Jari Tiura

jari_tiura_promoI have had the opportunity from time to time to work with the great singer Jari Tiura (Stargazery, ex. Michael Schenker Group) in different projects.

Jari Tiura & the West Coast Gang
Following selected musicians joined their forces for a couple of gigs in the summer of 2012 under the tour name “A Tribute To 80’s Metal”. The mini tour was dedicated to 80’s metal but of course we had thrown in a couple of songs from the 70’s also. We had a rocking time with lots of fun. We hope the audience also did feel our passion for the music. Jari Tiura (Stargazery, ex. Michael Schenker Group) – vocals, Henric Blomqvist (Solid Faces) – guitars, Sven Wannäs (Solid Faces) – Hammond and keyboards, Marko Pukkila (Altaria) – bass, Calle Fahllund (Sturm und Drang) – drums.

Solid Faces new lineup. July 4, 2010

There has been a change in lead vocals.

In July 3 Marko officially announced the band members that he was leaving the band.

Sven contacted his old friend and vocalist Johan Mattjus (Stormwing, Altaria) to join forces. Johan decided to join the band with this very short notice July 4.

A new chapter has begun and Solid Faces welcomes Johan as the new lead vocalist in the band!

“I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the time i had with you guys. It was VERY fun while it lasted and i will cherish it with me 4-ever. I wish you all the very best and i hope you will keep on rocking. You are all very good musicians and you will always have my deepest respect.” Marko

 Solid Faces also want to thank Marko for his time in the band and wish good luck to his future projects.

Doogie White

I did get the opportunity to be the keyboard player for the great singer and person Doogie White when he visited Finland in March and June 2009. Great experience and a memory for lifetime.

Again in 2014 we did have cooperation when worked on Henric Blomqvist & Friends album “All of Your Illusions”.

Backing up Doogie again live (live set of nine songs) at Purple Night 2015.

On tour with Doogie White’s White Noise (Finnish Chapter) in April 2018.

Doogie-1~Doogie White is one of the most talented and respected rock vocalists in the UK and beyond. His studio and live work with guitar and rock legends Ritchie Blackmore in Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen in Rising Force is well known and highly regarded by the fans and the bands alike. But there is much more to Doogie’s range and ability than just these two world-class gigs. Doogie tours or records constantly with a wide range of musicians from around the world playing festivals throughout the summer and club/concert dates in the winter. He has a number of solo projects underway as well as regular gigs and studio albums with his own band Cornerstone. He is a renowned session vocalist and has contributed to many well-known recordings and live performances including shows with Jon Lord and Ian Paice. He is currently on tour with Michael Schenker.
