About us

It was fifty years ago today
the three brothers started a band to play
They’ve been going in and out of style
But they’re guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you:
“Appleton” is here for you!

So please listen and enjoy!


In 1967, the brothers John (piano), Chris (bass) and Stephen (drums) started our band Appleton with Werner Seifert (guitar). We were playing and practicing our favorite songs from the Beatles, the Beachboys, Santana and many others. All our own interpretation, based on Blues, Rock and Fusion.

In 1971, Harry joined the band playing the guitar after Werner had left.

1998 we started the Appleton resurrection.

Having a lot of fun, we decided to extend the Band with a professional horn section and a female singer. Chris Perschke (trombone) Karen Schäfer (sax), Thomas Siffling (trumpet) and Barbara Drennan (vocals) joined the Band.

Together we recorded 5 CD´s during the past years.
