All members in Solid Faces have grown up listening to Classic Hard Rock and really do love the great songs been made, aren’t you also?! If not, you are definitely surfing on the wrong web page. Solid Faces even play songs that so many other cover bands have been plying to death long before but just enjoy them too much and can’t resist doing it.
In no way Solid Faces try to sound exactly as those great classic bands because no one ever could, instead the band members brings their own soul and inspiration into the songs and the result is Solid Faces tribute to Classic Hard Rock.
"Hope you enjoy our performance of Classic Hard Rock as much as we enjoy playing it!"
Johan, Henric, Sven, Anders and Roger
