Rock um Knuedler 2018 Look Back

Rock um Knuedler last weekend was a blast. We had a lot of fun on the big main stage and were very satisfied with the tech support and sound guys.

This year again, no internationally known name, but more room for the local bands. More than 20 acts rocked this great festival whether on the main stage at the town hall or on the two side stages in the alleys and squares of the old town: “Rock um Knuedler” attracted thousands of music fans.

Here is a little video look back:

Those of you who follow us on our social media channels may have got the news already and we are really looking forward to rock the big lion stage on this year’s well-known Rock um Knuedler. It is one of Luxembourg’s most important music festivals and we have the honour to open the big lion stage at 5 p.m. on 7th July. We will play a nice short set with our best-of songs (and maybe one new never-played-before-song ;) ).

EDIT: We won the first round and will be back on 28th July 2018, same time same place :-)

SPH Bandcontest Trier

Usually we are not so into bandcontests but for 2018 we decided it would be nice to make the experience and to play at a good organized bandcontest.

24th March 2018 we are therefore going to rock “Exhaus Trier” with a few other bands like “Drop to another World“, death core style, “Tower“, “Freidenkeralarm” a Punk band, “E-Stones” and “Monti u Esco”. We are looking forward to that event and perform a short set of around 25 minutes with our best-of songs.

Tickets are available at the official SPH page or you can contact us directly, we have a lot of tickets for just 7 €.

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/

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*
