This group redefines the term “Tuindwergie/garden gnome”. For the reason, they don’t stand much higher than traditional ceramic dwarves in people’s gardens.
The composition of this group is mathematically simple. 2 Brothers + 2 brothers = 4 Bra’s
Pieter de Jager is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist in the band. Also known as “Die Kort Dwerg”. He writes a lot of the lyrics as well. He was previously part of the Afrikaans group “Revolusie” where he played bass & did backing vocals.
Jean Swiegers, the drummer and backing vocalist – also know as “ De Dwerg”. He played for the hardcore experimental Afrikaans band “Vermoor jou Vriende” (2007 MK Rockspaaider (Northern) winners) after that he also joined “Revolusie” where he first started joining forces with Pieter & Emile. He’s also been playing for André Swiegers, singer-songwriter for a few years now.
Dawie de Jager, also known as “Die Berg Dwerg” plays bass guitar for the band. For the last 7 years he was part of the Afrikaans band “Klopjag” who did great and meant a lot for the Afrikaans music scene. He is the most calming member of the band.
Emile Swiegers – “Die Lang Dwerg” plays lead guitar, writes songs & does backing vocals for the band. Musical prodigy. He was also part of “Revolusie”. He’s been playing for André Swiegers since he was 14 years old.
Die Tuindwergies’ music grooves without pretence. It brings an absolute new sound and energy to the Afrikaans music scene that’s really in need of something new.
Innocent, melodic, groovyness.
