De3W is a one-man band, playing themes from TV series and movies on all kinds of instruments. Behind this band is Wiechert who is also the frontman of the band.
He is 43-years-old and currently he is living in Hoofddorp, which is a town near Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
For Dire Straits Blog, he has shared some interesting things about his band. “Music is just my hobby, but also I play in some bands around. I have learned to play in some music instruments by myself 25-years-ago,” he said.
Wiechert has lucky to learn to play various instruments such as acoustic guitar, mandolin-banjo, saxophone, and many other instruments.
On his YouTube channel, you can find a lot of interesting music videos from some of the greatest classic songs. The list includes songs such as: “Brothers in Arms,” “Hotel California,” “Imagine,” “Stand by Me,” “Englishman in New York,” and many more.
“In my spare time, I just want to make music videos and to drink a few beers with friends. I listen to a lot of jazz and movie soundtracks, but I also like metal, punk, and bluegrass. My father is a fan of Dire Straits, so I listen to them all my life. I think “Money for Nothing” was the first song that I heard,” he added.
Take a look at his “Brothers in Arms” video version played on mandolin-banjo and harmonica. The video is uploaded on YouTube in February 2019.
