Guitarist Hans Van Oost is probably one of the most sought after Belgian jazz guitar players, who has taken part in projects and ensembles such as the Brussels Jazz Orchestra, Bart Defoort Quartet, and is often seen alongside Rony Verbiest and Ben Sluijs.

He was already 19 when he took up the guitar and enrolled at the Brussels Royal Conservatoire (under Paolo Radoni), as well as the Antwerp Jazzstudio. He also did internships with the likes of Pat Metheny and Serge Lazerevitch. 

He has also been teaching at the Gent Conservatoire since 2005.
