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/

We have been looking for a frontman/singer for the last few months while reworking some of our songs. There have been several people who were interested in that role, yet it didn’t really match – until we met Elena:

Rocker, adventurist, songwriter, composer, and a smiley person, Elena is installed in Luxembourg since very recently. Originate of Macedonia, Elena left her native country in 2001, to evolve in new horizons (i.e. more democratic and liberal), thus, from Switzerland (Lausanne), through France (Besançon, and then Paris), she landed in Luxembourg nowadays. She got a Journalist university diploma in Macedonia and studied European Business Law in France, in IT / IP field. Today, Elena is working as a legal counsel for a private Luxembourgish company specialized in the media audiovisual sector.

Ever since she’s a child, Elena sings, writes and composes songs, in parallel of her main activity. She’s 35, and has several achievements behind her, such as: songs released in Macedonia (among which the most successful “Dlaboka Bolka”), albums released independently in France (among which “Janis”), performing the main character in a fantastic rock comedy called “Le Cadeau”, etc.

Elena’s creativity is still and always at Rendezvous. We are very happy to welcome her to our world and work with her on our songs and compose some new ones.

Be prepared for the “new” Strysles :-)
