ABOUT THE BAND
Bandleader and HOHNER endorser Steven Troch sings like he means it and blows a powerful but relaxed swinging harmonica. Steven writes great original and intelligent songs with witty lyrics.
Matt T Mahony
Matt T Mahony his guitarplaying starts at the blues but he might slip in some silky smooth jazz or daring electrifying rock. Matt shifts effortlessly between rhythm and lead parts doing his blues thing with authority.
Liesbeth Sprangers is just one of the best bassists you will ever hear. When Lizz and her four string machine lay down a "Big Bottom" bass it grinds and grooves like a steam rolling locomotive.
Bernd Coene loves to groove and brews up a wide variety of rock-solid rhythms like no other. A very exciting drummer with a distinctive feel who's musicality and enthusiasm knows no limits.

Le gusse, Steven Troch s’avère un instrumentiste de premier ordre (diatonique ou chromatique), il est surtout un auteur-compositeur désopilant, ayant manifestement tout compris de l’esprit (comme de la lettre) de cette musique. PARIS MOVE (FR)
Troch zijn harmonicaspel staat garant voor kwaliteit maar de jaren ervaring zijn duidelijk hoorbaar. Zijn goed geoliede band bewandelt een breed palet aan traditionele paden en het blijft altijd boeien. BACK TO THE ROOTS (B)
