Wild Deuces

Genre: Rockabilly band

Biography:

In April 2015 three musicians ( Bart C: double bass, Bart H:  guitar and Pascal L: drums ), who already did their  fair share of work in the roots scene, decided to form an authentic rockabilly band.  Searching for a front lady, they met Stefni W. in May of 2015 and all the pieces fell in place.  They played their first gig in September of that year . From that time on, they played on different stages and festivals in the Benelux ( Rockabilly Day, Rockabilly Swamp, HOG Meeting, Ace Café Belgium, BrockXL, Rockabilly Deluxe, Bethune Retro, Sjock festival,…). Their sound is pure and full of energy, like real rock ‘n’ roll used to be. The musical energy generated by the band is enough to run a V8 at full throttle, driven by the passion and power of the front lady.

Shotgun Sally

Genre: Rockabilly, Roots, Rock & Roll, Surf

 

Biography:

Now, take 2 gallons of Wanda Jackson, 2 gallons of Etta James, a spoonful Howlin’ Wolf, a shot of Dick Dale, add some Cramps and a pint of Nick Curran, mix that all up, shake it, stir it, and light it on fire. The result you get : Shotgun Sally !!! 

 

They combine the spirit of the 1950’s rock & roll with the attitude of modern musical gun slingers. Their 2016 self-titled debut album has been well received by the local press and audiences. 

Shotgun Sally is female fronted by Katrien, the embodiment of wild performing art, combining stunning vocals with stunning looks, and back boned by Jimmy on drums, who from a very young age toured the world as a R&R dancer and later exchanged that for playing the drums in his father’s big band where the groovy swing seed got planted. 

 

The Shotgun Sally band didn’t stop to evolve and in September 2017 there was a change of guard when - although their relative young age and everlasting good looks you can call them veterans of the roots scene – Rico (guitar) and Sebi (upright bass) joined the band. With the four of them, they have been playing a long series of staggering rock & roll shows, having great fun on all kind of bar, club and festival stages all over Belgium and The Netherlands. In March 2019 they are releasing a new single on vinyl, containing 2 original Shotgun Sally Songs (Never Gonna Break My Heart, Sugar Coated Lovin’) as a prelude to their still to record upcoming full album which will contain mainly original songs. So don’t hesitate to check out one of their shows … ‘cause one thing’s for sure … Shotgun Sally still has some unfinished business to take care of !

The Belgian U2 Experience

"U2be - The Belgian U2 Experience" is an experienced U2 Tribute Band. U2be amazingly accurately brings both older hits and newer work with passion and respect for the original from Ireland. With all the hits from around 40 (!) Years of U2 history on their playlist, they are sure to speak to a very wide audience with their non-stop swirling shows: Where the Streets Have No Name, Pride, Vertigo, Beautiful Day, Elevation, I will follow, Sunday bloody Sunday, New Years’ day, With or without you, One… With great attention to detail they unraveled the typical “wall of sound” and reconstructed it with the typical and very recognizable sounds, the use of samples / intros,… as brought by “U2” itself. In addition, the focus was also placed on the visual aspect: looks & moves on stage, identical instruments, video animation (synchronous with the music ... a technical tour de force!). All this to make the audience even more absorbed in the show. See their live images via the YouTube channel, a band with a (hi)story

 

"The Belgian U2 Experience" was founded at the end of 2011 by guitarist Franky Aneca and consists of musicians from West & East Flanders. From 2012 we have collected a nice “palmares” in Flanders, Wallonia and the Netherlands. Nick Beernaert is singer "Bono" at U2be. Nick has more than 25 years of stage experience and proved in TV programs such as The Voice (2012 and 2019), X-factor, ... that he has some sturdy vocal cords. With the experience and knowledge built up since 2011 and the driven frontman Nick, U2be is a hit ... and they are without a doubt one of the most authentic and appreciated U2 tribute bands in Europe.

Biography:

Los Fantasmas mix shreds of surf, garage, (60s-)punk and rockabilly into raw and loud ghostabilly since 2015. The red hot cocktail is prepared using greasy Gretsch guitar, overdriven violin bass and old school violent drums. All songs are true stories. Protected by lucha libre masks, El Pulpo, El Loco and El Spock wander around in a universe full of dangerous women, monsters and aliens. Therefore every performance may be the very last and that is why they go to the bone every time.

 

In January 2018 the clip “Werewolf” is released. From May till October 2018 they recorde a full album with producer Erik Van Biesen (Gorki, The Paranoiacs, Revenge 88). Single “Frankenstein Monster”, taken from the album, is released with a een clip in May 2019. Release of the full album on cd is scheduled for 2020, but in the mean time they release demo “Dracula” with a clip in March 2020. In May 2020 they make the 30 minutes video “An evening with Los Fantasmas” for Sodigent vzw.
