Battle of the Bands – April 24th – Silo

24-3-16 Silo_4Jazz culture has long stimulated both fierce competition and intimate musical camaraderie. In the 1930s and 1940s, battle of the bands competitions attracted the most ardent fans and showiest musical acts. Participants chose the winners by dancing the most ecstactically or clapping the loudest. Together with Lets Swing, help us stir up a little European competition as the Groningen Student Big Band takes on the Big Band of Universite Libre du Bruxelles at Groningen’s home of big band swing and dancing – the Silo.
