TRAVELLIN' BLUE KINGS

Een nieuwe Belgo-Nederlandse band gevormd uit ex-leden van Howlin Bill, Fried Bourbon, Liberators en Rhythm Bombs en Electrophonics. Om u even de zaken wat duidelijker te maken hebben we het hier over Stephan Hermsen (vocals, harp, gitaar), Jimmy Hontelé (gitaar), Winne Penninckx (bass) en Marc Gijbels(drums).
De naam van de band is niet zomaar willekeurig gekozen, want deze vier heren schuimden het Europees continent al af en zijn dus zeer bereisde bluesambassadeurs van ons kleine Belgenlandje. Het repertoire is zeer uitgebreid en gevarieerd, gaande van de West Coast over Memphis naar Chicago en zelfs de Britse bluesscene wordt niet vergeten, heel benieuwd dus naar de prestaties van deze ouwe rotten.

TRAVELLIN' BLUE KINGS

 

 

Add two portions of Electrophonics and two portions of Howlin 'Bill along with one pinch Rhythm Bombs, Liberators, Fried Bourbon, Regulators and Eastville Sinner, shake well, take off the cream and you get 4 gallons of explosive gasoline aka TRAVELLIN’ 'BLUE KINGS.
Travellin’ is not in the name by chance, these four gentlemen worked with their respective bands all over Europe. You could find them on festival stages in Norway, Sweden, Poland, Germany, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Italy. And of course, being the Boys from Benelux, in every corner of Belgium and the Netherlands.
This blues mobile influences range from Texas to the West Coast, across Memphis heading for Chicago and then to the UK’s British Blues Boom. The four gentlemen find their inspiration in many different kinds of music and bring a fresh and yet familiar repertoire, supplemented with a few precisely chosen covers. That's what you can expect from this new band, brought with tons of energy and enthusiasm. Check them out!
