THE DANDIES- Oh yeah!
My Initial thoughts when I first saw these boys on stage were course! Good looking lads, attitude, plenty of female fans. Once again thought COURSE! This is rock and roll baby.
The Dandies were formed deep in the heart of Lucerne, Switzerland, by talented brothers Adrian Weber (Vocals / Guitar) & Eric Weber (Lead Guitar) whose roots are in Baltimore, USA and Swiss friend Fabian Voirol (Drums). In 2010, the band was completed by Dimitri Schubiger (bass).
Gathering around a shared love of classic American rock n roll bands like the Kings of Leon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Velvet Underground and The Strokes. They named themselves The Dandies; their love of music thrust them onto the stage with a burning ambition to create their own piece of history.
The Dandies take the best elements of indie, grunge and punk and combine them to pump out energetic garage rock anthems packed with big hooks and infectious choruses. The band have been recording at Leeders Farm Studio in the UK with Grammy-nominated producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (JET, Meat Puppets, Lost Bayou Ramblers). The Dandies had the privilege of playing festivals such as SXSW & Reeperbahn and supporting bands such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Band Of Skulls, Sixteen Deluxe & Children Collide. The Dandies are poised to bring the swagger back to rock n roll.
Well I´ll tell you something, The Dandies debut does a wonderful thing – it reminds you that guitar music still works. So be rude and stare at these bad boys!
