Bio (band not responsible for the "approximative
English": my translation)
PasseVITE is a popband from Schoten, not unknown in the region of Antwerp.
They combine funk, pop and rock into a strong live-act.
A passevite is a utensil for use in the kitchen, but the french meaning of
"come by quickly", "come and have a look, fast", suits the
group better. The band brings a creative programme with songs in Dutch, a good
amount of humour and a catchy groove that makes it really hard to keep still to.
The band was founded by Wouter Kersbergen and Koen Jacobs in
January 1999 This duo is the driving force behind the five-piece band. Wouter
Kersbergen is responsible for the often funny, often sensitive lyrics and vocal
melodies, while his friend has the biggest influence on the musical level. These
two have a select backline backing them up: Dave Wyns is the guitarplayer
and also plays funk in "Double 'U'balls" and a few other cover bands.
Drummer, Pieter Vandergooten, is the youngest member of the band and a
student at the music Academy. Patrick Houthooft from Merksem plays the
bass and has played with Big Trouble, Les Miserables and the Ketnet-band. With
these musicians, PasseVITE hase quickly evolved into a dutch-singing popband with
its own identy. If it's allowed to be a little different, as they say themselves.
The repertoire of the band consists mostly of self-written material, although
the "big names" from the dutch-language music aren't neglected. Doe
Maar & Raymond are among the regulars
in their stage act.
