Founded in 2011 by the common desire of five friends to do blues covers, the band quickly ended up composing its own songs. Numerous concerts followed, allowing Heavy Petrol to gain a certain notoriety. The band’s sound is strongly influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and Joe Bonamassa. Today, Heavy Petrol consists of Woody Lunari on vocals and harmonica, Chris Moiny and Steve Richer on guitars, Dan Kries on bass, Konni Troost on drums and Elise Nunes on vocals.
Having accompanied on stage renowned artists such as Brother Dege & the Brotherhood of Blues, Allman Betts Band, Ana Popovic and Junior Mack among others, and having performed on the stages of the “Blues and Jazz Rally” and “Blues Express” festivals, the band had the great honour of representing Luxembourg at the final of the last European Blues Challenge which took place in April 2019 in Ponta Delgada in the Azores.
