OF THE BLUES
Hans-Guenther Heck (Drums) and (Guitar) meet the first time for practice. Within a few rehearsals, the two decide to go for more.
Hans gets Klaus Waigand to handle the Bass.
Due to the blend of music the Band plays, they now call themselves Howlin’ King Snake. The Band performs Rock, Soul and Blues classics. In their first season, Howlin’ King Snake is already playing Festivals in summer and Clubs during the winter.
To become more mature, Howlin’ King Snake is recording nine Tracks from their set list in the studio. Producer is Frank Metzner at the Dreamland Studio, nearby Frankfurt/Gemany. The recording session will later be the first album “On the bridge to the Blues”
Howlin´King Snake entwickelt sich als Trio weiter und fokusiert sich mehr auf Blues Rock Stücke.
In the middle of the tour season, Howlin’ King Snake has to go on as a trio. The set list has to be rearranged, and has to be more Blues-Rock modified.
The Band is recording their second Studio album “The Blues around here”. Producer again is Frank Metzner at Dreamland Studios. The album contains eleven Originals and one cover song, the Blues classic “Mojo working”.
The Band plays concert shows as opening, and main act.
“On the bridge to the Blues” is released worldwide by Rainer Kern’s label RE-Musik & Media.
Accidently the crewmember Fahri Rexhepe records a concert set. Tour Manager Karl Wagner later points out, that the recording could have the potential for a live album. Muff Mc June takes care of the mastering and the album “Accidently live” becomes reality.
The work on the next studio album “From walls to trenches”, at Frank Metzner’s Dreamland Studio is completed. As guest musicians appear Rainer Kern (Guitar), Ralf Kern (Keys) and Frank Metzner (Piano).
Klaus and Eric are practicing with their new drummer Peter Mueller, to keep the Blues alive. The lineup now is: Peter Mueller (Drums), Klaus Waigand (Bass/Vocals) and Eric Kern (Guitar/Vocals).
