Marcel Scherpenzeel was born in Amsterdam. He starts to play on
a drumkit when he was 10 years old, but it didn't take long. When
he was 12 Marcel got a guitar from his older brother and from that
point Marcel takes off. He starts to listen to a lot of great records
his dad has, like, John Lee Hooker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Rory
Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix and many others. When Marcel was 21 years
old he starts singing and messing around with rock, texas-blues,
pop, soul and rock and roll. Every night when Marcel is on stage,
you can feel the magic as if his soul left his body and hoping that
you take his soul and music home.
Marcel played with: Dave Gonzales (The Paladins - USA ),
Ron Hacker (USA), Tineke Schoenmaker (NL), The Juke Joints (NL),
The Marble Tones (NL), The Hoax (UK) and more.
Marcel performed on big festivals like: Jimi Hendrix Revival Festival
(Germany), Enniscorthy Blues Festival (Ireland), Open Air Am Bergen
(Germany), Harley Davidson Super Rally (Belgium), Paaspop (NL),
Bospop (NL) and more.
Marcel & Band can also be booked as a Rory Gallagher tribute.
