Laundromat (NL)

Laundromat, the Dutch Rory Gallagher tribute band, have been on the road for the past twelve years keeping the music and memory of the great Irish bluesman alive. The present line-up comprises founder members Danny Vlaspoel (guitar) and Joeke Wouda (bass) along with drummer Maarten Witsel (ex-Wolfpin) and vocalist Fred Koridon and makes for a superb combination of musicianship and faithful interpretation of Rory’s material.

Frequent appearances at the Ballyshannon International Tribute Festival, the British Rory Gallagher Tribute and the Annual Dutch tribute at Wijk aan Zee have been among the many high points for the band over the years. In addition, they have had the pleasure of performing with ex-Rory Gallagher band members, with Ted McKenna joining them on drums in 2007 and Mark Feltham on blues harp in 2012. Extensive tours of Ireland and their native Holland have built a loyal following who particularly appreciate Laundromat’s extensive play list and sensitive feel for the very best of Rory’s music. Laundromat set out to cover the full range of Rory’s extensive repertoire from hard driving blues, to explosive rockers right through to emotive ballads and acoustic numbers. As a treat for true connoisseurs of Rory’s music they also dip into areas of his work seldom covered live by other tribute bands such as the storming "Slumming Angel" of his last album Fresh Evidence, or the gentle and heart-breaking "Easy Come, Easy Go" from Jinx.

This is a Rory Gallagher Tribute band with a real difference – don’t miss them!




Sinnerboy (UK)

Sinnerboy - from Manchester - have a huge reputation for faithfully recapturing the sound and excitement of a live "Rory Gig". They have played a major role in promoting the revival of Rory's music in the last few years and apart from gigging extensively in Europe, they headlined Rory Gallagher tribute events in Ireland, England, Holland, Germany, Greece, Spain, Norway and the USA.

Sinnerboy will bring out the very best of Rory Gallagher's music with a repertoire that covers every era of the late Rory's career. The Vienna gig will be something really special with the line-up of Barry Barnes, Dave Burns and John D Clayton. Hard years on the road gave these three guys a telepathic understanding of what each other is doing, and on this great night sparks will fly!

"This is the proof that my brother’s music lives on" (Donal Gallagher).



Riki Massini And The Bonus Track Band (ITA)

Riki Massini is present on the most prestigious stages in Europe, in the last decade he toured through countries like the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, France, China and the USA. He already played at the Rory Gallagher Tribute Festivals in Ireland (Ballyshannon and Cork), the UK, the Netherlands and Norway, but also at important festivals like the Chicago Blues Festival (USA), Blues To Bop (CH) or the Pistoia Blues Festival (ITA). He was support to many famous international musicians, amongst them Joe Cocker, Jethro Tull, Joe Bonamassa, Louisiana Red or Mick Taylor. 

By Donal Gallagher, Riki Massini is considered one of the best "Rory-interpreters". Mick Abrahams (Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig) called him "one of Italy's finest blues guitarists, a truly excellent and gifted player".




Etched In Blue (GER)

The band was formed as a tribute band in 2007, as an idea of three guys from Saarland/Germany in memory of the departed musician Rory Gallagher. Their repertoire offers, beside songs by Rory Gallagher, amongst others also songs by Jimi Hendrix, Ten Years After and Cream. Taking into considerations that "covering a song" does not only mean "covering a song" they put 110% of hard work and passion into their music which can be felt at any of their live gigs. In 2011 they published their first album "Homeless" with five songs written and composed on their own.

Etched In Blue are Nico Kiefer (vocals, guitar, harp, mandolin), Daniel Strullmeier (bass) and Benedikt Lampel (drums).





Kutscher's Blues Band (AUT)

Kutscher’s Blues Band succeed in blending the rock-spirit of the 1960s and 1970s with sounds that Rage Against The Machine, Muse or Mando Diao are famous for. That’s why the band’s music attracts both fans of the blues-rock genre and lovers of classic-rock and pop-acts.

Virtuosic guitar riffs go hand in hand with marvellous songwriting and gorgeous lyrics. The band manages to tear down the walls between different genres of music, typical elements of blues-rock mingle with elements of classic-and alternative-rock.

The band was founded in 2015 and consists of Stephan Kutscher (vocals, guitar), Consti Höffinger (bass) and Reinhard Höbart (drums).






Miss Kaytie (AUT)

Being the only real “miss” of the vintage-blues band MISS KAYTIE I have the privilege to be complemented by four men at once evening by evening. Whether by Oliver Lepai on bass or by Dave Taferner on drums … both always seek to maintain a tactful acquaintance. Michael Taucher on the Hammond is rarely chary on stage and to me. The harmony on stage is therefore ideal for a good blues feeling. However, only due to my longtime partner and frontman of MISS KAYTIE, Manuel Kainz, the evening is truly perfect. With his skilled and soulful hands which he can´t keep off me all evening long, he manages to get sounds out of me which I could not have considered possible. He also frequently spoils me with original songs which completely have me on a string. Once he accompanies these songs with his smoky blues voice I might just lose myself, and out of ecstasy scream out funky, rocky and jazzy sounds instead of bluesy ones. This caprice, stimulated by the expressive play of my four men, just is my due as the spotlighted MISS KAYTIE!
