About the bands:
THE RAPIERS (UK) – champions of early ‘60s rock’n’roll!
Being on the way for Rock’n’Roll for more than 25
years, the Englishmen resurrect stylishly the authentic 60's sound
of the English pre-Beatles UK Beat & Instrumental era: THE SHADOWS,
JOHNNY KIDD AND THE PIRATES, FENTONES and COUGARS. Whether
Merseybeat, Instrumentals, Twist or Rhythm & Blues – band leader
Colin Pryce-Jones and his men will take you back into a time, when
Red Fender Guitars, Meazzi Echo and Vox Amps ruled the world and
musicians were really able to play their instruments.
Titty Twisters Orchestra (IT) - DRUNKEN-FRAT-ROCK’N’ROLL in a Tuxedo
10 Italian playboys, who are known to have a tendency
for popular 50’s/60’s music as well as having a weakness for smart
suits, sexy girls, rackety parties and alkoholic drinks. And so the
favourite subjects of the TITTY TWISTERS ORCHESTRA - Pin-Ups,
GoGo-Dancing & Exotica – can be found in their glamorous Burlesque-
and Belly-Dance-Show too, accompanied with tones of the TWIST-O-RAMA
SOUND, a mixture out of crazed guitars, lascivious saxophone and
X-rated lyrics. The Titty Twisters have already proved their
predilections in legendary Italian Rock’n’Roll-Bands like MORTICIA’S
LOVERS, LINK QUARTET, KIM’S TEDDY BEAR and HERMITS.
“Deluxe Lingerie Only… Please“.
Bee Dee Kay & The Roller Coaster (F) – SEXEDELIC & EXOTIC ROCK 'N'
From Bourbon Hop over the Sin Alley – the universe of
BEE DEE KAY & THE ROLLER COASTER is full of trashy pictures of the
late 50's and early 60's. Sleazy Garage, Surf, Soul & R’n’B are
mixed up with a strong lacing of Jungle Exotica. The five ROLLER
COASTER caused an uproar already in such combos like KING KHAN & THE
SHRINES, DEE CATS, BLUE DEVILS, VIBRAFINGERS, REVENANTS, BABY FACE
COMBO, BEACHBREAKERS and MOTORBOOTY and the bizarrely crazy
performance of the front man BEE DEE KAY gives the freaky Frenchmen
the necessary decadent elements. Lowdown & dirty!
und die Sauerkrauts (USA/F) –All-Star Blitzbeat Invasion!
In utmost secrecy Cecilia, Russel, Ryan, Fredovitch
and Fred (aka Gertrude, Rudolph, Reinhardt, Herman and Fritz)
rehearse in US in order to present their terrific, smart and as well
humorous as well as charming 60's Beat for the very first time in
front of an audience on the SOUNDFLAT RECORDS BALLROOM BASH Vol. 2.
They played undercover before in the most different
Yankee- and frogbands and still do. These are bands like THE
NO-TALENTS, CECILILA ET SES ENNUIS, OPERATION S, THE MUMMIES, THE
FLAKES, THE BOBBYTEENS, DUKES OF HAMBURG, THE EPOXIES, THE HERO-X,
KING KHAN AND HIS SHRINES, LES TERRIBLES... and so on!!!
This ALL-STAR Band truly performs an outstanding,
smart and both humorous and charming 60's Beat, which is second to
The Imperial Surfers +
Special Guest RAFAEL
GARCIA (ESP) – Do the
The ultimate Frat- and Twist-Combo from Madrid. Oky
Von Stoky, Esteban Beatboy and Mike Von Clubman already made their
experiences in the Spain R’n’R- and Garage-Scene as members of LOS
NITROS, THE GOLDEN ZOMBIES and TUNA TACOS. However, the matchless
instrumental sound of the IMPERIAL SURFERS got complete not before
2006 when the saxophonist Javi Hustler (ex THE HUSTLERS) arrives.
Their mix of wild 50’s Instrumental-R’n’R and magnificent 60’s
Twist-, Frat- and Surf-Sounds might not only delight the fans of the
Las Vegas Grind-Compilations.
The Waistcoats (NL) - awesome nederbeat 60’s mayhem!
Since the first days of THE KLIEK no
further Dutch band was able to celebrate the 60’s beat of THE KINKS,
THE WHO or THE HOLLIES so authentic. Anyway, also American Garage,
Surf- and Soul traditions find their way in the sound of the
WAISTCOATS. There is no doubt, that Jan Herman Veldkamp, Gerard
Burger & Jack Outhuis got inspired by combos wie THE POETS or THE
GAME. And so psychedelic parts are attended by R’n’B-Sound of the
60's. Fans of the KAISERS, GREEN HORNETS and CYBERMEN definitively
get their money's worth.
THE MONTESAS (GER) – Hully Gully & Beat ‘n’ Roll Hipsters
Whether Beat, R’n’R, Hully Gully, Shake or a lacing
of Shimmy, the MONTESAS with support of the MONTESITAS know how to
enravish and push their audience. With a heavy load of Ye-Ye, the
stylish and authentic MONTESAS lead the Hully Gully-Youth and their
not only 60’s Garage-following.
