WHAT MAKES ZE GRAN ZEFT UNIQUE?
Years ago, the alternative music scene was a key genre in the music industry, with a very “colorful” music scene. The main goal was, that these bands were danceable and did hard music (RATM, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BEASTIE BOYS, etc.). In the last couple of years most of the alternative music was not really groovy and the songs couldn´t be used for the club scene, which is an important promotion tool. As music mags don’t sell really well in these days, the club scene is more important than ever. ZE GRAN ZEFT is jumping in these footsteps. The band is doing a fresh sound based on the songwriting of the early days of alternative rock. A mixture of metal, hip hop and electronic music.

ZE GRAN ZEFT KEY ARTIST DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY:
Our main target is to create a live-monster!
Today it is very important that bands doing something unique can be the outfit, THE music. Don’t swim with the waves. Especially as a European rock band you have to be “dangerous” and surprise people, being different without copying US acts.
ZE GRAN ZEFT are great songwriters, their front man Boots is a fantastic singer and entertainer! The band is aggressive on stage and knows how important a good live show is.
For this reason, we`ll build up the band via the live-activities.
For the first step we concentrate on France and Germany!
First festivals in Germany are already booked: ZE GRAN ZEFT is confirmed for WITH FULL FORCE and RELOAD FESTIVAL, two key-festivals in the German festival market. They will also play in France at PLANER FESTIVAL in Lyon (FR).
Actually the festivals are promoting ZE GRAN ZEFT as the “secret tip” from France!
Starting live activities in the German market with these two festivals give us the possibility to present ZE GRAN ZEFT to a big German audience.
