History :

The band ‘On stage’ was formed in 2015 as a cover-band. All of the band-members had previous experience in other formations with exception of Michel Verhoeven. Michel was a well known international reggae DJ with his soundsystem Boombastic Sound. Christiaan Matheve played in former Folk-song band Plus Minus, Bart Smets was member of The Runds and Alibi Ike and Frank Stoffelen drummed in several bands.

During a street-festival in Kessel-lo, Leuven, Belgium in 2015 they met each other and decided to play together and On Stage was born. In 2018 Bart Smets was replaced by Andre Triangle as lead guitarist. At special occasions, the group invites guests to perform with them.

In 2021 An Moonen joined the band on keyboards and vocals.

In 2022 Frank Stoffelen was replaced by Benny Stranen on drums

Our playlist :

Because of our broad interest in music, songs are chosen with full consent of each band member. The variety of the songs keeps the playlist both surprising and interesting for the performers and the audience.

We love to play, so if you work with us,we’ll work with you. Make sure everything at the venue is fastened, no loose items remain, and get ready to party!
