Rapidman is a Ghent (BE) based quintet consisting of 2 horns (alto saxophone and trombone), electric bass, drums and electronica. Hereby creating a unique sonic palette. Their influences are found in alternative rock, contemporary jazz and avant-garde. They form the engine for melody-driven and energetic themes.
All five musicians are well known in the Belgian music scene and abroad, playing in numerous different settings and genres a.o. Flat Earth Society, Nordmann, Gwen Cresens Quartet, H A S T, Del Vita, Bravo Bigband, Arno, Arsenal…
In Rapidman they experiment through their united musical voice, resulting in a straightforward motion that stands out in its plain and simple concept: five musicians who enjoy playing together.
