AND THE WINNER IS...

...THE AGENCY!




It’s been one of the strangest festival of the past few years. Rain, thunderstorms, wind, sun and amazing bands. After 3 days of drinking and partying we have finally come to an end for another season. Nothing could stop us from enjoying the rock and roll lifestyle. Not even bad weather……...It’s time to say the winner.....the winner is (drum roll please) THE AGENCY!!!  all the way from DENMARK. They walked away with the top price and were crowned world champions….or Weltmeister as they say here in Germany (after winning the last world cup in 2014 we learned how to say that)  But before we tell you anything else, let’s go through it from the start.


Band number 6 e number 5 were OAKS ABOVE (Canada) and FRANK & LE FORME SONICHE. Band number 4 is not exactly  a band but a solo artist with loops...SNARE COVER from Japan. Number 3 were THE TRUEMEN. A great effort from both these acts that gave their hearts and souls with their performances even though the rain was a downer. The best drummer was the "monster" from ANVILED and he gets a set of ZULTAN ROCK CYMBALS. The best bass player was the guy from the phenomenal italian guy from FRANK & LE FORME SONICHE and he gets a MARKBASS Head. The best guitar player gets a beautifully made SG GIBSON guitar and it goes to the guy from DELIRIOUS MOB CREW. The best singer was Takeshi, the solo project under the name SNARE COVER.  and the results were unanimous on this decision. He gets a AKG wireless microphone set. The best Arrangements award is a new award that was introduced this year and so it’s a historical moment for us and it was a pleasure to hand it to  61 MINDS. This year we also have a prize for best keyboard player and the top spot went to TRUEMEN. He gets some gear from our sponsors K&M.
And now we get closer to the top….Second place went to VOSEM PO GRINVICHU from Russia and the top spot went to:.....take a deep breath please because we’re about to call your name out....... THE AGENCY!. Denmark’s finest.


After ROCK HARD POWER SPRAY, The danish band that won many years ago and that went on to sign to Sony records ,another danish act is taking the crown. They walked away with the top price and were crowned world champions. Their performance was just great.


Ok, we wanted to let you know that ALL the bands were absolutely brilliant! The young boys from THE AGENCY, still shocked from the announcement, rushed to the main stage, which is almost as big as the town of Rothenburg itself,  where they kicked the Taubertal Festival punters in the face with driven rock …as always........I say this every year: If Andy Warhol said everybody has 15 minutes of fame he was wrong in this case...they had 3 days of fame. It has been a mad weekend for this young band…


They made people go nuts… crazy under the sunny sky…..yes! Finally the sun!!! When the giant screen flashed a 50 foot tall teen-age lead singer and everybody was looking, we knew that this was the right band. Mission accomplished.


The jury, which included UK promoters, German promoters, music Publishers and Marshall Records reps, did a superb job and we thank them for giving us their time and they obviously thanked us for giving them the booze and the bands.

And so another year has gone and much beer was consumed back stage…can we please do it again next year???? Compliments to ALL the wonderful musicians that played……now let's go and party some more and watch the headliners…ROCK ON!!!!!
