Our music can be
categorized as good old rock. It’s melodious; the lyrics
are uncomplicated and you will hear many catchy riffs
with longer guitar and organ solos.
All the songs
have been taken from the repertoire of the two classic
legendary British rock groups
You’ll hear Golden Oldies from the albums In Rock (DP),
Machine Head (DP), Demons and Wizards (UH) and The
Magician’s Birthday Party (UH) as well as newer material
from the Perfect Strangers album (DP).
The main focus
is on the 1970’s repertoire, which was the golden decade
for these bands. Both Deep Purple and Uriah Heep have
been active since the late 1960’s, and are still doing
concerts around the world.
The famous Smoke
On The Water riff has been played by generations of
guitar players since its release in 1972. Many of you
will also remember the powerful screams from Deep Purple
singer Ian Gillan on the classical tune Child in Time,
and the heavily distorted organ in the intro of Lazy.
This music allows for plenty of improvisation on guitar,
organ and drums. All this can be heard at Purple Heep’s
live shows, and the renowned Hammond organ is of course
The band`s focus
is on presenting the music as close to the originals as
possible, but without sounding like a static recording.
This music should be alive and we strive to give our
audience a feeling of the magical atmosphere that always
followed these bands’ live shows.
Purple Heep has
been support band for Nazareth and Dr. Hook.
