“He had this ’65 Firebird III hanging on the wall. It was one of the best guitars I’d ever played. Some weeks later, I dreamed about it. I was like, ‘That’s the Holy Grail!’” DeWolff’s Pablo van de Poel on the quest to land his literal dream guitar

DeWolff are a three-piece band comprising brothers Pablo (guitar and vocals) and Luka van de Poel (drums) with keyboard player Robin Piso. The band takes its inspiration from the tie-dye days of the late 60s, and they pull it off, too.

The sheer enthusiasm for music that was made before any of them were born exudes from the stage, providing audiences with a mix of nostalgia and up-to-the-moment frenzied rock.
