WINO & CONNY OCHS touring Europe for their blues project !

Written by News


Here’s a collab that arises from a fortuitous meeting. The meeting between a heavyweight of metal and a loose canon of acoustic rock, sharing the same feelings about music and life. Scott Weinrich alias WINO, leader of SAINT VITUS and THE OBSESSED, and CONNY OCHS released a perfect acoustic blues project entitled “Heavy Kingdom”. They are now in Europe playing small clubs, simply carrying their guitars with them, plus a mountain of emotion to share with the crowd. Getting carried away by “Heavy Kingdom” sounds like a sweet euphemism.

Don’t miss the boat, the duo will be touring small clubs only, so it’s the ideal moment to enjoy an intimist acoustic session with WINO and CONNY OCHS. Blues, folk, two voices marked with life experience, two intense men with a strong charisma. Heaven actually.

Let me salute my friends of NEGATIVE BELIEFS, who managed to book the band in Bordeaux, France (horns up !). Till then, here’s a video made in Czech Republic when they played in early March :
