Finnish progressive rock band, Von Hertzen Brothers, makes a welcome return to RoSfest in 2019, this time as the Friday night headliners.
It’s been almost ten years since this fine Finnish band was booked for RoSfest first time around. At that time, the announcement of them signed to the festival was met with a few puzzled faces and question marks. Those who were aware of the band at that time, mainly due to their fantastic third album “Love Remains the Same” from 2008, knew what they were in for obviously, but many had quite the pleasant experience when they heard what the band delivered at RoSfest back in 2010.
We are bringing them back for the headliner slot in 2019. It is a good pairing with Cryptic Vision for starters, as both of them are returning bands that haven’t played for us for a number of years. In addition, Von Hertzen Brothers have continued being an active live and recording band all along, with four additional studio albums to their name, all of them strong, quality productions, and the band’s reputation as a potent and high quality live act have continued to grow too. The reports coming in from the band’s recently concluded 10 year celebration tour for “Love Remains the Same” are glowing brighter than the sun itself.
Van Hertzen Brothers have been gaining attention. It is this sonic exploration that has seen them blaze a trail across Europe since 2006, leading them to play with artists from Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars, Neil Young, Biffy Clyro, The Wildhearts and ZZ Top to Anathema and Opeth. With seven stunning studio albums to their credit, VHB have developed into a fantastic live band. This band is the perfect fit for the RoSfest lineup and its audience.
RoSfest 2019 will take place on May 3rd through 5th, 2019 at the Sarasota Opera House, Florida. The final line-up and schedule for the festival are Cryptic Vision, Entransient, Karmamoi, Phideaux, Jethro Tull 50th Anniversary tour with official members Martin Barre, Clive Bunker and Jonathan Noyce. Edge of Reality, Traverser, Flor de Loto and Riverside.
