Rock And Roll Star - Champagne

The members of the band Champagne were brought together by producer Martin Duiser in October 1976. Trudy Schell, Bert van der Wiel, Jan Vredenburg and Paulette Bronkhorst recorded their debut single 'Rock and Roll Star' that month, written by Duiser with ex-Outsiders singer Wally Tax. The single reached the Dutch Top 40 in December 1976 and reached number 2 the following year. Subsequent singles all failed to match this level of success.

The band stayed together for five years before disbanding in 1981. Bronkhorst released 2 singles with another female singer as the duo Chica and Vredenburg made a single in 1981 with the group Shampoo.
