Young talent in the style of Django Reinhardt and the Rosenberg Trio!
The Thomas Baggerman Trio consists of the brothers Thomas (‘88) and Max (‘90) Baggerman on guitars, and Machiel Willemsen (‘70) on doublebass. Together they play gypsy swing with touches of bebop, latin, bossa nova, tango and classical music: originals and standards. All this with a contemporary touch and always straight from the heart.
Since the start of the trio in 2009, the boys have created a buzz at home and abroad. Among the many gigs were festivals such as Jazz in Duke Town, Breda Jazzfestival, Django Reinhardt Festival Hildesheim (GE), Festival Django Liberchies (BE), Django Memorial Augsburg (DE) and the worlds most famous Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois sur Seine (FR).

The Thomas Baggerman Trio plays mostly at festivals, in theaters, and at music venues at home and abroad. Thomas is recognized (inter)nationally as one of the best upcoming gypsy guitarists of his generation. With a great dynamic rhythm section supporting him, the trio is known to deliver a great spectacular show every time. The gentlemen also like to collaborate with other artists and have shared the stage with Tim Kliphuis, Frits Landesbergen , Ed Boekee , Max Bedouelle (FR) and many others.
The trio is also a fantastic enhancement to any event, whether it’s a wedding, private party or corporate function.
Previous clients include: Bol.com, ABN-AMRO, Damen Shipyards, Hogeschool Utrecht, Ontwerpstudio Jan des Bouvrie, Het Nederlands Architectuurinstituut, Het Openluchtmuseum and Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Playing acoustic instruments we can easily adjust our volume to your wishes. We are happy to tailor our performance to suit your event perfectly.
In the summer of 2012 the trio started a succesful collaboration with young and talented jazzvocalist Eva Scholten. Soon noticed by programmers at home and abroad, the band has already played at festivals such as the Django Reinhardt festival in Samois s/ Seine and Django á Liberchies in Belgium.
Eva sur Seine has since released two EP’s and is currently regarded as one of the most promising groups in the Netherlands. Visit evasurseine.com for more info.
Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt is the founder of what we now call gypsy jazz and is still the major inspiration for musicians playing this genre today. In this show the trio dives into the world of ‘jazz manouche’ bringing you back to where it all started: Paris of the 1930’s. Using a unique combination of images and music, the band takes you on a vibrant journey from Django’s birth to the present. A time in wich gypsy jazz is perhaps more alive then ever before.
Balboa is a form of swing dance from the 1930’s and 1940’s that is increasingly popular today. Balboa dancers love to dance to gypsy jazz because of the tempo and strong groove. The trio has succesfully played at numerous Balboa events such as Shuffle Amsterdam (regular band) and All Jazzed Up (UK). Also the trio offers a musicality workshop to take the interaction between dancers and the musicians to a higher level.
