I’m Alan Luring drummer of The Tightropes. I’m playing on a Ludwig classic maple set now for one year and fell in love with it. This year (2014) is my third year that i’m playing with The Tightropes. Together with Marco Boers and Daniel Cats we formed the band. 2012 and 2013 together generated 150 gigs for us. We played Eurosonic Noorderslag in 2013 and 2014, did the Popronde in 2013, played at 3FM several times. We’re currently writing our debut album, which will be ready in fall 2014. Before I was playing the drums I played in a marching band for a couple of years. Then started with playing the drums in different bands, sessions and also orchestras. After playing in different groups I found out that my heart lays in playing with good musical friends in a band. This resulted in the formation of The Tightropes.
