Biography

Vandenberg's MoonKings is the brainchild of Adriaan ‘Adje’ Vandenberg. The Dutch guitarist, composer, producer and painter first rose to prominence in the 80s with Vandenberg – who doesn’t know the smash hit ‘Burning Heart’? – but it was his stint in Whitesnake that catapulted VDB into stardom. In 1987 Whitesnake had two global hits with ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Is This Love’. In the 90s the star guitarist exchanged his sixstring for a paintbrush but in 2013 the old flame was rekindled and Adje recruited several young (and excellent) musicians to form Vandenberg’s MoonKings. Their eponymous debut was well-received and their sophomore effort ‘MK II’ (2017) features a band that clearly knows how to craft excellent songs. After their 2014 GMM debut Vandenberg’s MoonKings are making their second GMM appearance. (#GMM18)
