Licks & Brains plays contemporary big band jazz with a healthy dose of soul, funk and dance, and with a full brass line-up. The band has already collaborated with named performers such as Benjamin Herman, Joseph Bowie (Defunkt) and remixers Kraak & Smaak.

‘Vloeimans plays crisp and self-assured, embodying the articulate melodicism of Clifford Brown plus many shades of Miles, without being imitative’ (JazzTimes).
