THE LENNEBROTHERS – the distinctive voice of ‘Ele’ (Michael Koch), the impressive piano playing of ‘Teddy’ (Stefan Koch) but also the majority of the self-written songs have formed the typical sound of this band in recent decades. Many of their songs have been covered by countless Rock ‘n’ Roll and Country bands from Europe and the dance steps of ‘My New Life’ and ‘High Class Lady’ are danced to by line dancers worldwide. They not only convince musically, but also know how to give a spectacular show on stage that one has to see before you believe it is possible. They are versatile and occupy a special place in the European Rock ‘n Roll scene. They make you move and produce a special sound that they call ‘Western Rockabilly’. Not to be confused with Country, but they use instruments that are not normally used in a Rockabilly band such as the banjo, dobre and mandolin. It is precisely because of this that the Lennebrothers have a Rockabilly sound that you would not normally expect. In addition to their own songs, you can also expect classics from Jerry Lee Lewis, Johny Cash, Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Matchbox and Crazy Cavan ‘n’ the Rhythm, Rockers, among others.
