"The Loop" is a 100 % Rory Gallagher Tribute Band named after a famous instrumental song of Rory Gallagher,
Like it used to be Rory Gallagher's style, the music is played very dynamically and depends mostly on the interaction between the band and the audience. Every gig is a unique event. You will enjoy the playing of "The Loop" best with a certain degree of loudness. Anyway, if necessary "The Loop" is able to play at a lower volume level.
Volkhard Schuster & The Rhythm Rescue Unit Volkhard Schuster & The Rhythm Rescue Unit exists since 2013. They play original songs from Volkhard Schuster and Michael Welzel including some Blues-/Bluesrock-Covers. And for all lovers of The Loop: some Rory Gallagher songs. The Line-Up is the same as The Loop. So you can expect the same kind of powerful music.
Fall Apart Fall Apart consist of Stefan Kugler (bass, formerly Remember Rory), Anselm Gayer (drums, Remember Rory) or Markus Vorderer(drums) and Volkhard Schuster (vocals, guitar). Once or twice a year they come together to play a Rory Gallagher-Tribute. - Just for fun!

"Die Musik von Rory Gallagher hat sich die Göttinger Formation The Loop auf die Fahne geschrieben. Benannt nach einem Song von Gallagher, werden dessen Songs auf "Had a good time" allerdings nicht platt nachgespielt. Vielmehr besteht das Programm nahezu ausnahmslos aus Nummern von Volkhard Schuster (voc, guit), der sich lediglich am Vorbild orientiert (und dem sogar ähnlich sieht!). Musikalisch geht das Konzept durchaus auf." (Source: bluesnews, Nr. 37, S. 50, April 2004)
