Yesshows was founded in 2016 during a progressive rock night in de Boerderij in Zoetermeer (the Netherlands).
The band consists of five top musicians who bring the music of Yes from the Yessongs era with the same passion and energy as Yes did in the 70s. The comments from the worldwide Yes fans are very positive. Some even talk about Yesshows as one of the best Yes tribute bands in the world.
If you want to feel that energy and passion, then you should not miss this.
Meet the Band
Ebert was born in 1963 and is Yes fan since 1979. He plays progressive rock since 1999. Before that Ebert played several styles like Pop, Soul and Jazzrock/Fusion. Yessongs was Eberts 2nd album he ever bought and now he has the opportunity to keep Wakemans parts alive!
Enzo was born 1971, the release year of Fragile. At the age of 13 Enzo started playing in bands, playing New wave to Progressive rock. Now he has the chance to seriously play the Yes repertoire. A good occasion to dive into Steve Howe parts.
Katinka sang here whole life, but didn't find the stage until the 21st century. At first in a coverband with her father and from 2013 as a singer in Infloyd and Ayreon. Now as the lead vocalist in Yesshows, an offer she couldn't resist.
Lex was born in 1988. He is a multi instrumentalist, playing drums, piano and guitar. Diagnosed with Gilles de la tourette syndrome, he now is famous for playing the piano in the Tourette band. Besides Yesshows Lex plays in Genesis Project, Mangrove and his solo project Deflexion.
Roland was born in 1964. If Yessongs had been released then he would have had it as a pacifier. Yessongs is the album he played the most in his live and this album motivated him to play the electrical guitar at the age of 12. In 1982 a Fender Precision bass was bought and as an autodidact he learned to play bass guitar. YES, King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Genesis are his most favorite bands and as a guitarist and singer he used to play songs from these bands in several cover bands. Surprisingly he has never played bass guitar in a band before and he is looking forward to play Chris Squire’s beautiful bass lines with Yesshows live on stage!
