We kick off our WWII Liberation Festival on Friday evening with a garden concert by The Jacquelines. These three fantastic ladies delight visitors with infectious singing and catapult you back to the 1940s.

The half-Italian singer Iris Berardocco aimed to compose a full album that sounded like an Andrews Sisters record from the 1940s. She succeeded wonderfully in this with the album 'Gee Oh Gee', which was released more than ten years ago. Original songs such as 'Gee Oh Gee (Won't You Set My Fellas Free)' and 'Hypochondria' became indispensable on the radio in the year after their release. At the end of 2018, The Jacquelines presented their second album 'Leaving The Circus' in a packed De Roma in Antwerp. In addition to the characteristic swing, this album experimented with other styles such as blues, gospel, ragga and Latin. There was also room for a few covers, including their well-known arrangement of 'Don't Cry For Louie' (Vaya Con Dios) commissioned by 'grande dame' Dani Klein. Live, The Jacquelines continue to pay tribute to the Andrews Sisters with songs such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Rum & Coca Cola and Bei Mir Bist Du Schön. Iris Berardocco is joined on stage by class ladies Eva Tulkens and Sara Raes. Together the ladies guarantee the characteristic flawless three-part harmony that is so characteristic of the group. The rhythm section, undoubtedly the backbone of the band, consists of the experienced swing musicians Stijn Wauters (piano), Frederik Madou (double bass) and Jelle Van Giel (drums).

While you enjoy the fantastic music in our unique garden, your bellies will also be filled. On this evening we serve a Pulled Pork wrap. This delicious snack is also included in the ticket price!
