This results in three concerts at Belgium’s most famous concerthall, Ancienne Belgique in Brussels. Dez Mona becomes the first band ever to do this without having published any album. Acclaimed by critics and fans, Dez Mona records its first album Pursued Sinners in a church. It is a live duo album with the occasional collaboration of trumpetplayer Sam Vloemans and accordionplayer Roel Van Camp.
Nicolas and Gregory continue performing and writing new material where they choose for larger arrangments and more percussive power. When recording the new album Moments of Dejection or Despondency Dez Mona transforms itself from a duo into a quintet. From the jazz barricades Steven Cassiers and Bram Weijters join the band on drums and piano. First partner in crime Roel Van Camp simply can’t be missed and fulfills the new Dez Mona.
As a phoenix the quintet will once again set a new personal standard in live performing. Nevertheless Gregory and Nicolas keep on doing smaller, but not less intensive duo performances. Their belief in the live moment where dejection and despondency are turned into hope will never vanish. Read more on Last.fm.
