MAYTREE RHYTHM & BLUES BAND - Biography
When we are talking about the late 80's, it refers to the ending of the Cold War between USSR and the Western world.
But those days, also another revolution took place …
In the deep down south of Holland, singer/guitar player Frans Meyboom formed his MAYTREE RHYTHM & BLUES BAND.
Nowadays, he is still the heartwarming and inspiring leader of the band.
MAYTREE RHYTHM & BLUES BAND developed its sound in a bordering area where the coalminers lived their sober existence of poverty and hard work. In this social environment people grew up with the blues, but there was also a warm feeling of unity.
