Information

'Funny Funny', 'Poppa Joe’, ‘Wig Wam Bam’, ‘Blockbuster!’ and ‘Little Willy’, are just a few hits that made The Sweet world famous. The British glam rock band sold over 55 million albums and had a whopping 34 no. 1 hits. For many musicians, including Gene Simmons (KISS), Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) and Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), The Sweet set the example. To the present day, guitarist Andy Scott is still touring the world with his band.

The success of The Sweet started in 1970 when Brian Connolly and Mick Tucker founded the band ‘Sweetshop’. The name was soon shortened to ‘The Sweet’. Shortly thereafter, Steve Priest was asked to join as a bassist. After several changes in the lineup, when the band was about to split up, guitarist Andy Scott was recruited in 1970. This completed the ‘classic’ line-up. The first single that these musicians made together was ‘Funny Funny’, the rest is history. Besides Andy Scott the band consists of drummer Bruce Bisland (ex-Weapon, Wildfire, Statetrooper), vocalist/bassist Pete Lincoln (Cliff Richard, Shaking Stevens and Sailor) and guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Tony O’Hora.

Mooie Meneren

Mooie Meneren is ooit begonnen als kwartet. De Westlander Carlo Cancedda maakte toen ook nog deel uit van de band. Sinds enige tijd knallen deze Meneren als trio op het podium. Zanger, gitarist, producer en entertainer Serge Naberman is veelzijdig. Zo is hij o.a. bekend als medeoprichter van de hardrockband Rebelstar maar ook als begeleider van cabaretier Najib Amhali.

Samen met basgitarist Fred van Leeuwen en drummer Frits Dennert, die beide ook voor de backing vocals zorgen, klinkt deze Haagse band superstrak. Op het repertoire staan songs van onder meer ZZ Top, The Rolling Stones, Golden Earring, Bon Jovi, U2, Billy Idol, The Foo Fighters, Robbie Williams, Kaiser Chiefs en nog veel meer
