T.A.C.E. Project (form.: The Andrzej Citowicz Experience) is an international band project that was originally founded in 2012 by Andrzej Citowicz (egypt) and Dirk Arnicke (germany).
Influenced by rock music from the late 70ies to the 90ies they found their own style through the unique, guitar based compositions of Andrzej Citowicz and Dirk Arnicke.
The solid base comes from the basstracks of Patryk Szymanski (poland).
Drums, keys and mixing is done by Dirk Arnicke (germany).
With the vocalist and lyricist Oliver Monsieur (germany), they released an EP called Jack Of Hearts in 2015.
After that the project was closed in June 2015.
In January 2018 they re-started the project, thanks to the vocalist Mike Gerhold who joined it.
Born in Wolfhagen, Germany, in 1975, the singer Mike Gerhold is a well-known representative of the North Hessen music scene. He has more than twentyfive years of stage experience under his belt, having earned his chops in German bands such as Dirty Minds, Steven Stealer or actually Rockhead as well as solo. He also opened the concerts for big Rock and Metal acts, ranging from the Sweet, Slade, Barclay James Harvest to Doro Pesch and Saxon.
In recent years, he contributed background vocals to Bonfire’s 2017 release ‘Byte The Bullet’ and in 2018 ´Temple of Lies´ alongside the Italian singer, keyboard player and producer Alessandro Del Vecchio and Rainbow Keyboarder Paul Morris.
