3 Lost Maniacs @ Ace Cafe, Rumst 10/02/2008
Another Sunday night at the Ace Cafe. This time on stage: 3 Lost Maniacs.
Even tough at the beginning of the evening, well let’s say round 19h30 they’re weren’t a lot of people in the pub, round 20h30 the Ace had it’s usual vibe again, with more and more people dropping in. And to all of that weren’t there, you’re lose, cause this band was one of the best I’ve seen so far. You could really see that these guys, Big Bad Hono on guitar and vocals, Jack Fire on Upright bass, e bass and vocals, Loco on drums and vocals, have been playing together for quite sometime now, with all the energy and just plain old fun dripping of the stage.

Radio Modern, Mike Sanchez, Zaal Bart Merksem, 3 Februari 2008
The organization of these events has to be admired, cause when they do something, they do it well.
Rockabilly is very well loved in “de Kempen”, will Antwerp has more of a Jive thing going, Just look at the success of Radio Minerva and The Roma. The afternoon started with a vintage fashion show and there also was a barbershop to style the spitfires. De old cinema complex looked like back in the days, with a wooden dance floor, a balcony ( for all the puppy love thingies). Around 20h00, dance school Apollo swing, showed the audience a few moves, and got the whole hall strolling from left to right. This made a deep impression on me, it’s ... continue reading

The Blue Moon Rockers @ De Tien Deugden Oss ( NL), 12/01/2008
We know a bit late, but there were some problems getting it translated.
For us Oss is one of the farest places we drove to, but nothing is too far to hear R’n’r. For a change I, in contradiction to almost everyone who wears an Elvis t-shirt, decided to wear an Eddie Cochran t-shirt. This man has made a deep impression on me, because of his raw voice and his untimely dead.
In the Netherlands the bands usually play 3 sets, so no harm is done when arriving a bit late. The Blue Moon Rockers are a 5 piece band, who get their inspiration from the 1950’s hit parades. They play songs like: “ Teenager in love” from Dion and The Belmonts, ... continue reading

The Slapbacks @ Den Bromfiets Bonheiden 03/02/2008
Another Sunday afternoon in a quiet little town, but soon the town would be transformed in rockabilly heaven, all to do with the gig of these 3 guys from Austria “The Slapbacks”.
Nothing really has changed since the last time we saw them, still double bass, rhythm and lead guitar and kick drum. But this it what makes it a great band, they got their own sound, it works wonderful. As a result of these guys reputation, den Bromfiets soon was packed. Even our Dutch friends joined the party. Some folks ( including myself) had a bit of a rough night on Saturday, cause the zombie walk could be seen quite a few times.
The band started around ... continue reading

A message from the Cruise-Inn
Unfortunately Wayne Hancock will not be playing at the Cruise Inn on the 22nd of March.
Due to the fact that Wayne got a new manager and sadly enough screwed up the deal with us and several other bookings that were made, he won't even be touring Europe at all.
Off course we will book another band or two.....so don't hesitate to come anyways ;-)
