LEIF DE LEEUW BAND
Leif is back at BRIDGE! During the first edition in 2023, one of our country's finest guitarists was already a prominent presence. That’s where he belongs: a stage where guitar music is hailed. Leif de Leeuw possesses the full package in his fingers: the tone, the feeling, the technique. Straight from his toes, through his heart, he draws stunning solos from his instrument. Notes that scream, cry, or whisper when necessary. It's no wonder the amiable guitarist has been voted best (blues)rock guitarist of the Netherlands six times in a row. Leif de Leeuw counts David Gilmour, Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, and Derek Trucks among his own guitar heroes. From these master guitarists, De Leeuw gleaned bits and pieces, shaping his unmistakable style.
With the Leif de Leeuw Band, it's not just about solos but also about catchy tunes. Alongside his eponymous band, Leif de Leeuw has gathered a group of musicians who create exciting Southern rock, blues, and Americana in the tradition of the Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Gov't Mule. Two drummers rev things up, and the Hammond organ adds even more fire to an already blazing ensemble.
