The Re-Union 2010 & 2011

Three Bands performed in 2010 and 2011 six Re-Union Gigs in Saulheim (Rheinhessen) and Velbert Germany. Many Fans from the 60s came to the concerts and the good old Rock'n Roll time came back. Many friends met after 30 - 40 years and were excited about seeing each other and exchange personal life experience. The fans were also excited and surprised by the professional and high quality level Music the band delivered. Musicians from the Flaming Stars and friends from Ted & Die Fremden and The Devils performed as the core band at all six Gigs. Further Re-Union concerts are not planned.
