Genre: Blues, swing and rockabilly
Three four five…! This band has been active for ten years now and in this time a trio has become a five-piece-band, The WyattChristmas Five. Since the start in 2008, not only the sound has changed, but also the complete line-up: Only the founder and songwriter Andy WyattChristmas (lead-guitar, vocals) is left as the original member. Peter Kühn (guitar, harp, vocals) joined in 2015, followed by Martina Jansen on piano in 2017, Olaf Schumacher on double bass and Philip Flottau on drums.
The five musicians create a brilliant blaze of music in style of blues, swing and rockabilly in an extremely varied and danceable form! Harmony vocals, boogie-woogie piano, driving shuffle groove, blues harp and a very flexible lead guitar give the band all the possibilities to shoot their bullets of creative improvisiation (Wyatt Earp sends his regards) …
The WyattChristmas Five are regularly on the road in Germany and the neighboring countries to provide stylish sound. The band has played at Bethune Retro, Rollin‘ Dudes, Moersquake, Feel The 50ies, Walldorf Weekender, Rockin ‚Around The Christmas Tree, Jump & Jive BBQ, Pullman City and many other events. Three albums on Part Records and one EP are on the books – the new longplayer „Slide’n’Jive“ has just been released in 2019.
