BOUNCE - Bon Jovi tribute band is a German tribute band that plays the songs of the American rock band Bon Jovi. The band was founded in 2001 in Wülfrath (North Rhine-Westphalia). Your distinguishing feature is a radio telescope (called satellite by fans), which is on the original cover of the Bon Jovi album 'BOUNCE'. The band tours all year round in Germany and the neighboring European countries.

Bounce - band history Edit source]

Oliver Henrich and Jens Rösel have been on the road as Das Dynamische Duo since September 1995, and their repertoire includes many Bon Jovi songs. In 2001 Oliver and Jens got the idea to give a pure Bon Jovi concert, as guest musician Sven Martin (i.a. t.A.T.u.) on the keyboard. There were also Tom Müller on bass and Markus Hoffmeister on drums.

The Bon Jovi revival band was born, but "Revival" didn't quite apply as Bon Jovi are still active, so the band was renamed after the recently released album BOUNCE.

At first the band only performed in the winter months due to Sven's residence in the USA. The response was so great at the time that the band decided to rehearse the whole program for a short tour three years in a row.

In 2004, Marcus Arnrich joined as a drummer.

2005 After Sven Martin left the band to live in the USA all year round, Johannes 'JoJo' Brunn joined as the new keyboardist.

From 2004 to 2006 the band played in this line-up. Since then, the year-end show in the Solingen Cobra has been a special highlight every year.

In May 2006, Olav Quick joined as the new drummer. In addition to the drums, Olav (together with front man Oliver) is responsible for the set lists. All musicians play the same instruments as the original. The appearance of the original is not mimicked.

In 2007 a 4-page report appeared in “Soundcheck”, one of the largest German music magazines.

Trivia [edit | Edit source]

BOUNCE play more than 45 gigs throughout the year.

The Bounce Fan Club, - Addicted to Bounce, has officially existed since April 2011, and after just a few days it had over 100 registered members.

After 8 months of production, BOUNCE released their first live CD on May 27, 2011, a selection of the best songs from the concert on July 3, 2010 at the Neumarkt in Solingen.
