The Brussels Jazz Marathon 2008 just ended this week-end for its 13th consecutive edition. 125 concerts were spread out from Friday to Sunday through outdoor stages for the biggest venues and the remaining larger portion indoors of around 50 bars, pubs and cafés of Brussels. And best of All it’s once again 100% FREE… Here are some pictures of Saturday’s evening.

The Tropa Bar which I was going to for the first time looks like a very nice place for an intimate set with the performing artists. From personal knowledge it's the only Filipino ran joint of this sort in Brussels and surely will be back for more fun. Great atmosphere and people with a lot of expats, closest I've felt from actually being in the Philippines.

Last but not least Leo and the lunar tiki's sure seems to be a local band worth giving a try if you're looking of a live gig in the city. Hopefully next time I won't have to be in many places at once 🙂 I did come back but everything was over by then.



PS: I Added three more photos of the lunar tiki's

Thanks Vince for the pictures & revue … it's a pitty you've missed our sets -we played untill about one 'o' clock -hope to sioux soon at one of our gigs … as Simon said we play regulary at The TROPA BAR but also elsewhere for example at The CHURCHILL's pub (near Place de la Monnaie) on 20 september and try to renew our sets with new original Rock songs and some classic soul covers each time we play in the Center of Brussels….check it out

My camera kinda crapped out on me a bit later that evening (gladly its a minor thing fixed). The initial plan was to be back after checking out a few other gigs.. But since it wasn't working anymore and I didn't want to carry the dead weight around I decided drop it home, come back & let the beer flow, enjoying my time but that delay screwed up my schedule.

Be sure I'll check it out next time!

Hello Simon,

Seems I can't be there this time around. If nothing changes I am going to have to work. Guess I'll have to wait for the next one of your gigs.
