AT THE HONKY TONK JAZZ CLUB (JUNE 10, 2017)    
   
Ilja De Neve and his band, Scotch No Soda, received on 8 June, Elmore D and Gilles in the cozy Honky Tonk Jazz Club (Dendermonde), where Elmore performed many years ago with Lazy Horse Timmermans, Big Dave and Willie Maze.

The room was again completely full of jazz and blues amateurs who gave a warm welcome to the non-purely revivalist rendition of country blues and pre-war artists like Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Blind Willie McTell, Kansas Joe McCoy, Bo Carter or Skip James - whose Hard Time Killing Floor  is on the list of the album Wama Bama Mama recently given by Ilja. The latter, on keyboards and vocals, with accompanied by Kurt de Bruyn, whose guitar entertained with Gilles’one an electric dialogue, Michal Teller on bass and Koen Van Peteghem on drums. Some Elmore James’ songs closed the show.
