Rhythm & blues is the order of the day with quartet VandeVen Band. Ever since 1999 the band members try to find their own way that is as original as possible in the world of New Orleans R&B, where artists like Dr. John and Fats Domino preceded. Without bass instrument they are just as able to produce a firm, transparent group sound, in an own style combining old and new. Since the album Ticket to Paradise the band of pianist/singer Clemens van de Ven has been a regular guest at festivals like Oerol, Parade and North Sea Jazz.
