General Information.

Based in Alkmaar, founding members Nelis Hoogers (guitar, vocals), Gilles Keessen (bass) and Gijs Steenbergen (drums) joined forces in 2003 to form Abe Diddy & The Krautboys. Jelle de Gooyer, contributing blues harp on a number of tracks, began cooperating a year later.

The band released their debut full-lenght album, titled “Save Us” in 2005.
An EP, containing four blues jams and some live recordings, along with a split -7 inch with Dutch stonerdoom legends Toner Low met ears of the public just shortly after that.
All three releases, including the critically acclaimed “Save Us”, were sold out rapidly after their releases.

Autumn 2009 brought up changes – armed with a great rhytmical force, provided by new drummer Jasper van den Broeke (Iedereen Zóôò Jotje), the band began a six month period of intense practicing and finally hit the stages again in spring 2010.

Abe Diddy & The Krautboys, nowadays a classic rock line-up trio are with matured material fierce as ever, equipped with a distinct blend of heavy genres, which is just one of the things that makes their sound unique… technically polished yet a triggered raw force.
