G-Runs ‘n’ Roses at Didmarton 2024

Good afternoon and welcome to our second band announcement for Didmarton 2024. This time it’s the turn of a great European bluegrass band who first played for us in 2018, G-Runs ‘n’ Roses!

Upon hearing the name you expect to see a bunch of rough guys with tattoos and long hair, but the picture does not confirm your assumption. Luckily, these lads have other aces to pull out of their sleeves.

G-runs ‘n’ Roses are a young and energetic bluegrass band from the Czech Republic in the heart of Europe. They play both original and existing songs with a strong focus on solid rhythm and tight vocal harmonies. This is complemented with fancy instrumental solos and incorporated into elegant arrangements. However youthful their music may be, tasteful it shall remain, and the band retains a deep respect for traditional bluegrass music. The band was formed in July 2006 and their first CD “Learning To Fly” appeared in 2008. Their latest release “Gravity”, which features the second line-up of the band with Ondra Kozák on guitar, was released in May 2013. Both albums received enthusiastic reviews in the major bluegrass magazines.

Following a brief pause after the 2020 season, G-runs ‘n Roses returned to the scene in 2022 with a new line-up that still features veterans Ralph Schut and Milan Marek, but adds new members Vlado Krizan, Christopher Schut and Peter Burza.

The philosophy of G-runs ‘n’ Roses is, that if the band members are having fun, it shouldn’t be hard to share that fun with the audience. The result is a relaxed atmosphere, which gives every individual member enough space to add his own individual touch to the group’s music. Interaction with the audience is a key-element of any successful performance and the group will adapt itself to entertain audiences regardless of age or background.

Don’t miss this band they’re fantastic, so buy your advance tickets today! 😀
