Purmerend, The Netherlands (1982 – 2003)

Ten Sharp is a Dutch band best known for its early 1990s hit song “You”, a hit in some European countries in 1991 and in others (such as the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 10) in 1992. The two band members are Marcel Kapteijn (vocals) and Niels Hermes (keyboards).

Streets was a local band formed in the beginning 1982, when the two rival bands Prizoner and Pin-Up came together in the same room. Influenced by Thin Lizzy, they started writing symphonic rocksongs and played mainly in Purmerend, The Netherlands and around. The first gig was at the Hutspop festival on March 3, 1982. The band at this stage was Marcel Kapteijn on vocals and guitar, Niels Hermes on keyboards, Martin Boers on leadguitar, Ton Groen on bass and Joop van de Berg played the drums. In the summer of ‘82, Joop van de Berg was replaced by Wil Bouwes from Neon Graffiti. This would be the line-up until the break-up in 1987.

Niels Hermes also worked with Attie Bauw on the first single by Esther Amadea.

Their latest release was recorded in 2003

    Твою мать, лет десять искал эту песню, пока не услышал в рекламе по радио что они в Одессу приезжают.
