Trying to bring Southern Rock / Country "back" to Holland.

I'm playing in a band called "Unicornflakes" And whils't we're not yet into the whole process of recording a single or EP/Album we áre actually a growing live act.

We had our first gig about 3 weeks ago and that went pretty good in my opinion, and people even liked our music.

We play / write our own stuff which is mostly based on Southern Rock and Country, we also do a few covers, throw in Jerry Reid - Ames Moses or The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun (With a refreshing rock twist i might add..)

But our philosophy is to get more people to know the genre Southern Rock, it's actually not at all populair in Holland, and sure, people know what Rock is, and people know what Country is, but they've never heard about Southern Rock, and that's a shame we think.

Our line up:

Vito van Osch - Vocals/Lead Guitar (And the occasional rythm work)

Marco van der Laan - Rythm Guitar (And the occasional lead work)

Kathelijn Gerla - Bass Guitar.

Roy van Veenendaal - Drums.

Bradley van Dijk - Keys/backingvocals.

Sounds cool. No need for both guitarists to play same rhythm part IMHO. Keyboard player needs to lose the cheesy patches...B3, piano, and occasional rhodes would be more stylistically appropriate. All in all you guys sound pretty good for a new, young band...keep at it.

I keep that in mind when i'm back with some new keys that i'm just gonna use a organ/piano and a wurli/rhodes type of piano.

The keyboard you see me play is actually a beginners keyboard. So the sounds are kinda cheesy yes..

Thanks for the feedback!

We're having our next show July 8th at the same venue actually and after that we'll see where it'll take us!

Well they booked you again, so you did something right!! It sounded like the B3 patch on your board was ok.

Well that's true!! They liked us so much that they booked us into a "Best of" gig that 8th july (And that after just one gig!)

The B3 patch is kinda decent, it doesn't have any leslie control, nor does it feature drawbars, so it's kinda just that static sound.

I've got myself a Tyros, 3 days ago, used it at a rehearsal and it immedeatly sounded much better, nice wurlitzer sounds, a great wah clavinet, a nice B3 simulation with a leslie and it comes much more to life..
