It's amazing, it's unbelievable! One would think Rod Stewart & The Faces decided to have a reunion! You're hearing that same sassy rockin' energy as well as the heartfelt raw emotions that characterize the unmistakable sound and songs of The Faces and Rod Stewart's later solo career. It's all there. The voice, the instruments, the energy, the sense of humor and their joy in playing together. Just close your eyes and you're right back in the 70's, 80's and 90's.
Because Nod Stewart is not just any tribute band soullesly copying songs or leaning on look-alikes. Thanks to their long experience as professional rock musicians and their personal musical backgrounds these musicians capture the spirit and energy of the original material. And being life long fans, they easily improvise while staying true to the original style and sound.
How is this possible, you ask? The members of Nod Stewart all share a love for the music of Rod Stewart and The Faces that has greatly influenced their musical development from the start. Besides that they've all been professional musicians with famous Dutch acts for decades, touring nationally as well as internationally. So when they got together it was an instant recipe for both professionalism as well as an understanding of the unique sound that The Faces produced. And it doesn't hurt that through their professional careers they've all been good friends for ages. Which clearly shows in the fun they have on stage.
Of course, many of the hits of The Faces and Rod solo can be heard. But also some of the lesser known songs, that were well loved by the original Faces and Rod himself, as shown in many a recorded live performance. All this to enhance that feeling of a band reunion.
