In 2002, they joined forces with DJ Ötzi to cover “Live Is Life“, originally by Opus. This single reached No. 2 in the French chart.
In their 25 year history, the band has released more than 25 albums and singles.
Originally there was a rule that every member who finished his studies at the University of Rotterdam had to leave the Hermes House Band. Then a successor was sought in each case for the instrument or vocals that had become vacant.
The “International” version of the band, however, refrained from recruiting solely from active students. Instead, former members now took over the permanency in the band, these included:
- Judith Ansems
- Jop Wijlacker
- Robin Maas
This ensured that they could also play international gigs and pursue their musical career full time. The lineup of the band includes significantly more musicians, such as drummer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, keyboardist.
