The band - Kent Trent - Jake Watt - Olivier Fauque
Kent from England: Singer and keyboard player in Rip-it Encore (piano, Fender Rhodes, Hammond organ and bass guitar). After spending 12 years playing in piano-bars all over the world, to name but a few, the famous Red Head piano-bar in Chicago, The Menzies in Sydney and Trianon Piano Bar in Brazil, Kent decided to move to France and join musical forces with Jake Watt!
|Jake from Scotland: Singer and guitarist (electric, acoustic, ukulele and banjo) in Rip-it Encore. With his sharp tones, harmonies and looks, Jake takes his life-long singer songwriter & musical experience to another level by pushing the band to shake up or shake out. Click here to listen to some of his own work. Jake's fantastic solos are often compared to the likes of Eric Clapton.|
|Olivier from France: Drummer in Rip-it Encore, has been working with percussion for as long as he can remember, and has played in some of the best known bands in France, before joining "the best" band in France (well... Sort of). With his strict sense of rhythm, he knows how to keep the band moving in perfect tempo.|
Duo to trio - From cocktail / champagne reception / vin d'honneur, through to dinner, dance and disco.
To sum it up... You can hire us as a duo or trio for your party or event, wedding, aperitif / champagne reception / cocktail through to dinner and dance. The duo is as the trio, but without a real drummer. These different options are priced individually, but we can tweak or mix 'n' match to find a solution that suits you and your budget. Contact us for details, availability and prices.
We are based in the south of France and can travel to any part of the country to perform at your event. We're accustomed to travelling to any part of Europe and worldwide. We frequently travel to Spain, Italy and Switzerland for weddings and corporate events.
