Jurgen de Poorter is "The WizKid"
My first introduction to the guitar was at primary school. There I learned to make music during the afternoon-break for the first time.
In the following years I had both: lessons in/on the classical guitar and modern guitar (light music), both acoustic and electric. In high school I played in several school bands, in which I’ve experienced a lot of cool things like playing as a support act for “Normaal” (a Dutch folk band) during their H.A.L.V.U. tour.
After my school period I’ve ofcourse continued to play in different bands. This musical journey took me along bands like: Need, Red Label, Unit Five & In Pursuit and now The Carol Lyne Band.
Because I’m working in the IT industry I quickly got the nickname “The Wizkid”. Over the years I have extended this nickname into my music & performing life. My instruments have no secrets for me anymore.
Because of my passion for making music and entertainment The Carol Lyne band came along. We bring a surprising mix of “All kinds of rock.” I invite you all to experience our music one day!
