In the eighties and nineties he toured the Dutch club-circuit with Hot Legs and Wild Ride. Holland’s one-and-only showman was a member of the Van Halen tribute band Hot For Teacher from 1997 through 2000. Flamboyant, sexy and especially…flexible (bookings include split jump!). For twenty years his nickname is "David Lee Pieters" and "Flying Fred". Says it all..

He has been a Van Halen fan from the start (1978). He was a member of Anouk's band during "Nobody’s Wife" (1997-1998).
He accurately duplicates Eddie Van Halen's guitar parts: a true copycat. Listen to "I’m The One" and "Little Dreamer".

Top bass player from the The Hague rock circuit, who landed via bands like Topaz and Midnight Temptation with Billy The Kid and was succesful with this band, e.g. as opening-act for Brian May (Queen), Golden Earring and Anouk. Like Michael Anthony with Van Halen, lays the solid basis for the rest of the band. Dave's secret weapon is his phenomenal voice: his backing vocals are "too good to be true".

If you say Ronni, you say 'Let's play drums, drums, drums!!!'. This drum teacher played all over Europe with the Jan Rijbroekband. Together with Dave he formed the tight rhythm section in Midnight Temptation. Ronni always plays a supporting role to the music, but he does not shy away from technical mastery: listen to "Hot For Teacher".
All in all, four experienced musicians with the right Van Halen state of mind.
