Heinz Robertz (Vox, Guitar)



The front man was born '51 and he is originated in the Aachen area. It was 1968 when he played on stage for the first time with a rock band (so called "beat band" at that time). In the following years he quit the mainstream and turned to blues. In favour of his occupational development he kept abstinence from public performances for as long as 20 years. It was not before 1995 that he began once more and built up Tres Hombres consequently. Heinz loves the original R&B of the Stones, Jimmy Hendrix and he is especially a fan of Peter Green, the ex Mayall guitar player and frontmann of Fleetwood Mac.



Christoph Orthner (Bass)



The man playing the fat strings was born '50. At the age of 18 he was standing with his bass on a stage for the first time in the city of Bonn. He played Jazzrock, a totally new style of music at that time. After a break for professional and family reasons music fascinated him again in 1995. Situated in Aachen meanwhile, Christoph played in different Blues formations and Big Bands. His favourite music remained Jazzrock besides Blues and Latin. His idols as a bass player are Jaco Pastorius, Victor Bailey and Jack Bruce. 2011 he joined the Hombres.



Hans Fischer (Drums)



The master of drums and cymbals was born in '43. In the nineteen sixties' years he played his first performances in Dixie and Rock Bands in the Aachen scene and he even played in the famous Star Club of Hamburg. Later he turned to Jazz and Jazzrock and played with Kurt Edelhagen's WDR Big Band and in several formations of its surroundings, i.a. with the sax player Heiner Wiberny. He was busy in different Big bands, smaller Jazzbands and in a Gala Band. His idols are Steve Gadd and Ginger Baker. Since 2010 he is stirring his sticks with the hombres.
