Hallo Venray is Henk Koorn, Henk Jonkers, and Peter Konings.
Formed in 1985, the original members were influenced by bands like Butthole Surfers, Dinosaur Jr. and The Div. Yet it wasn't until 1992 that Hallo Venray really broke through, with the release of their third album, The More I Laugh, The Hornier Due Gets, as well many successful shows throughout the Netherlands, including a performance at Pinkpop.
Over the last 25 years, the band has continued to evolve; the line-up's been adjusted, some albums were received better than others. But the dynamic innovation and true musical craftsmanship that has always pulsed through Hallo Venray has remained.
The band released their 13th album, Show, last March on Excelsior Recordings, and will be touring the Netherlands this spring.
