The Hi-Stakes is an Amsterdam-based quintet, led by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Sam Ghezzi. The band performs Rhythm & Blues inspired by Louis Jordan. They also deliver dreamy blues ballads in the style of Percy Mayfield and get hips moving to the boogaloo beats of Blue Note Records from the late 1950s. Their repertoire consists of original songs with lyrics full of irony and passion, authentically performed in various popular genres of that era. Whether it's a lyrical blues ballad or an explosive old-school Rhythm 'n Blues number, The Hi-Stakes bring it!
