For Absent Friends (FAF) + support Sound of Strangers
15:00 - 18:00
For Absent Friends – With two new friends (Clemens & Jan) , FAF-members Ed, Edwin and Hans played a “story of Genesis” tribute show in theaters during 2010’s (Squonk.nl). This reacquaintance with the progressive rock music we love so much was a blast and a learning bonanza! Then new original material started popping up during rehearsals. And then Covid came. What else to do than seriously writing and recording? Magic! We know we said goodbye to FAF. But it didn’t feel right to release this album under a new name (SQ1) as we did with the very first song we finished (The Poet). So it’s time to say hello again to old and new friends. We will see you.
Sound of Strangers – Preceded and inspired by the likes of Marillion, Rush, Riverside and Pink Floyd, Sound Of Strangers have set out to establish themselves as a new household name in modern (progressive) rock music.
Formed by Serge Mannee in 2016 as a continuation of his previous band The Works, Sound Of Strangers’ lineup took shape with the addition of Paul Peperkamp, Henk Zorge and Paul Krempel. After the addition of Oscar Alblas (a.o. Kong), the band’s debut album “Crossing Borders” was recorded and will be released in mid-2022.
