Shaking Bones “Gimme some more”

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 16 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 145 views

artworks-000116278692-a5lqww-t500x500Shaking Bones are a neo rockabilly trio based in London. They recently released their last EP  “Gimme Some More” produced by Rolling Records. I listened to their title song on soundcloud and it sounded very good to me. I like the rhythm and blues influences with the harmonica mixed with rockabilly, so let’s see what this band is all about.

Tell us about the band

Shaking Bones were formed in London in 2014 when Luca Scaggiante met Loris Peverani at Tech Music School. Initially the band was a rockabilly/swing duo (drums, guit/vocals), then the two came across Garry Tyrrell Lynch, slapping double bass player, and began gigging all over the place as a more-aggressive trio.

Dees Honeytones with Cruisers Rock and Roll club Organizer Cederic.

It was an honor to be invited to play on the big 10th anniversary party of The Cruisers Rock and Roll club in Vlamertinge Belgium.

Vaudezilla! presents: Shimmy& Swing Chicago! November 18th

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 10 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 84 views

anniekeithVaudezilla was born in 2008 when solo Chicago burlesque performer Red Hot Annie teamed up with Keith Emroll (aka Dick Dijon) to put their more than 20 years of combined theatrical production experience to work producing burlesque shows. Since then, they have injected a consistent display of vitality and originality that plays a key role in Chicago’s visibility on the national burlesque map.

Ghost Surf Meets The Rapiers

Posted by Rocky On November - 7 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 268 views

It doesn’t happen very often that a band surprises me for a second time around. But The Surfaders did it! Remember the article I wrote a while back ago about their first cd? It happens that i saw them a year later, at the Driveinn Barn. There I saw Stephen(guitarplayer at The Surfaders) again, and he told me about the new cd, and made me curious. He told me that the rockabillytracks were lost in translation, but the plan of vocals was still active. It would be the first performance with voice. I was most impressed! Title of this cd is A Greater Silence, being a spoof of the movie The Great Silence, a spaghettiwestern from 1968.

At the releaseparty

Spaghettiwestern seems to be a big theme on this album. There are a lot of cowboysongs on it, but the biggest treat is the fact that they added vocals to the mix! This album has a darker twist to it, more like the tracks of Zombie Ghost Train mixed with the sound of the Shadows or The Rapiers.

Night out at Burlesque Kingdom

2015 burlesque Kingdom (5)

Fay Loren

Burlesque Kingdom​ is one of my favorite spots for a night out. Live music and beautiful dancers in an area my daddy forbid me to go to: the Red Light district in Amsterdam! The best thing tonight is I got to play there with my band Dee Ann and the Nightcaptains.

It’s a small but cosy nightclub, where tourists and locals come for a drink and a curious peek into the world of Burlesque. Fay Loren is a burlesque dancer and the organizer of this Burlesque event. Twice a month on a Friday she invites a local and an international dancer to dance with her on the small red curtain stage. A band and a d.j. fill the evening with great music and presenter strings all the entertainment together.

Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones

Posted by drew On September - 25 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 456 views

lara hope (1)Lara Hope and the Ark-tones are hell raisin’ hepcats from the Hudson Valley. My lovely wife very wisely brought me to one of their Austin shows this last winter and I was charmed not only by their rock solid mixture of classic rockabilly and roots rock sounds, but their extremely energetic live show. Naturally the next chance I got, I set up an interview!

First off, tell us about yourself and the history of the band?

Lara Hope has played in numerous bands over the years. Lara Hope and the Champtones was her first rockabilly endeavor. After Matt’s band, the Arkhams (an internationally recognized Psychobilly band) backed her up for a summer of shows, the band became Lara Hope and the Ark-tones, as her previous collaborator, Jeff Kadlic, who builds custom Telecaster style guitars under the name “champtone guitars” parted. The one and only “Tiger Piss”, Lara’s punk N Roll band (where she plays bass and sings) is still active after 8+ years.

Stray Cats, Live at Rockpalast

Stray Cats

Stray Cats

Stray Cats “live at rockpalast- 1983 lorely open air dvd + 1981 Cologne ( cd).
Rockpalast a great german tv concert series that captured all the great acts live while playing in Germany.
Remember taping this performance to vhs?
Now it’s out on dvd and cd ( a performance from two years earlier in Cologne).
The Stray Cats at their prime, a rockabilly trio at full force.
Story goes they where mocked because they only had a small stand up drum kit, one guitar amp and a double bass.
At the time walls off marshall amps where all they rage ( I believe they still are).
They blew the audience away nevertheless.

As a bonus also a live cd from a show ” the cats ” did in 1981 in Cologne.

Brian Setzer “rockabilly riot” all original

Posted by Mars On August - 17 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 748 views

Better late then never.
What to write about another Brian Setzer album?
The man has been relasing great albums for years.
After hearing the first track (let’s shake) of the album fear took over as this reviewer thaught Brian sold his soul to the devil but after hearing the rest of the album my mind was put at easy, the album is kick ass and sees mr Setzer in tip top shape with his timeless twang and rockabilly sounds, backed by Mark Winchester on bass ( good to see he’s back), Noah Levy on drums and Kevin McKendree on piano the band sounds fresh and lays down 12 original songs.
One album that can’t be missed in one’s collection.

My name is Miss Bella D’Vine,a 38 years old Dutch Pinup.
As a little girl,I had two dreams: marrying Elvis Presley,and becoming a Pinup. Well,needless to say,that Elvis part didn’t work out ;-). But I’m very proud that the Pinup dream came true,that’s what I answer when people ask me about my style,and why I’m wearing retro clothes; I’m living my Pinup dream.
I love listening to country music and of course Johnny Cash (I’m a huge fan).
It would be such an honour to become Pinup of the week :-)

My workstation last Saturday

I woke up last Sunday, havin’ a hangover from the birthday party the day before. The sun was shining, early in the morning, and i remembered something the bass player of Liptease and the Backstreet Crackbangers (Liptease) told me. They were supposed to play on the cape, here in my hometown, during World Port Classics. I’d spinned the wax there the day before. So I decided to first eat something and comb my quiff before checking them out.

This band, going on for six years now, became extra popular with the dutch show Hollands Got Talent, becoming a good

Pinup of the week: Debbie

Posted by Dee-Ann On May - 18 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 911 views

Picture by Alex Duijvelaar

Hi guys and dolls,
My name is Debbie, 23 years.
And I live together with my boyfriend and dog in a small village in Brabant.
My love for pin-up, vintage and retro started a few years ago. In my teenage years I dressed like a Goth, I was insecure and bullied a lot so I tried to hide my body underneath oversized black clothing.
Since four years I’m comfortable in my skin, and I feel nice dressing up.

Like a lot of other girls I’m very fascinated by the movies Grease and Cry baby.
My style inspiration comes from a lot of beautiful women: Marilyn Monroe, Dita von Teese and Annika Strandberg.
I had my first pin-up shoot last week, March 22. I had so much fun, and I would love to do this more often! It is a great way to feel confident, so I recommend it to all other women.
If you want to see more of me, then please follow me on:

xx Debbie
