He played with the bands of Peter Packay (The Red Robins), Chas Remue, Gus Deloof, Albert Sykes, Jean Omer, Robert De Kers, Freddy Johnson and his own bands, too, like the Atlanta band (with a.o. Gus Deloof and John Ouwerx).

In the second part of his career, he focused on his activities as a composer/arranger, mainly in the Netherlands.
