“The Amazing Insurance Salesmen” is a band lead by French man Zhang Si’an, with”Free the birds” drummer Maomao from China and bass player Maikel from Holland.
The band plays original experimental music and songs inspired by bands such as Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix and music genres like Jazz, Blues, Bossa nova, Fusion, Classical music etc… The band formed in the summer of 2009, when French singer Zhang Si’an was looking for a way to go back to rock music after ten years of playing folk music, chinese inspired folk songs and Jazz. He asked two of the best musicians in Beijing to join him in a journey to create a new experimental rock sound. The music of the band is very unique in Beijing. It flows between short melodic punk-rock songs and long instrumental guitar driven progressive rock improvisations sounding like David Gilmour and Carlos Santana. The band has and still is playing in Beijing’s most famous venues such as 2Kolegas, Mao livehouse, Yugongyishan, the What Bar, D22, Club 13 etc… The band also played in music festivals including the Beijing Haidian Park festival and the Beijing Nanluoguxiang festival.” The Amazing Insurance Salesmen” are currently recording their first demo, which should be available in a few months.
