Biografie

The Simple Minds Tribute Band 1984, was founded in 2004 by Eugene Hoppenbrouwers (vocals), Peter Vergouwen (guitar), Maurice Mannesse (bass), Bas van Iersel (drums), Hans de Zwart and Ferencz Koch (keyboards).

The guitarist Eugene Hoppenbrouwers was playing with the idea of beginning a singing career in a tribute band to one of the most famous and yet least imitated new wave bands, Simple Minds. The repertoire of the early eighties appealed to him, above all 'Sparkle in the Rain' and 'New Gold Dream'. Finding enthusiastic blokes for the job was one thing, but coming across the right musicians was another. It was a great ambition to achieve the unique sound and atmosphere of the Simple Minds.
