Henrik didn’t look for his musicians – and yet, he found them! By now, the band has become something like a family. Four musicians who all taught themselves how to play their instruments! – This sounds very promising and proves to be an ideal prerequisite for the Blues genre.
Four self-taught musicians with a passion for groovy Blues Rock. Four friends with the common goal to turn each show into a real musical highlight for themselves and for their fans. – This is LIVE MUSIC!
Henrik is a self-taught musician, a multi-instrumentalist, and a composer. He loves the Blues. Motivated by Gary Moore, he made the guitar his main instrument. He started his career as a musician in small venues without any payment, but with faithful fans. Through his engagement as opening act for Joe Bonamassa in 2006, Henrik gained access to a bigger audience. Over the course of the past few years, he has opened up for B.B. King, Gary Moore, Peter Green, and Johnny Winter. His own tours in Germany are mostly sold out. In Europe, the interest in his music has been growing. The nomination for the British Blues Awards is a rare honor for a German Blues musician.
Mo is a musical aficionado and a self-taught musician. After a few failed piano lessons, he was intuitively attracted by the authentic sound of an old Hammond organ. Inspired by Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, and the cult band The Meters, he was captivated by its groove. Warm and nonchalant, he charms the sound of the old days out of his Hammond.
Since 2008, Mo has been an official member of the Henrik Freischlader Band.
Theo started out late as a self-taught musician. At the age of 17, he picked up the instrument that was missing in his friends’ bands. Within the short period of three years and inspired by Kool & The Gang, Prince, Chick, and others, he became a bass player through and through. When he was 20 years old, he already signed his first record deal. His perfect timing, powerful sound, and the optimal, modest use of his instrument make him indispensable.
Since early 2009, Theo has been an official member of HFB.
Björn is a “full-blooded”, self-taught musician. At the age of 16, he started to play the drums and used every opportunity to play live. His expressive playing is powerful, precise, and absolutely reliable. He has composed songs for other artists, released children’s songs, and set poems to music. His list of references is long and colorful; he feels at home playing all kinds of music – from death metal to classical music.
Since 2010, Björn has been the official drummer of HFB.
