In the summer of 2010 Marcel Luntungan
, Hans Sligter
and Sjoerd van den Broek
performed together for the first time during an open mic session in grandcafe “Sparkling” in Hilversum, The Netherlands. These three men being good singers individually and holding a respectable track record as musicians in various bands and projects was already a known fact, but this spontaneous joint action appears to be a classic example of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. And so a new band arises; The LSB Experience
. A binding factor and an important musical inspiration for the new band is the American so called “West Coast Sound”. Several British acts that are known for using rich harmony vocal arrangements also form a common passion.
The LSB Experience setlist now includes songs from: Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, The Eagles, Venice, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles and Crowded House, to mention just a few names. Obviously, the repertoire is still expanding with covers and original material. While the original trio formation is more focused on the harmony vocals and acoustic guitars, the LSB Experience also appears with a rhythm section. This 5-piece band, with on drums Peter Deiman and on bass Rob Hendriks, shifts toward the more dynamic, arranged and swinging songs within the repertoire, thus creating an even greater variation in the sound and making the band more versatile.
