his microphones are ridiculously big and unaffordable though. sometimes people help out with more expensive gear. these people who have supported him so far are: -christian schroeder/graf herzogin(doublebass, melodica) -princess lea (glockenspiel, accordion, vocals) -stephan leeb (trombone, trumpet) currently he is being assisted by the unbelievably talented gernot scheithauer, who is supporting him live and in the studio by playing drums/percussion, glockenspiel, vibraphone, children's accordion and casio keyboards. amazing guy! 2) Liger: an indie-rockband from Rotterdam - The Netherlands At the end of the summer 2005 Wouter and Dennis met for the first time at a random birthday party and started talking about music. Soon they found out their taste of music was very similar and both played an instrument.
A few months and beers later Liger was born, with Wouter as guitarist/songwriter and Dennis on bass. Liger started out as a tree-piece with the first of many drummers, but after a winter season of practising a replacement was found on drums in René and a second guitarist, Evert, was added to the line-up. Both musicians Wouter knew from previous local bands and they already played together for a half year. With this line-up Liger started working on defining their style, sound and 6 new songs later René got an offer to work in London, which eventually left the band searching for a new drummer, again. Two new drummers had come and gone in the autumn season, when Frank was found. His powerful and innovative style of drumming was a definitive match with Liger’s music.
All songs were practised and restructured again and a few were thrown away. In July 2007 the band decided they had enough songs to perform and was eager to hit the stage. The result was the first show at a Beach Club near Hoek van Holland. The response was great and a spectator liked it so much, he arranged a show for the band in Winston Kingdom, Amsterdam immediately. After this more shows followed in places such as Exit, NL3, Paradiso, Paard. In October and November 2007 Liger has recorded a 4 song EP at Next To Jaap Studio (Green Hornet, Blues Brother Castro, Venus Flytrap, Soda P) source: www.myspace.com/ligersounds Read more on Last.fm.
