The Electrophonics are back!

And how!!

Driving force Stephan Hermsen traded his bluesharp for a guitar. "You play Blues with your heart" is commonly said, and this goes also for Stephan and his companions ....

The Phonics Horns are complemented by Evert Hoedt on baritone sax, along with André de Laat on tenor sax more than a swinging horns section. The rhythm section is firmer than ever before, with Ronald Roodbol on bass, Ivo Sieben on piano and Hammond and Peter Stienen behind the Ludwig Drums.

Swing, swing and swing again, with perhaps a side road now and then, but still with the jumpin ', swingin' 'n' bumpin drive of the old days.

In early June the men will start recording their 3rd studio album, available Autumn of 2012.

A little a lot of that shuffling’ ‘n’ jumpin’, swingin’ ‘n’ bumpin’ the description of the last studio album Little A Lot! The Electrophonics will go even further with their upcoming CD!

The swingtrain is rollin’ again!

Take your chance to catch it!
