The Von Hertzen Brothers Interview 1/7/21
"Back at the Prog stage are Finnish Prog heroes The Von Hertzen Brothers. Playing a mix of classic Rock combined with Progressive elements, Folk, Punk and contemporary Rock, the band has a sound for everyone. Guitarist Kie, playing his battered white strat, gets some killer sounds out of his Vox amp with a set that has heavy guitar but also a big keyboard sound that has Rush-like qualities. Mikko Von Hertzen has a happy look on his face the whole time, although, if you are young, good looking and front a popular band, why wouldn’t you be. The heat of the weekend feels at it’s hottest here as Kie quips to the assembled photographers "We look way better when we are soaked". And not a drop of rain all day." That was part of our Von Hertzen Brothers Ramblin' Man Fair Day 2 review, exactly three years ago today, and after their set we caught up with guitarist Kie Von Hertzen and drummer Sami Kuoppamaki for an interview, which is today's Podcast Of The Day.
