Introducing to you… The 2930s
Tell Me I'm Crazy!
As the bassist of Berliner country rockers The BossHoss, Guss Brooks has had more than
a decades experience with one of the most successful German groups of all time.
Numerous gold and platinum selling albums, like 2015's Number 1 "Dos Bros", led to sold-
out headlining tours including highly acclaimed shows at Rock am Ring, Wacken and
international festivals such as the UK's Download Festival and Australia's Soundwave
The BossHoss have developed an enthusiastic audience of millions world wide. These
priceless experiences now feed into the work with his side project, The 2930s.
The 2930s, and for sure with it's unusual band name, may when you first listen, inspire
images of shiny Cadillac's at an American Diner, with slicked back pomade hair, a vintage
jukebox in the corner with the sounds of rock and roll heroes like Elvis, John Lee Hooker
and Jimi Hendrix. One may also envisage immortal rock heroes AC/DC, The Rolling Stones
The 2930s were founded in 2009, with their name being derived from the time of the very
first live appearance of Guss Brooks and the Australian guitarist singer/songwriter The
Josh. Recently the trio has been complemented by Steffen "The Tide" Theide on drums, in
the party-proven trio format. Together their diverse influences focus on a highly explosive
signature sound somewhere between indie, punk rock, garage and 60's elements.
Heartache, despair and burning passion - these topics pack The 2930s records with
crunching guitar riffs, driving bass lines and instantly catchy melodies and charismatic
vocals from front man The Josh.
With the 2014 debut album "Reaching The Highs / Touching The Lows" The 2930s have
built a loyal fan base and 2 years later with their second release "Tell Me I'm Crazy" on
Internashville Recordings, The 2930s have further developed their sound and connection
with their fans.
Various support shows for The BossHoss, Danko Jones, Triggerfinger, The Graveltones
and The Sonics have helped cement their fan base. Flat-out performances at festivals like
Rock im Park, Roadrunners Race 61, Blank It Open Air and this year's Kieler Woche have
strengthened The 2930s reputation as a gripping and energetic live band.
The 2930s power through to absolute exhaustion on and off the stage with their
contagious high-energy set of audience favorites like "Burn", "Do You Believe In Love",
"Real Wild Child" and "The Ride ", that are supplemented by a few select covers in typical
The 2930s style.
The 2930s high energy rock will see you returning again and again for performances that
include healthy doses of self-irony with classy stage outfits in their distinctive energetic
