||Rock 'n' Roll blood in his veins.
LINO started up LINO AND FRIENDS in Spain Madrid back in the ’90 and it was continued, after moving back to in Holland, with two Dutch FRIENDS. The artistic material luckily stayed the same. Still the band plays blues rock music referring to Jimi Hendrix, BB King and Willie Dixon. LINO AND FRIENDS frame their own powerful songs with some classics from these legendary blues men.
The rhythm section is built with Carlos en Ruben, best friends of Lino's since the Rotterdam Conservatory education. It guarantees a solid ground loaded with musical experience .
Lino Vishnudatt, guitar and lead vocals
