The Hop-sh-bam Connection Marie – Anne brought together this band for the “first international mini-exchange” organised by inside jazz and the dance collective “Gentse Hoppers”, in May 2011. This was a little festival for authentic swing dancing in Ghent. Meanwhile Marie – Anne is herself passionate about swing dance, and she definitely knows which tempos and which tunes she can play to make the people go crazy… She surrounded herself with four musicians who are in the same “state of mind,” and the result is The Hop-sh-Bam Connection. The beating heart of the band is the drummer Tony Gyselinck, known from the legendary BRT (Belgian public broadcast corporation) bigband, from The Rhythm Junks, and many other bands. The young double bass player has Italian roots, and his name is Guiseppe Millaci. “ Xavier-ô-clavier “ is the piano player, and sometimes a real crooner when he sings some tunes. Marie – Anne writes the arrangements, plays the trumpet, and sometimes, like many other trumpet players in the jazz history, she also sings a smooth melody. Put on your dancing shoes and swing with us!
