In the early eighties The Police was the most popular band in the world. With a revolutionary vision on pop and punk, melody and rhythm Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland conquered the world in an instant.

 

Everybody who was a teenager in the early eighties remembers the huge impact of their first records, Outlandos d'Amour, Regatta de Blanc and those impressive first singles;  Roxanne, Can't Stand Losing You, So Lonely, Message in a Bottle and so on..

 

It is now more than ten years ago that The Police finished their 2007/2008 'reunion tour'. Tributeband The Policed brings now that energy, musicality and dynamic back on the stage. Three fans, three musicians, let us introduce them to you: 

BARTH THE KLERK

// guitar, Moog & vocals

 

Brilliant musician and guitar player. Plays at top level for most of his live. Former Van Katoen, The President. Is guitar player of Rock 'n Roll Junkies and now also The Policed. Plays and sounds like Andy, and that is not easy. Extra footwork - just like The Police- to play the Moog Taurus bass synth, so with your eyes closed you will hear the original sound of The Police. 

ANTON AREMA

// bass & lead vocals

 

Two professional music educations, a voice like a nightingale and about 171 years of stage experience make Anton Arema the perfect ‘Sting’ for The Policed. The only singer in Europe who reaches Sting’s high notes every single time. Anton is quite busy as an artist, but The Policed is his most favorite gig. He is doing the impossible… and now with the Policed.

KEES DE JONG

// drums (and occasionally vocals)

 

Likes a challenge. The drum parts of Stewart Copeland dominate for a great part the sound of The Police. They are complicated, syncopic-ally surprising, but most of all, energizing and spectacular creative. Tough job for Kees. But he is 'coping' and comes pretty close to the original drumming of his big example. He plays on one of the 50 original 'Stewart Copeland Reunion Tour' kits, that helps with the sound.. and looks.
