Paris Texas is a 5-member band direct from Belgium.
Built around songsmith Gerrit Hüppertz who finds the inspiration for his songs in the many road trips he has experienced through the southern states of America. Their music is peppered with all the goodness that rich soil has to offer from Americana to traditional bluegrass to old time country music. Always with an ear for fine harmonies and melody.
These seasoned musicians who previously earned their spurs in acoustic music with other European line ups play with a steady groove whose fine picking and refined singing together takes their music making to a higher level.
They are: Gerrit Hüppertz / vocals & guitar (MAZLOV), Dave CROKAERTS / vocals & guitar (MAZLOV), Dirk PEERAER / vocals & dobro (RAWHIDE), Jan MICHIELSEN / vocals & mandolin (FOUR WHEEL DRIVE, BLUE MAXX), Maarten MICHIELSEN / vocals & double bass (YOU RASKAL YOU).
