The Dutch funk 'n' roll band The Jig played for a year and a half ago for over  twenty thousand mad Brazilians at the Rio Das Ostras Jazz & Blues Festival. To celebrate this sweaty concert in combination with the band’s 10 year anniversary, not to mention the spirit of a live recording, the band releases Live In Rio on CD and on glorious blue vinyl.
On its fourth (!) Tour in Brazil they didn’t just play an exclusive show in Rio
de Janeiro but also at the renowned festival in the coastal city of Rio das Ostras.
Here they closed the Saturday evening on the main stage for a twenty thousand people
audience. The warm-blooded atmosphere of the performance evaporates on Live In Rio.
It's the fourth album by The Jig after their studio albums Brooklyn Blowout, Aargh! and Proximo Disco. Some new songs can also be heard on this live record.
The Jig has had to cancel or postpone all live shows this current  period, including
tours to Germany, France and Spain.
While not be able to attend a concert, this record brings The Jig to your living room so after all you can still enjoy the live experience.

The Jig creates a new instrumental funksound with elements of afrobeat, soul, rhythm ‘n’ blues and a fresh rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Love for uncut funk from heroes like The Meters and Bootsy Collins brought these seven musicians from diverse backgrounds together. Their compositions originate during underground sessions in Amsterdam where the three horns and rhythm section including Hammond organ push each other into catching melodies and danceable grooves.
. The bandmembers state: The Jig is not ‘funky’, The Jig is FUNK!
