Eric Gales and Friends At North Sea!

Eric Gales & Friends Live at the 2022 North Sea Jazz Festival

Eric Gales, if he’s having a jam session, wherever he’s performing, he’s always going bring a few friends along to shake things up! And this he has with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Kingfish, Cory Henry and many more added to the mix! First off, Eric Gales is a monster on the guitar and makes every note sound so easy!

So, while there is no reason to bring people up on stage, he does it because he’s someone that loves what he does but also enjoys playing with his friends as well. What a cool gift he gave to his audience with all these amazing musicians just hanging out and having a blast! All I can say in this video is he’s got the whole audience boogying to the blues. Plus, they each take a turn at showing off their over the top musical skills on stage!

North Sea Jazz Festival

Since 1976, the North Sea Jazz Festival has been entertaining The Netherlands with jazz legends and Dutch artists. 75,000 attendees gather in Rotterdam to more than 1,000 musicians and 150 performances over 15 states.
