daniel Chantant & Friends

It is while traveling with theater groups, performing his solos, singing in music venues, cafes-theater and festivals, that Daniel Rovai created the following line-up. Those virtuoso musicians bring to Daniel a solid musical support and personalized arrangements made on measure. Together they revisited the rich repertoire of French pop, Latin jazz, folk and classic. They also played hits from Italy, Spain and England and formed the perfect band for parties and concerts.

Stan Haywood (left): Keyboards, clarinet, vocals. Born in the UK. Member of the New Vaudeville Band known for their hit 'Winchester Cathedral' in the late sixties. Moved to Holland in 1973 with the Friends Roadshow and became Jango Edwards backup pianist. He has since composed his own music and played with various theater groups and bands such as Pigeon Drop or Loose Ends. He joined up with Daniel in 1997.

Lorand Sarna (right): guitar, clarinet, vocals. Born in New York. Then lived in San Francisco, Montreal, Tokyo, Paris, and Amsterdam which explains his great musical diversity. Co-founder of the Gweek City Juke Box, Lorand joined the group in 1998 and brings with him his unique guitar style.

James Sernesky: Trumpet, drums, percussions, vocals. In 1977 he arrived from Canada to Europe with The Great Salt Lake Mime Troup. Original member of Amsterdam Jazz Band Available Jelly, he also worked with Jango Edwards for many years, and recorded with Mathilda Santing. He joined Daniel in 1997.
