YONKS

Now, that's what I call freedom! This 3-piece makes a whole lotta noise, and since there are no keyboards or 2nd guitars for back up while soloing, it's quiet a challenge for me to fill up the space there's left in a band with only drums, bass and guitar. After you're done, satisfaction takes over the place and it's all fun, all take-off, all wow! Frank and Dixie are just the right bad mutherfuckers it takes to come up with a 3-piece, in terms of excellence in musicianship and friendship.

In terms of music, this is a crossover thang: We grab songs from the charts, like the ones of Madonna, the Sugarbabes, Lady Gaga, and the such, and take them to Rock City, with edge, crunch, volume, uptempo, and of course a guitar solo. Since this is a party band, there is also a big deal of rock classics in between. Wanna experience Smoke on the water without the Hammond? Welcome!

19.5.2019

Just got back from a Sammy-gig at Downtown Blues Club in Hamburg, and I'm pumped with gratitude: Man, I just played with an amazing band, featuring guest contributions from Eckart Hofmann, who played with the likes of Eric Burdon, King Size Taylor, Tony Sheridan, Achim Reichel and Udo Lindenberg, and Michael V'delli (Rock'n Blues powerhouse from Perth/Australia), who inspired me forming the 3-piece band Yonks. Whataband, whatablast! Sharing stage with these musicians makes me... yeah, above: grateful. These occasions not only make my day, they make music such an invaluable share of my life.

Enough words. Still:

Welcome the refugees (the few that keep coming), be good to yourself, stay calm and ROCK! \m/

 

Peace, Richie
