CD " Live". Aka Cuby & the Blizzard, Harry Muskee Band, Muskee's Gang, and here simply as "Muskee".
In 1980, Harry started playing with pick-up bands under the name The Muskee Gang. Former C+B members Eelco Gelling, Hans Lafaille (dr, ex-Sweet d'Buster), Herman Deinum, Ruud van Dijk (s, ex-Flash & Dance Band and Farrago) and Bas Munniksma (s, ex-Human Orchestra) were all members that year as were Jan Holder (tr) and Cees v.d. Laarse (b, ex-Jan Akkerman, to Tao).
When Eelco Gelling permanently joined The Freelance Band, Harry Muskee assembled the following touring band: Hans Lafaille (dr), Lou Leeuw (b), Paul Smeenk (g, ex-Sweet d'Buster), Ruud van Dijk (s) and Jeff Reynolds (tr). The latter tragically died in a traffic accident while touring with the band and was replaced by Peter Kuyt (ex-Massada). The band released the album “The Legend” (dominated by Smeenk’s funky songs) with an accompanying TV documentary.
When in 1984 first Paul Smeenk (who left the music business) and then Hans Lafaille and Lou Leeuw quit, Harry Muskee decided to drop the horn section and get in new musicians. The Gang was joined by Gino Jansen (b, ex-Fox the Fox), Gert-Jan de Valk (d), replaced by Hannes Langkamp (also ex-Fox the Fox), and David Gardeur (kb). The shock surprise was that Eelco Gelling returned to the fold. In 1985, they added Melle-Jan Kleinsma as second guitarist. During the recordings of “Rimshots In The Dark” in the Spring of 1986, Gelling and Kleinsma were fired because of substance abuse in the studio. They then formed The Blues Connection. This was the end of the 25-year collaboration between Muskee and Gelling. Erwin Java (ex-Wild Honey and Wild Romance) was called in as a stand-in, but he has stayed with Harry Muskee to this day. In 1990, the band name was shortened to Muskee with Harry, Erwin, Gino, Hannes and Roy Kushel (kb). The CD "Live" and "Cut de luxe" was released, from which the single “Brother Booze” got a lot of airplay.
