Sabbatical - documentary
The band was followed on camera for a year by documentary filmmaker Karin Hillebrand which resulted in the documentary "Sabbatical", a beautiful portrait of a band and all its besognes. Extremely recognizable for fellow musicians and therefore very entertaining. aired on Dutch television, but still available online on this website.
The band's music is rooted in its roots: jazz, blues, rock 'n roll and other original musical styles. An element from each style is taken and combined and infused with a hearty blues-rock sauce. As a result, The Liberators is not a traditional blues cover band, but is influenced by rich music history and gives the blues a new, solid style of its own. Visitors to concerts praise the energy the band exudes and their own spin on traditional music.
