WOFO is based around Mattias Laga, Michel Mast and Xavier Verhelst. The Trio has brought out three acclaimed albums over five years, in which their distinctive sound increasingly found its form.
Last year WOFO toured extensively playing the repertoire of Raymond Scott, whose music was used in countless Warner Brothers cartoons. Their music is sparkling and infectious. Bassist/composer Xavier Verhelst arranged and added to the pieces, so that they seem made for the group. WOFO was inspired by Raymond Scott’s Quintette to become a Sextette, all the better to interpret the driving music.
This year WOFO expands even further with the new project of WOFO & Strings. The strings however will add no syrupy sweetness, but rather strengthen the WOFO sound with both warm and edgy tones. Verhelst has written a new repertoire to match the WOFO & crew, amply laced with the typical humour of the group.
