, but also latin, ballads, and even rock and funk. In general the music played invites to dance.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
