Brussels Rhythm and Blues Club

The Brussels Rhythm and Blues Club exists for people that enjoy live music with soul. Started by three friends back in 2002 on a non-profit making basis, it aims to recreate the ambience of a Chicago blues club with non-stop live bands.

Usually one Saturday every month we put on a double bill of rhythm and blues bands.

Our guest bands reflect the broad R’n’B church that runs from soul and funk (The Boogaloo Investigators, Bai Kamara, Tony O’Malley, Gene Drayton Unit), through traditional blues (De Ferre Trio, The Toddlers, Bob Christopher, John Frick, The Kingsnakes) to rock and roll (Roberto, Late Special), blues rock (Basement Apes, The Inflexibles) and garage rock (The Wildebeests, Lord Rochester, The Masonics), and from the latest generation of artists (Matt Schofield, Paul Garner) to pioneers of the 60s British rhythm and blues scene (The Pretty Things).

The BRBC was originally hosted by the Athanor in the centre of Brussels but moved to the beautiful turn of the century café ‘Le Sounds' in the heart of Ixelles from March 2003, where you can enjoy a wide range of beers and wines and excellent Italian food.
