The Belgian Tribute to Coldplay

Cute to Play :

Since 2012 CU2PLAY has grown out to be the leading U2 / Coldplay Tribute Band in Europe : not to be missed !

They invested a lot of time and effort in defragmentating their typical “wall of sound” and reconstructing it to detail (using the typical vintage sounds, using samples/intros … as used by the real thing). They gave a lot of attention to the visual aspect (stage outfits with typical accents) and adding extra elements (videoimages to the lightshow, identical instruments, …) in order to give spectators the visual recognition they look for when watching a tribute band.

With over 200 million albums sold and hundreds of concerts being sold out Coldplay and U2 are topclass rock giants. With about 20 of their top 10 hits on their playlist, CU2PLAY is quite sure of reaching out to a very wide audience with their shows : Where the streets have no name, Pride, Vertigo, Beautiful day, Elevation, Clocks, Viva La Vida, Violett hill, Speed of sound, Paradise, …

Stepping into their world was/is quite a challenge in every way… the appreciation by our audience our biggest reward.

Sander is a singer-songwriter. At an very early age he took music lessons and got a classical training solfeggio and percussion. With some private lesson and lot’s of self-study he became a fine guitar player.

At 16 he started writing songs … something he still does. He describes his music as unpretentious popmusic. In 2000 he got a record deal at RCP productions. It was the start of a long lasting collaboration.

Moreover it was Eric of RCP who saw the CU2PLAY add in 2012 and introduced Sander as the ideal frontman for the project.

Favourite U2 songs :
Magnificent 
Favourite Coldplay songs :

SANDER (vocals / acoustic guitar)

Franky is a “self-taught” musician. He picked up the guitar for the first time at the age of 18. By now he has over 20 years of experience on stage. 
He compensates the lack of theoretical background by selfstudy and practice.

As founding member of CU2PLAY he wanted (after 20 years in various coverbands) to do something quite unique as to stand out of the hundreds of other coverbands. 

Reconstructing in detail the very typical vintage guitarsound of (mainly) U2 and Coldplay armed with nothing but some guitars and a guitar effectprocessor was/is quite a challenge … but one that offered him hours of “tweaking-fun” : trail and error… but head high towards the rehearsal room and stage.

Favourite U2 songs :
The Fly, Even better than the real thing, Bullet the blue sky
Favourite Coldplay songs :
Violet Hill, 42, Fix You, Yellow

FRANKY (guitars / backing vocals)

Geert’s musical adventure started at the age of 12 when getting a guitar.

After having taken some guitar lessons, his attention was drawn towards the low notes. He started experimenting by tuning his guitar down by a full octave (???!!!…).

At the age of 15 he finally got his first real 4 string bassguitar.

Hardly one year later he bought his first “Farfisa” organ. That’s when he started taking some real music lessons on how to play the piano and organ. A few years later he started playing keyboards in various bands. In 1998 he joined coverband Wolfgang … Today he is still their keyboard player.

The bass guitar never really got out of his mind and about 10 years ago he bought a bass guitar to have some fun with at home. When he stumbled across the ad “looking for a bass player for a U2 & Coldplay tribute band” he picked up the phone rightaway. CU2PLAY had found the bassman they were looking for…

Favourite U2 songs :
New Year’s Day, The Unforgettable Fire, Vertigo
Favourite Coldplay songs :
Clocks, Violet Hill, Viva la Vida

GEERT (bass / backing vocals)

Marnix is the “hitman” of the band. In spite of his classical music training on piano and violin, he preferred to bang the drums instead.

Before joining the CU2PLAY, Marnix was the drummer in various coverbands. Being fascinated by the musical soul of U2, he wanted to join a U2 tribute band for a long time. Finding the right musical soulmates for such a project wasn’t that easy…until he crossed the path of Franky who was looking for a steady drummer to complete his tribute band.

He was very pleased with the wide agreement in the band on setting high standards on matters such as sound, technical approach, musicality and performance.

Favourite U2 songs :
With or without you, Elevation
Favourite Coldplay songs :
Yellow, Every teardrop is a waterfall

MARNIX (drums)

Rik is “the fifth member” … and not just our manager.   He joins the band on stage and is an excellent keyboardplayer / -programmer.
He studied music at the famous Lemmensinstitute and is a professional musician (he now teaches music and has various other projects next to CU2PLAY).

Favourite U2 songs :
Where the streets have no name
Favourite Coldplay songs :
Clocks, Viva la vida
