The Dutch punkband Durango is back with a vengeance !!!! Durango is founded in the early 90’s by Bertje (Bass / Lead Vocals), Adje (Guitar / Vocals) and Stevy (Drums) and plays Ramones-core, short fast songs in the style of their heroes, The Ramones.
The band plays all around the country with tight and energetic performances and is building on a solid live reputation. Along with Flesh Merchants, also from The Hague (The Netherlands), they tour extensively and the highlight is performing as a support act for the legendary UK Subs. After some internal turmoil the band decided to call it quits in 1994. Now, over 21 years later, Durango has a new line up with original bassist Bertje, guitarist Richie and drummer Eddie in the ranks.
This restart is celebrated with a legendary performance, Durango is actually the support act for none other than CJ Ramone, bassist of the legendary punk band The Ramones on August 9th, 2016 at the venue Podium Duycker in Hoofddorp!
CJ Ramone was brought to The Netherlands through Pinhead Bookings for an exclusive small club show for just 200 fans.
In October 2016 Durango is support act again for an American giant, none other than Lord Bishop! This time it is a home base gig in the Musicon venue in our wonderful The Hague!
2017 proves to be a big year. Durango will be playing at the legendary Kaderock festival on June the 3rd! Durango is currently working hard on new material to release an album for the summer of 2017.
