Four Belgian artists who share their passion for music... and their red hair: this is Floris and the Flames! With their music, Floris and the Flames cross the borders between classical, pop rock and folk. The special combination of violin, piano, bass guitar, drums and electronics creates a unique sound. Their energetic performances delight their audience in concert halls as well as on large open-air stages.
Floris Willem (violin), Gert Peeten (electric piano, guitar, electronics), Dries Peeten (bass guitar) and Simon Schrooten (drums, percussion) have completed a classical education and like to get off the beaten track. Helped by Belgian composer/arranger Laurent Beeckmans, they perform their own compositions and original adaptations of classical masterpieces (Bach, Vivaldi, Paganini, Glass...). Expect ardent music with a versatile character!
The group has been invited to perform at the Palais des Beaux-Arts (BOZAR) in Brussels, at the MuTh concert hall of the Vienna Boys' Choir and at the Spittelberg Theatre in Vienna, to the TV show De Ideale Wereld (Canvas) and to the World Exhibition "EXPO 2020" in Dubai.
