Diesel’s Sausalito Summernight was a radio hit in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands, peaking at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #1 in Canada. Thirty five years after its release, this classic road song is still getting regular airplay on American, Canadian, German and Dutch radio stations and has resided in the Dutch Top 2000 of All Times for many years. Diesel’s first hit single Goin’ Back to China peaked at #4 in the Japanese international chart and at #1 in the version of singer Yoko Katori.
Rekindled interest from several countries has prompted founding members Rob Vunderink and Mark Boon to join forces and fire up the old diesel. This means that the two original lead singers/guitarists/composers responsible for Sausalito Summernight and two thirds of the songs on Diesel’s debut album Watts in the Tank, are on board again.
For a sound and solid stage performance, Rob and Mark have called upon three seasoned rockers.
The Diesel lineup is:
Mark Boon, guitar & vocals
Dave Bordeaux, bass & vocals
René Meister, keyboards & vocals
Ron van Elswijk, drums
Rob Vunderink, guitar & vocals
Manager: Peter Nelissen, BAFMusic.
Dave Bordeaux is a former member of the The Hague based rock band Billy the Kid, René Meister played in Het Goede Doel and wrote the #1 hit single Zelfs je naam is mooi. Ron van Elswijk has hos own drum school and is a relentless powerhouse whose talent will no longer go unnoticed.
