Markus Pajakkala Von Hertzen Brothers
We are proud to present ”VHB Mk5”:
Mikko – vocals, guitars, etc
Kie – guitars, vocals, etc
Jonne – bass, vocals, etc
Sami – drums, etc
Markus Pajakkala – keys, woodwinds, percussion, vocals, etc
We are extremely excited to inform you guys that a good friend (and a legend in his own right), Markus Pajakkala, will be joining our band as a full member from today onwards. You must know him from his contribution to our latest album, Red Alert in the Blue Forest, on which he played saxophones and flute on many of the songs…
And to answer your question: Yes, the 🎷solo in Peace Patrol is his doing. 💪🏼✨🏆
The first time we bumped into his many talents was in the year 2019 when he was touring with Sami in Elli Haloo’s solo project, Ellips. We paid careful attention to his skills already back then and as they say, “one thing led to another”.
We recruited him to play on our Acoustic (enough) Tour in 2023 and realised that his multi-instrumentalistic nature fitted the band really well. He smoothly got accustomed to our vision of the band and tuned in effortlessly. 😌
Without further ado, let’s all welcome Markus (almost Magnus) in our ranks!”🥳🙏🏼🍾🥂
