FIREFLY

FIREFLY, the name stands for a six-membered tribute-band, who devoted themselves to the genius work of the rock legend URIAH HEEP. Originated from musicians of well-known bands out of NRW, FIREFLY is going to become one of the more popular bands in the German Tribute scene. Carried by the voice of ex-Demon's Eye singer, Jens Kreikebaum, Michael Boecher at organ, piano and synthesizer, Matthias Quitadamo at the guitar, Olaf Bruch at the bass, Joerg Boecher at the drums and Monika Dengel at vocals, each FIREFLY-show becomes an event, no one should miss! Beside the filigree and with much devotion played instrumentation, which matches an earthy, groovy lava sound, FIREFLY places value on the choral vocal arrangements, which, typical for the URIAH HEEP songs, has become a trademark of the band and is an important element of the FIREFLY sound!! Of course, not only the hits like July Morning, Gypsy, Easy Livin', Circle Of Hands and not least Lady In Black are played, there are several rare "song pearls" like Echoes In The Dark or Firefly and others included in the program. All the songs are not covered the usual way, the individual abilities of each musician give new life to them, without falsifying the flair of the originals!! A professional stage show always is a guarantee to enthuse the audience. The joy in making music and the profesionalism of the band makes each show an event worth seeing. Virtuosity on guitar and keyboards, and a compact rock-rhythm provide a basis to both vocalists, to present excellent interpretations of well-known URIAH HEEP evergreens.

Jens Kreikebaum - Lead vocals
Normally biographies only exists, to praise yourself... So we think, a few facts about us and our way "into the music" is rather more interesting for you. I've always been inspired by big artists. During my early years there were The Rubettes, The Sweet and The Hollies. Later, I detected my passion for splendid singers like Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes or even David Byron from Uriah Heep. My own style is a melting-pot out of all this influences and it is coming to its full validity at Firefly. When I heard the song "July Morning" for the first time, I was over and out. The changing from the heavy, Hammond organ-based sound to the more quieter passages of the song, always being aware of David Byrons & Ken Hensleys passion, really was a "key-experience" for me. So there was no need of asking me twice, if I was interested in lighting up the magic of Uriah Heep songs with Firefly...

Monika Dengel - Lead / Backing vocals
I started "continuous" singing late in 2001, again being part of a semi-professional choir. Earlier I made my first steps in a children- and school-choir and I tried to play an instrument but never became as good as it should be. After taking singing lessons for about 1 1/2 years my passion for professional singing finally was awoken in 2003. I never was aware of Uriah Heep except for a few popular songs; in fact the big years of the band were "before I grew up"... until I was asked, if I was interested, being a part of Firefly as a background-singer. So I started listening to the music of Heep and the variety of the songs got me really fascinated. So there was only one logical answer for me...

Matthias Quitadamo - Guitar
From the age of 10, I'm playing the guitar. Among other things, the music of Uriah Heep had a significant influence on me. Especially the abilities of Mick Box were an on-going encouragement for me to be faithful to the guitar as "my" instrument. Although I have played in different bands with different styles, finally, I returned to the classic rock music. Temporarily my job made it necessary to pause the band work, but I never stopped playing guitar. So I realized how much I have missed this special band-feeling. Therefore I have forced my activities and accepted the challenge with pleasure, to play in a band like Firefly.

Jörg Böcher - Drums / Vocals
Drumming fascinates me since 1983 - I never wanted to play another instrument... Particularly prog-bands like Yes or Genesis always sounded great to me. But I love Uriah Heep in a very special way since my youth. In my archive there are still a lot of old Heep-discs (LPs!!). Therefore my way to Firefly was "a writing on the wall". With our actual line-up many old classics can be brought back to life. Songs, which even Heep doesn't play in their normal standard-program. The mixture of hard rock, bombastic keyboards and brilliant backing-vocals can't be heard often in our days. Especially the demands of the songs is making the teamwork of Firefly unique and it's becoming a great adventure and challenge to me. Some things in life have to be special...

Olaf Bruch - Bass
Since I was 10 years old, I'm playing music. When I was a little boy I got my first Uriah Heep-LP - "Return To Fantasy" - as a reward. Since then the band caught me in a trap. Of course I wanted to do it just as well, so we founded our first band very quickly. Until today music locks me in a spell. Although I've changed from a musician to a producer in my own studio, the music of Uriah Heep took me back on stage. One of the really fascinating aspects of Uriah Heep is the variety of over 30 years of music - and band history. This makes it tempting to play in a band like Firefly. Especially the songs of the early seventies with Gary Thain on bass guitar are coming back to new life...

Michael Böcher - Organ / Piano / Synths / Vocal
The most important influences for me were "Rick Emerson", Jon Lord from Deep Purple and even Ken Hensley. For many years I have played in a Purple Tribute Band, yet finally my way led me to Firefly. I remember very well, Uriah Heep always took a pole-position in my private list of favorite bands. This band was and ever will be a synonym for creativity and power! In particular, Hensley's variety of sounds, the open space for improvisation and the earthy heavy sound, infiltrating my ears like a tank, were the reasons for me, to get on board and join Firefly...

Rämouns

"Before the RAMONES, there was nothing" a rock-critic once said. For any RAMONES Fan, and there are loads of them, this sentence is a true statement. The dissapointment must have been great when the band retired on the 6th of August 1996 officially from the stage. Any hopes of a renunion were shattered after the demise of our heroes Joey, Johnny and DeeDee. So when there was nothing before the RAMONES there can only be nothingness afterwards... right?

Not quite - because firstly the music of our heroes is more alive than ever. And secondly there exist preferably long-haired, sneaker- and leather jackets wearing Freaks who have nothing better to do than playing RAMONES-Songs as true to original as ever possible. Counted among those weirdoz are the four of the RÄMOUNS, whose bandname is not by accident a phonetically germanized version of RAMONES. Not only do they play RAMONES-Songs true to original, but much, much more: They look exactly like them and deliver the original stage-show with everything, including the Pinhead and GABBA GABBA HEY sign. The Setlist ranges from, how could it be any different, classics like Blitzkrieg Bop via Sheena is a Punk Rocker to Pet Semetary and I believe in Miracles - quasi once across (almost) all records.

For all true RAMONES-Fans, who feel like celebrating with four "Birds of Feathers" the best tracks of one of the greatest Rock 'n' Roll Bands ever, the RÄMOUNS exist. All true RAMONES-Fans, who have missed them live on stage will at least get a little idea of what they have missed.

The Rämouns are:

Lemmy Rämoun - as Johnny Ramone
Butsch Rämoun - as Joey Ramone
Micky Rämoun - as DeeDee (CJ) Ramone
Fitty Rämoun - as Marky Ramone
