Gianni TBAY and Joost Dijkema have known each other for a long time. They have shared many stages in many places all over Europe and they both have always had a penchant for those long-forgotten gems from the past, songs that come up from authentic, primordial feelings. It’s exactly this kind of feeling that pushed the two fellas into keeping this attitude alive and the reason why they joined forces to give birth to Lost Heydays project.
With nine record releases under the stage name of The Blues Against Youth, the Italian Gianni TBAY has developed a passionate music career throughout the last ten years, riding up and down many highways and byways, being praised by the international press, taking part in prestigious festivals and blowing people’s minds with his self-taught guitar style. The Dutch songwriter/ poli-instrumentalist Joost Dijkema took his first step on drums at the age of 5, and shortly after focusing on guitar and banjo. Inspired by musicians like Michael Chapman and Leo Kotke, Joost developed an astounding finger-picking style on 6 and 12-strings guitar, he served his time as singer, guitar/ banjo player and foot-stomper in the country-rock-outfit Reverse Cowgirls, and in the meanwhile, giving shape to his solo project that led him to his first record release ‘Sacred Revelations’ in 2016, an evoking piece of art that gave him the chance to share stages with the likes of Charlie Parr, Malcom Holcomb and Eric Taylor.
Other than their own compositions, the songs Lost Heydays perform are mostly tunes from forgotten country heroes or relatively unknown songs from the 20’s up to the late ’70s. Armed with a banjo, guitars and footdrums, like new clothes made out of some old and ragged textile, Lost Heydays provide you with a diverse evening with treasures from the past.
