In the beginning he played with Rocksoff for ten years and Lie & Cheat for another two years. In November 2006, the line-up was completed by Hans-Jürgen Bardenhagen, guitar player and singer since 1980 with the Bluezz Bastardzz - "that lil' ol' ZZ Top cover band from Hamburg..." Bassist Markus Portworsnik moved to the Eifel region in south-west Germany in June 2007, and his replacement Markus Giza joined the Indigo Rocks line-up for their new schedule of gigs and recordings.
