Guest stars

Live The Auratones have worked with great guest stars such as altosax virtuoso Candy Dulfer, trumpet wizzards Gerard Presencer and Eric Vloeimans as well as vocalists Berget Lewis and Boris.

On their fourth album "A Cool danceable Adventure" Gerald Presencer is a guest soloist. Vocal, flute and hammond organ virtuoso Thijs van Leer and his daughter, vocalist, Berenice van Leer feature on their fifth album "The Adventure Continues".
