Janek Gwizdala to replace Hadrien Feruad

Carlos Santana's bassist new to the lineup

The Hadrien Feraud & Philip Lassiter Band has unfortunately had to cancel their appearance at DDBF for personal reasons. We are however thrilled that Janek Gwizdala will be replacing their time slot at the festival. The bassist to stars such as Carlos Santana, John Mayer and Billy Cobham, Gwizdala has released no less than 12 albums under his own name and has established himself as one of the most important bass educators in the world. At the festival he will be performing with drummer Nico Vicarro (i.a. Mike Stern band) and on keys, Tom Cawley (i.a. Peter Gabriel).
