It was the muller at the last church fair. No, it's not about the latest french crime scene, but about "gremsrock", a seven-piece band that was formed especially for the gremsdorf village festival. The kick-off was given by the gremsdorfer muller michael litz, when he joined katrin heinz-karg and dominik knoll at the kerwa in september.
"Casting at the kerwa
"Already during the kerwa-weekend we recruited the rough part of the band", report the two musicians – he plays guitar, she is there with keyboard and accordion. Robert ruhmann was the third in the group. "He was at the beer stand anyway, and we knew he played the drums. We asked him right away."
So it went on: raimund kratz from the brass band was brought on board as bass player, michael jager as second guitarist and finally as singers peter krettner and anna kestler. "Whereby each of us sings – everyone just what he can", explains katrin heinz-karg. After all, the musicians come from very different genres. Knoll, krettner and ruhmann are more into rock and metal. Kratz plays folk and brass music, as well as hard rock. Michael jager is with metal, funk, punk, rock and indie also rather to the harder track to be assigned. Heinz-karg, on the other hand, is rooted in classical music: "but i just do what i'm supposed to do", she laughs. The youngest of the group, singer anna kestler, has no band experience yet, but comes from a very musical family.
