Folk act not just another tribute

Liverpool band Dead Belgian is coming to The Roomz, in Western Road, St Leonards on Saturday, June 22.

This four piece band is quickly making a mark with praise from the likes of Mojo Magazine, Uncut and Froots.

The Dead Belgian being referenced is Jacques Brel who rose to fame in France during the 1960s.

His work had a major influence on many notable singer songwriters including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Marc Almond, Scott Walker, Nina Simone and even Nirvana.

His most famous songs are Amsterdam and Ne Me Quitte Pas.

But this is no mere tribute act, Dead Belgian creates a unique song while still paying homage to the man himself, or as UK Folk Radio put it: “Dead Belgian have created a sound that is all their own, while remaining true to the spirit of Jacques Brel’s music and poetry.”

The Roomz is at 33-35 Western Road, St Leonards.

Doors at open at 7pm, and admission is free though contributions are welome.
