Biography

Band Concept: Part of this Story started about along time ago. It was the day when I first saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show on T.V. Then I thought just like a lot of people did at that time how great it would be to put a rock and roll band together. Of course it wasn’t only the Beatles, it was Fats Domino, James Brown, Cannon Ball Adderley, Jimmy Smith, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones and so forth. Later on came The Who, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Chambers Brothers and The Quicksilver Messenger Service. My brother Dominic and I we both set out to first get some musical instruments together and start learning how to play them. We both listened to all types of music, everything, R&B, Classic, Jazz. Dominic and I we were both fortunately talented enough to start at an early age to compose music. As you may have it this story goes on over several years. The Concept of “The Strong Contenders” is, that a “Rock Band” plays a combination of Rock, Funk, Jazz and Classic. Similar to the way that the band “Weather Report” plays Jazz. That simply means, to play music that is well rehearsed and properly executed.


Band History: This story begins about a long time ago. I remember walking over the bridge that leads into the Weissenburger Strasse in Spandau on the outskirts of the city of Berlin.
