René started to play the trombone when he was 13 years old and at that age he knew already that jazz was one off his favorite music styles. He started as a trombone and tuba player in a local music corps. After that he played several years in a big-band. In that period he learned more about jazz and especially to play the music. Nowadays the jazz music has become an important part off his life. The last ten years René played in several local jazz bands. There he met Franck and Hugo. From the start there was “a musical click”, and so he was asked to join the Hurricane Brassband in 2008. René also plays in the Gumbo jazzband and the Revival Jazzband.
