Frontman Steven Troch got “contaminated” by Rhythm & Blues in his late teens and has since then played in different known and unknown bands. Over the years he has turned into a very fine harmonica player with an extra dose of originality, an accomplished vocalist and clever songwriter. In 2016 Steven surrounded himself with a very talented & experienced bunch of musicians and the Steven Troch Band was born.
"Little Steve" Van Der Nat is a killer guitarplayer who always nails it, Miss Liesbeth Sprangers keeps a steady pace on her powerhouse bass and no-nonsense drummer King Berik beats his jungle boilers.
They serve you a fine mixture of meaty BLUES and spicy ROOTS. In their music you will hear the mean menace of modern day life, the sweaty rhythms of the city, the blue notes of days gone by and lyrics that will paint a smile on your face. They are always walking a tightrope between High-Octane Swing, mellow Afterhours Blues and vintage feel-good R&B.
A solid four piece band that plays rough-edged contemporary Rhythm & Blues with soul-baring conviction. Without any doubt " Steven Troch Band " is one of the finest bands playing some of the best contemporary and vintage style blues you will hear in Europe today.
BLUES MATTERS (UK) : “A master of subtlety and an advocate of the “Less is More” approach”
BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE (USA) : “On his latest award-worthy album “Nice ‘N’ Greasy” Troch presents all prove that he and his band are “Top Chefs” of contemporary and traditional harmonica blues. Pairing meaty harmonica with saucy vocals, bold bass, and guitar that glides down like a tasty pair of “sliders,” this is just the ticket for anyone who wants a twelve-dish original smorgasbord with classic style.””
BACK TO THE ROOTS (B) : “Zonder twijfel maakt Steven deel uit van de bluestop in de Benelux en wat mij betreft is “Nice ‘N’ Greasy” de Belgische blues-cd van het jaar 2016.”
FESTIVALINFO.NL (NL) : “Het album “Nice ‘n’ Greasy” maakt net zo veel indruk als destijds King King van de Red Devils op mij maakte: vernieuwend is het geenszins maar daarom luistert het nog niet minder lekker weg”
