FREE BONUS GIVEAWAY! the Freewheelers Live at Bluezy 2012 (HERE)
The Freewheelers have been around for over ten years now, and we may say their mission, to bring the cello into new realms of music, has been accomplished. Many new bands now have a cello in the line-up, and some even play blues with a cello standing up, central stage.
Ilene plays cello, guitar, ukelele, keyboards and sings, and Bas plays bass. They work with various other musicians, mostly drummers, keyboard- and guitar players. OPENED for Raymundo Amador, Amadeu Casas, Fillmore Slim, RoHarpo the Bluesman, played with Charlie Adams, Daniel Castro, Tim van Delft (de Staat drummer), Wolfpin drummer Maarten Witzel and Wolfpin/Band of Friends guitarist Marcel Scherpenzeel, Jeramy Norris, Johnny Nitro (SF Saloon jamsession), Bonnie Hofkin, Johnny Knox (Torch club), Willem van der Schoof (dutch blues award winning keyboard player), Nicko Christiansen (singer legendary dutch blues band Livin’Blues), Cindy Peress, T-Bone Fisher, Lamar Chase, Robert Mills (Hailers), Jaime Norambuena, Jeroen Damen and Jeroen van Niele (LBX bass).
