As a guitar player he's played with different bands and projects. Although Jeroen likes and plays different genres of music, his passion for improvisation is a key element in most of his projects, some of which are listed below.
He leads his own trio with Gert-Jan Dreessen on drums and Nic Thys on bass. Occasionally this trio transforms into a quartet with the great Steven Delannoye on saxophone. At the moment he's also playing in an Antwerp based fusion band, called Unfinished Business and bass player Martijn Vanbuel's project 'Forbid Oaks'.
Some other highlights:
Jeroen has played with (and written some arrangements for) the Antwerp Jazz Orchestra: they performed a series of concerts featuring Chris Potter on saxophone in 2022, and Joshua Redman in 2018.
With FONS. (with Gert-Jan Dreessen and Lennert Baerts) he played a concert at Jazz Middelheim featuring saxophone player Logan Richardson.
He played the finals of the Keep An Eye jazz awards at Bimhuis (Amsterdam) in 2014 with 'Five Moods'.
In 2012 he won the Belfius Classics competition with Raft, a band led by Jan Nihoul.
As a teacher Jeroen teaches at the Pentagoon Academy Tongeren, KANL and academie Grimbergen.
Jeroen Reggers picked up his first guitar at the age of 8 and he immediately found a huge passion in playing and listening to music.
In 2012, at the age of 18, he decided to turn this passion into a profession and started his studies at the conservatory of Leuven. After three years in Leuven, he studied at the conservatory of Amsterdam for one year before graduating at the conservatory of Antwerp. During his studies his guitar teachers were Peter Hertmans, Jesse van Ruller, Martijn van Iterson and Frederik Leroux.
