Frontman Steven Troch got “contaminated” by Rhythm & Blues in his late teens. Over the years he has turned into a very fine harmonica player with an extra dose of originality, an accomplished vocalist and clever songwriter.
In 2016 Steven surrounded himself with a very talented & experienced bunch of musicians and the Steven Troch Band was born. Matt T Mahony is carrying the torch high, keeping one eye on tradition while pushing forward into newer areas. Miss Liesbeth Sprangers keeps a steady pace on her powerhouse bass and drummer Dennis de Gier loves to groove and brews up a wide variety of rock-solid rhythms like no other.
In their music you will hear the mean menace of modern day life, the sweaty rhythms of the city, the blue notes of days gone by and lyrics that will paint a smile on your face. They are always walking a tightrope between High-Octane Swing, mellow Afterhours Blues and vintage feel-good R&B. Steven Troch Band is a solid four piece band that plays rough-edged contemporary Rhythm & Blues with soul-baring conviction.
Without any doubt " Steven Troch Band " is one of the finest bands playing some of the best contemporary and vintage style blues you will hear in Europe today.Bandleader and HOHNER endorser Steven Troch sings like he means it and blows a powerful but relaxed swinging harmonica. Steven writes great original and intelligent songs with witty lyrics. Matt T Mahony his guitarplaying starts at the blues but he might slip in some silky smooth jazz or daring electrifying rock. Matt shifts effortlessly between rhythm and lead parts doing his blues thing with authority. Liesbeth Sprangers is just one of the best bassists you will ever hear. When Lizz and her four string machine lay down a "Big Bottom" bass it grinds and grooves like a steam rolling locomotive. Dennis de Gier loves to groove and brews up a wide variety of rock-solid rhythms like no other. A very exciting drummer with a distinctive feel who's musicality and enthusiasm knows no limits.
