Created in December 2015, Reverent Juke is born from the collaboration between the dancer Sep Vermeersch and the arranger Mathieu Najean.

With an explosive rhythm section built on the swinging drums of Tom Lambrecht, the bouncing bass and singing of Andrew Bolton and the wild stride of Renaud Crols, Reverent Juke sets the swing on fire with its three blowers, Martin Bolton on clarinet, Olivier Faber on trumpet and Mathieu Najean on saxophones, blowing there horns on the fiery flames till they drop.
