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.

The Kissterious shows include the legendary costumes, platform shoes and makeup. The band uses signature instrumentation and a fully LEDD lit drum kit. Together with smokers, flamers, a flashy KISS logo, blinkers, sirens, streamers and fireworks, they will provide a show that you will not soon forget.

MR.PINK, A TRIBUTE TO PINK FLOYD Peter Chattelin was the driving force and frontman of Pink Project the Band for over 27 years. Inspired by seeing the “real” Pink Floyd in 1980 Chattelin had only one dream and that was to recreate that magical almost elusive dedicated sound. For this he founded Pink Project. At the time, this collective started very small in 1993, resulting in full halls and theaters with 5x a sold-out Ahoy as the icing on the cake. Peter can call himself the initiator of the Pink Floyd Tribute band concept in our country. That this is quite popular nowadays needs no further explanation. Mister Pink (Peter’s nickname in the corridors) arose from the desire to once again put on groundbreaking shows that distinguish themselves from the now massive established order PF tribute bands. Mister Pink makes its entrance on stage in Dinxperlo with a spectacular multimedia show based on Pink Floyd’s best seller album The Dark Side Of The Moon. This iconic album exists 50 years this year and that will be celebrated with an integral live performance. Of course other Floyd classics will not be missing during this concert. Mister Pink and band are assisted by entertainment professionals during “Concert for Dreams”. Set your calendar for June 10 in the evening. I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

ZAC PERRY AND THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS – a hybrid rocking troubadour is said of him. He does not have a fixed style, but it fluctuates between ‘Roots’ compositions (Country, Folk and Americana). It is comparable to Neil Young and Steve Earl, but there are also pieces with a kind of Southern Blues Rock. In this we hear influences from, for example, Allman Brothers and Gov’t Mule. Feeling welcome in Europe, Zak and his band settled into their home studio in 2017 to record “Marrow,” the first release under the new name Zac Perry & the Beautiful Things. It also indicates the beautiful musical experiences that he and his band have had with the European public. And he will experience more beautiful things at Concert For Dreams.

THE VEINS – Young rebels and everything in between. Music that is rock solid and they know their classics. They play rock music and are inspired by bands from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Their own work is supplemented with catchy Classic Rock covers. The band has been around since 2018 and is well on its way to gaining fame in all corners of the world. Their goal, just play nice rock music and entertain the people and you don’t have to doubt that, they succeed.
