Details of Silbermond and the Ticket Luck value
German rock music came into its own in late 1960s. To-date its has spawned many innovative and influential bands spanning genres such as krautrock, New Wave, Heavy metal, punk, and industrial. Germany itself is a big enough market to spin out hefty profits.
As of the German branch of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry 2004 estimates, sales of records, CDs, music DVDs, and cassettes totaled $2.15 billion. Not all songs produced in Germany are in German, but German-language pop recordings are notably rising.
Driving the trend is the resurgence of Berlin as a cultural capital. Young entrepreneurs have taken abandoned factories and breweries and transformed them into rocking venues for music live shows nearly every night of the week. Notable contributions came from a band called Silbermond.
Silbermond is a German rock band from Bautzen, Saxony. Silbermonds band members originally met in 1998 when they took part in the music project Ten Sing. The bands line-up consists of Stefanie Klo?, Andreas Nowak and Johannes and Thomas Stolle.
Two years later, they decided to form their own group and began performing locally under the name Jast. The band changed their name to Silbermond in 2001, enlisting Stefanie Pony Klo? as lead vocalist, Thomas Ratte Stolle as guitarist, Johannes Hannes Stolle as bassist, and Andreas Nowi Nowak as drummer.
