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).

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), Roffaswing 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.
Brothers Thomas and Max started playing together in 2007 and played their first gig just three months later. Nowadays they still love to play in their original setup of two guitars. The duo works best in smaller intimate settings such as private concerts, presentations, openings, dinner parties, lectures, ceremonies, bistro’s or as an intermezzo between other acts.
