Bye Ben, Welcome Steve!

Bye Ben

Those who came to our concert last Saturday at “Little Woodstock Café” already got the news: We have to announce a personnel change. Ben, our drummer, has decided to leave the band and last Saturday was his last concert with Strysles. And we did have a lot of fun. Yeah! Thank you Ben for everything. Keep rocking man! :-) \m/

Strysles at Little Woodstock Café November 2017

Welcome Steve

So let’s introduce to you our new man on the drums: Mr. Steve Krippler. I’m sure he is no stranger to most of you out there. Steve has been playing drums since he was 9 years old and has been studying drums at the Conservatory of Music in Luxembourg City. In 2010 he won the contest “De beschten Drummer vu Lëtzebuerg”. (Still the best as this contest has never been repeated 😉 )

His previous projects included: Coverband Diesel on Tour, Coverband Toxic, Big Band Spectrum and Folk-Rock Band Dream Catcher.

Currently Steve is also busy playing drums in his wife’s projects, Emilie Duval, her project “Tribute to Céline Dion” and “Tribute to the Divas”, as well as an independant drummer.

And now welcome to the universe of Strysles. Steve’s first complete gig with us will be already this Friday at Musicfest, Victor Hugo Hall, a special Unplugged Session. Next year will be a busy Strysles year. *Exciting*

Strysles Studio Session February 2017 – #BreakTheSilence

Last weekend, we’ve hit the studio again to record a new song for you. To be released very soon …. :-) What we can already reveal is, that the song will be called “Break the Silence”. Stay tuned for more. Here are some impressions from last Saturday:

Strysles happy to welcome Marc Lanners on guitar

Marc Lanners on guitarAfter Dan left the band, we had to find a replacement to hold the second six string in the band. We were looking for someone who would be as devoted to our music as we are and we had quite some candidates showing up at our castings. Finally we decided to ask Marc to join the “Strysles” adventure.

He has been around in the Luxembourgish music scene for a while now; as co-founding member of the 80s Pop-Rock band “Footsteps” he recorded two EPs including the hit single “Luxembourg I’m Coming Back“. Another well-known ensemble he played with was the Jazz Big Band “Opus 78” that permitted him to enlarge his musical skills beyond Rock’n’Roll. After a period of silence he appeared again some years ago as a member of the local cover band “Wazabi and Me” that disbanded unfortunately after 3 years.

Now he is ready to jump onto the “Strysles” train and rock the Grand Duchy again. We are looking forward to the next concert season in 2017, first gigs are already in the making.

Rock on \m/
