Brock & The Brockettes sing original and traditional bluegrass, hillbilly and old-time music.
Beautiful close-harmony, around one mike to guarantee the authentic sound you'll also find on their first album 'Gather around the mic'.
Original songs and tributes to the greats like the Carter Family, Stanley Brothers and Bill Monroe.
Herman grew up surrounded by traditional bluegrass and country music. His dad played banjo in an all American bluegrassband when he was stationed at a NATO air force base in Germany.
Jr. started singing close harmony with his family as a young boy. After playing in his dad's F.F.F.F. band (with his brother) for years, Jr. started his own rootsband The Eurocasters with bassplayer Lizz Sprangers, where again harmony singing played a major role.
Fellow singer-songwriter Geertje joined Herman and Lizz, singing third parts and playing mandolin and autoharp and the Brockettes were born.
The first Brockettes gig was support act for the Hackensaw Boys in Porgy & Bess, Terneuzen NL. (video)
Brock, with mandolineplayer Geertje and bassplayer Lizz, present a varied and entertaining show with passion, originality, energy and a little humor.
