It was the early 70’s when 4 young Dutch guys where inspired by bands
as Black Sabbath, Montrose and Led Zeppelin and they decided to form a rock and roll band.
The band was called ‘Frankenstein’. From the start it had a ‘bad reputation’
for its spectacular, loud concerts all over
Not to mention the big truck loaded with a huge amount
of sound- and light equipment and a dedicated road crew.
It was clear that Frankenstein was serious business.
The absolute climax of their fame was a concert together with Motorhead in 1980,
broadcasted live on Dutch television!
About 20 years later, Frankenstein’s founder, spin doctor and guitarist Berthus Westerhuis,
who stayed in the music business as producer and engineer in his own recording studio,
was asked to play with some friends at a local festival, ‘just for fun’.
It was a great success and soon there were plans for a Frankenstein reunion,
which found place in 2010 for an outrageous crowd of more than 1500 people!
Westerhuis was ‘back on the street’, and formed a old school Hard rock band
with vintage musicians:
On bass guitar Berthus’ ‘partner in crime’ and Frankenstein’s co-founder Roelof Kloeze,
always easy going with an original hard rock feel.
On drums Con Vinke, who’s technique and groovy play keeps the band ‘in time’.
Singer/front man is John Scholing,
with his absolute unique style he keeps the audience (and the band!) busy.
Both Con and John were band members from the legendary Dutch hardrock band ‘Stranger’
Which played for over 10 years, supported bands like Venom and Motorhead and made a successful album.
plays old school hard rock and covers from Black Sabbath, Montrose etc.
The band plays for fun (but seriously!).
live concert is an entertaining show,
with a big taste of humor, professional sound and lights
and lots of Marshalls!!
