The summer is almost ending, but nevertheless it’s not too late to throw a Rockabilly party in your own backyard. What do you need?
Most important thing of course is the music: band, DJ, records; all depending on your budget.
It’s nice to decorate your garden with umbrellas, lights, torches and a tiki-bar.
And what should not be missing in this bar? Quite right! A real Rockabilly Juice.

Ingredients: (2 cocktails)

Photographer showcase: Jo Vallianatou

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 22 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 185 views

Photographer Jo Vallianatou was born in early 90’s. She studied photography and painting at Vivarte school of applied arts.
Jo: As a photographer i love the “alternative” style. Why I love 50’s?? Because it was a post war area full of optimism, beacause of the dresses and make-up! Of course because of Elvis and Hitchcock movies. Oh because of a 52’s Cadilac Sedan that I’m in love with. And finally I love 50’s because of the hair that Audrey Hepburn had and of course the “new look” of Christian Dior.

The 24th Street Wailers

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 17 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 152 views

24streetwhere are you from? We are from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
How and when did you start?  We started after meeting in music school and having a mutual love of blues and 50’s Rock n Roll.  I was glad to find 4 people to start a band with and not just have a backing group.  Each member, Emily Burgess-Guitar, Jon Wong-Tenor Sax, Jesse Whiteley-Piano and Michael Archer-Bass are talented and a feature in their own right.  
Describe your music style?  We are a 50’s RnB band.  

How did your love for this music start, which age, which artist?  I’ve always loved music, of all kinds, for as long as I can remember but when it comes to 50’s RnB I would have to say that Little Richard was the first to really move me.  I would have been around 10 years old then.  
Who did influence you?  My influences are very eclectic, however my main influences when it comes to the world of R n B would have to be Little Willie John,  Mickey Baker, Little Richard, and most importantly Nick Curran.  He was a great singer, guitarist and drummer.  He really brought this music forward for a whole new generation to hear and see.


Do you write your own songs?  Yes I write the songs, along with Emily the guitar player, we play a few covers but the lions share of the music is original. 

If so, where do you get your inspiration? Real life, or total fantasy.  I would say my song content comes very much from real life,  Emily on the other hand likes to mix some fantasy in with hers.  
Do you write together? We have in the last year begun to write together but up until this point the  song writing was very separate and we’d bring them in when either Emily or I was done with them.  Now we’re a bit more open to writing with each other. 

(Tell us about your latest cd)

69Beavershot Baroeg

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 3 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 234 views

IMG_0133After a couple of silent years 69 Beavershot played at the the Scum Bash festival earlier this year. They kinda picked up performing again, with drummer Rene. In July they were sharing stage with Bob Wayne, at the Baroeg. A dark and little venue in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Mostly alternative bands play there. Mostly hardrock, metal, but gradually Psychobilly, hillbilly is setteling at the Baroeg.
Guitar player Robert always has this great style of playing, inspired by Brian setzer, Scotty More, James Burton. His growling voice is just right for their kind of rough rockabilly. All their songs have titles you can easily sing and shout along with, like, red headed woman (my favorite although I’m not a red head), hell cat and speed track. 69Beavershot played their own originals as well as some covers. While guys sang along especially woman danced exotically in front of the stage. Is it because of their music or are they hoping Robert is giving them the eye?

Exciting news, reviews and interviews on rockabilly online

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 31 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 234 views

20140829_163913It’s been a long time since we reviewed albums, due to the big amount of albums offered and lack of enough reviewers , time and energy. But after a summer holiday well spent we are back on our feet again. I was going through 400 emails from all around the world! I answered 200 (the other half was spam) so now we got some great interviews coming up, fantastic pinup pictures of photographers and ofcourse album reviews.

To name a few: Four Star Combo, The Rockats, Kyle Esplin, Marco Di Maggio, The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns and ….. Reverend Horton Heat!
Did I mention Brian Setzer? Brian’s new album is coming up too!

To the artists who request a review, we only accept the physical albums, no downloads please, because our reviewers want to review the whole production. And be patient, we really do get a lot of emails and albums daily.

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers interview

Picture by Joshua Black Wilkins

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers started out as just the Dirt Daubers, an old-timey trio from Kentucky. However, we “went electric” over a year ago and started playing more blues and rockabilly. There’s a lot of old Chess era R&B in what we do too.

I have loved blues music since I was in my mid teens. I love the music of Muddy Waters, Magic Sam and Little Walter. I later discovered rockabilly guys like Charlie Feathers and Dex Romweber. Mojo Nixon, Jim Heath and other edgy modern guys made the music real to me. I draw inspiration from my home town, which is in the South and not far from where the blues and rockabilly were both born. I also still have a passion for Kentucky mountain music. Remember, you can’t have rockabilly without the “hillbilly” component.

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 25 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 265 views

New PictureIf you ever happened to visit Camperdown, you might notice a stylish young woman who seems to be walking the streets of a different era. That’s Jo Williams…she loves everything vintage and wears it every day.

It doesn’t stop there though. Jo not only walks the walk, she dances the dance and has even competed in a rockabilly pin-up competition.

For a rock ‘n’ rollin’ trip back to the 50s, and to find out what makes this country girl so passionate about a time gone by, watch this four-minute film.
