ROCKNATION ISSUE 23 PAGE 23 What national bands have you played with? As a Thin Lizzy tribute band we have played with “The Band of Friends”, a band featuring original Rory Gallagher’s band members like Gerry McAvoy and Ted McKenna. We had also played with Vic Martin (Gary Moore Band Keyboard player) & Chris Tsangarides. Of course, we ‘ve done gigs together with many Greek bands too, like Backtrackin’, Saints’ n ‘Sinners and many more. Your band is from Athens, Greece. What is the music scene like there? Greece is famous for bands like Rotting Christ, Firewind, Septic Flesh, Innerwish etc. There is a very energetic heavy metal music scene, there are 3-4 very rocking venues and an indie scene with many garage, surf, punk bands. There are only a few melodic rock bands, melodic rock is not so popular in Greece. In a few words Greece has a very interesting music scene with lot of good music to bring out. What is some of the music you listen to now? Black Star Riders, The Darkness, Glyder to name a few. What plans do you have for 2016? We are planning to play as many gigs as possible as Noely Rayn, promote our album and starting writing new material for our second album. There are almost 4 new songs for the new album but at the time we are enjoying our debut. Thank you for taking time for this interview and last words to the fans?
