Biography

The guys of Lick are true hardrock fans! After years spending their summers on the rooftop of the brothers Groen’s house listening to LP's of all the hardrock heroes, they decided to start a band of their own. A real band, like Guns 'n Roses, AC/DC and Aerosmith.

Under the influence of rock 'n roll they created a rich, full and authentic sound that sends a chill down your spine that hasn't been felt since the 80's. Raw guitar licks, bashing drums and a lead singer that 'slightly' resembles Steven Tyler in his younger years.

Not long after their first show back in 2008 they got the change to produce their first single with GEM frontman Maurits Westerik. The single was a success and the band played in venues and festivals all over Holland. They shook the stages of venues as Atak (Enschede), Luxor Live (Arnhem), Hedon (Zwolle), Effenaar (Eindhoven) and Burgerweeshuis (Deventer) and shared them with the legendary rockbands UFO [GB], Negative [FIN] and their Dutch partners in rock Vanderbuyst.

After these successes it was time for something new. Early 2010 they started the recording of their debut EP including 5 tracks, which was released October 2010 in a sold-out local venue. They also released the music video of the bands second single 'Bad As Luck'. The music video was partly recorded in Hollywood and aired on national television. Both the cd and the music video were a great success.

The new cd launched the band to a higher level and the stages got bigger and bigger, including festival deBeschaving in Utrecht and Bevrijdingsfestival in Zwolle, where they played for a crowd of 2000. The band is still going strong and is currently working on a follow up for their EP.

In August 2011 Lick decided to go on without guitarist Jasper Ellenbroek.
