Les Sauterelles (Switzerland)
This Band was founded in 1962. Soon they became the most popular Swiss Beat Band in the Sixties. In the hot summer of 68, their single “Heavenly Club” was #1 for 6 weeks in the Swiss Charts! ”Heavenly Club” was issued in many European Countries, in the US and Japan.
Les Sauterelles have appeared as a supporting act for the Rolling Stones, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, The Small Faces and they toured together with the Kinks. They performed in the famous Star Club in Hamburg and used to play in all the big Clubs in Switzerland. More than 350 concerts during the year was quite normal…
Today, Les Sauterelles are still on stage. After a temporary disbandment in 1970, the band was reunited again in 1993. Freddy Mangili and Peter Glanzmann joined their inseparable friends Toni Vescoli and Düde Dürst.
