The Alleycats are a 50’s style rock’n’roll band based in SE London. They were formed in 1998, but have had quite a few changes since then. Only surviving member of the original four piece line-up, Drew Spikes, seems to have accumulated a motley collection of old mates from previous bands to make up the current six piece line-up.americana02trimmedJohnny, Drew & Butch all used to be in Yakety Yak together back through the 70\’sDrew & Mick used to be in Sonny King & the Sons Of Swing in the early 80\’s,Newest member is Paul Kent, who took over recently on drums from Jerry (Gerard Barte). Sometimes, however, if Paul is unavailable, we still borrow Richie Taylor from the Sundowners or ex-member Eddie Gentry.We haven\’t had a permanent piano player since Rusty first went to join the Kingcats, but have had several great players take it in turns to give us that extra dimension.

Current band is:Johnny Valentino (vocals/guitar)Drew Spikes (vocals/bass)Mick \’Guitar\’ Murphy (vocals/lead guitar)Butch Evarts (tenor sax/vocals)Paul Kent (drums)and a guest pianist who might be one of:-Claire Hamlin (ex Slammers Maximum Jive Band)Jamie Rowan (lately part of The Stargazers)Dan Edwards (ex Extraordinaires, now Big Boy Bloater)alleycats2013The Alleycats finally have a new CD released, a dozen rockin’ tracks, half classic covers and half brand new rock’n’roll songs. for more information about the CD click on the image below.uptoscratchforcdbaby The Alleycats have covered a very broad spectrum of 50’s rock’n’roll, from rockabilly to doo-wop, so have a wide range of influences.Top Ten (in no particular order) narrowed down to:Big Joe Turner – Boogie Woogie Country Girl

Dion Di Mucci – Love Came To Me

Bill Haley – Real Rock Drive

Elvis Presley – I Forgot To Remember To Forget

Five Satins – In The Still Of The Night

Eddie Cochran – Teenage Heaven

Chuck Berry – (C’Est La Vie) You Never Can Tell

The Catfish Kings have “Fifties Music” written through them like a stick of Brighton Rock. Take some New Orleans R&B in the manner of Little Richard and Fats Domino, mix with the boogie beat of Big Joe Turner & Moon Mullican and then blend in the jumping jive of Louis Jordan and Lavern Baker. You have the perfect cocktail for an evening of smash hit dance music. Featuring Big Al on piano, Terry Green on Tenor Sax and dual vocalists Harry Lang (doubling on guitar) and Sarah Cotton (also baritone sax), all urged on their way by the driving force of Stewart Green, drums and Pete Sinden bass.

Formed almost five years ago, the band are seasoned pro’s each with at least 25 years experience; Band members have played/recorded in the past with Chuck Berry, Steve Cropper, Ruby Turner, Lou Pride, Roddy Jackson and many US rhythm n blues artists.

The Catfish Kings have appeared at Twinwood Vintage Festival; Broadstairs Folk Week; The Canterbury Festival; Kings Of Rock n Roll; Warners Holiday Weekends; Holiday Rock; many weddings. parties, rock and roll/jive nights throughout the UK; leading London venues including Dover St. Jazz Bar, Rivoli Ballroom and the Swamp Rock Club.

Rather than blather on about ourselves, we thought we’d let some of the many satisfied promoters, punters and party planners – people like yourselves, tell you what they thought of The Catfish Kings:

“The party was a great success, to which The Catfish Kings contributed greatly. You delivered just what we wanted and everyone enjoyed the night – the proof was in the dancing. I don’t think the dancefloor was ever empty.”
David S, New Zealand

CFK Harry Lang, vocalist, guitarist

“We hired The Catfish Kings for our wedding reception in November. The music was terrific and really made the party go with a swing. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there wasn’t one song when the dance floor wasn’t crowded – that says a lot! As for most weddings the age range was from children to a 96 year old and they all loved the music. My great nephews who were aged about 16 – 25 all had a great time and their Mum said that was the first time she’d seen them all up on a dance floor.  Everyone was very sad when it was time for the band to pack up. So in summary the Catfish Kings are superb for a party of all ages.”
Valerie 

“We have had many positive comments on the night and in the days after about you and the band being so good to dance to and being very professional.”

“We are glad you enjoyed yourselves, I can tell you we certainly did ! I hope it was worthwhile travelling all the down here. Every time we mention it to bands etc. we feel that we are officially at the end of the world !” 
Mike Riggs, Rock and roll promoter, S Wales

CFK Sarah Cotton, featured vocalist

“Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you and the Catfish Kings for your performance at our wedding.”

“As we suspected, we didn’t see or enjoy as much of it as we would have liked (very little actually) but the reports we got back were great. ” 
Tim L

“You were all superb a top class high end Saturday band and would grace any of the very best events – the audience loved you.”

CFK Big Al Live

“Your music set was so varied and of the highest quality where have you been throughout my 19 Blackpool years ?”
Brian Amos, promoter of rock and roll at Blackpool Imperial Hotel

“Thank you for brilliant playing on Saturday, fabulous band and commented on by all. And thank you for bearing with the slightly slack time-keeping too which meant you played well beyond midnight (I ditched my watch as it didn’t go with my dress so had no idea of the timing most of the evening!)”

Since 2004, this stripped down stompin’ band has blazed a trail across France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Finland, Spain and the UK. (Steve also headlined Rough House (Japan) with Boz Boorer in 2003 and toured
the East Coast (USA) with an American line up in 2005).

In 2012 with the new line up, they played at Gaz’ Rockin’ Blues London, Rockabilly Street (Holland) and Southend Pier Festival (UK), then booked into a favorite Essex studio to work on new material. Now 2014 is lookin’ good with tour dates booked into 2015, the new album “Smokin’ Guitar” on CD and Download, a cameo appearance by Steve in the film “Looking For Johnny” and interest from Sweden, Japan, Canada and the USA too.

Formed in 1980, they released the seminal ‘FIGHT BACK’ album in 1981 and began a manic couple of years on the road. Their audience grew rapidly into a new kind of following. Their fusion of ‘Rockabilly’ and ‘New Wave’ caused the press to call them Neo Rockabilly. In 1982 they recorded an experimental E.P. under the name ‘THE G-MEN’ the song ‘GOTTA GO’ from that record opened a new chapter in their career. By late 1983 they were working on the songs that would form the basis of the next stage on their journey ‘BELTANE FIRE’.Bcats1980After a hugely successful year on the Alternative London club circuit they signed to SONY records in late 1984 and in 1985 recorded ‘DIFFERENT BREED’. They spent the next couple of years touring, never really being at home with a major that in those days required the bloody Single! In 1989 the band re-located to New York under the name ‘FLAME OF THE WEST’ During this period they were a three piece, they started to play at CBGB’s and things started to move again but due to an injury one of the band had to return to England and they lost the momentum. In 1992 they recorded again as ‘THE BLUE CATS’ the result was the critically acclaimed album ‘THE TUNNEL’. They then spent another year on the road together but in 1993 decided to go their separate ways to pursue other projects.Bcats1992In 2008 after not seeing each other for 15 years they agreed to reform for a festival gig, BANG! The vibe was back. Over the last eighteen months or so the band have been writing together again, and now believes they have a collection of the best songs they have ever worked on together. In April 2012 they recorded a new studio album, that was released in the Autumn of 2012 . With a string of highly successful gigs across Europe and an ever increasing number of new dates to look forward to in 2014, THE BLUE CATS ARE ALL SYSTEMS go!!!!!BCATS1 To read the full history of the Blue Cats click here – HISTORY

Jailbirdsband

Johnny and the Jailbirds were formed at the end of 1973 when I moved from Charlton South East London to Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. I had been introduced to Rock ‘n’ Roll one winters’ day in 1969. The gig was at St. Micks Social Club in Kent and the band was Lee Tracy and the Tributes. I then became a member of the “Hound Dog” club Woodgreen and was found on most Saturday nights there and at the “Tunnel” pub in Greenwich. I saw all the bands at that time, Flying Saucers, Crazy Cavan, Freddy Fingers Lee, The Wild Angels, but the one that did it for me was the incredible Shakin’ Stevens and the Sunsets. He introduced this novice rocker to Johnny Burnette. I don’t remember any other band performing those songs and you knew that was it. I now wanted to sing. So after moving to Wellingborough I placed an advert in the local newspaper to recruit musicians interested in forming a Rock ‘n’ Roll Band. The response was immediate and after a few rehearsals and the firstgig in a local village club Johnny and the Jailbirds were born.

The Jets Cover.jpg

Bob Ray and Tony Cotton better known as THE JETS have had 9 chart hit records and have become the top 50’s style R’n’roll band around!

 To book “The Jets” click here to contact their agent Paul Barrett

JETS LOGO

IN THE BEGINNING!

First formed in 1974 as four piece Rock’n’Roll band , specialising in the ’50s era, then using the name BRAD. After various line up changes and learning the trade the band settled on a three piece line up and a name change in 1978.

BROTHERS 
THE JETS were now a family concern. Eldest brother Bob on lead vocals and double bass. Ray the middle brother on lead guitar and vocals, last but certainly not least youngest brother Tony on drums and yes, you’ve guessed it vocals. A three piece band playing with as much energy and full sound as a six piece outfit.
RECORDS 
A recording career soon came around and the three brothers were snapped up by record company giants EMI, achieving Top Twenty hit records and albums (9 hit records listed in the Guinness book of hit records). Pop videos and of course TV shows, Top of the pops etc, gave The Jets valuable experience and chance to travel the world doing what they do best. 
The Eleventh and latest Album, “Bolt of Lightning” is out now.

The Jets cover 2

TOURING. 
Touring has been in THE JETS blood since ’78, Scandinavia, Europe, Japan, USA have all been visited, headlining their own tours and as part of the bill on numerous festivals with such artists as Sting, Boy George, Robert Plant, Right Said Fred, Cliff Richard, Shakin’ Stevens, as well as Original ’50’s artists, Carl Perkins, Jack Scott, Elvis’ drummer D.J.Fontana (who actually played drums with the Jets), Charlie Gracie, The Crickets, The Teenagers and British rockers Marty Wilde, Wee Willie Harris, Billy Fury…etc. 
If there is a multi-cultural festival happening and a LIVE Rock’n’Roll band with real live Guitar, Drums(not tapes, loops, sequencers or computers) and a Double Bass pounding away and being used as some sort of climbing frame, then THE JETS will be somewhere on the bill.

Jets_in_Sun_studios_03


THEATRES TO THE N.E.C. 
Not only will you find THE JETS playing to dance audiences but you will also just as easily find them appearing across the length and breadth of the country at various Theatres. 
The Motorcycle Show at the N.E.C. played host to the Cotton brothers for three years in succession. Over 180,000 people attended the shows and The Jets are certainly not strangers to a lot of them, some would have definitely seen the lads Headline at the famous Isle of Man TT races street party , if not at two of the previous Bike shows. The lads regularly play various balls, parties, corporate functions, car shows, ski resorts….etc.

The Jets Legends

MAKING PLANS 
Plans for THE JETS include further tours of the Theatres and of course numerous club dates around Gt.Britain. Another trip to Japan, with dates in the pipeline for shows in the USA and Australia plus all the regular trips to Europe. With the release of the eleventh album “Bolt of Lightning”, the Jets will be promoting their unique brand of R’n’R world-wide….(to be continued)

rockero

Leanne Rose, has for some time been a familiar name on the Country music scene. Whilst in Nashville, Tennessee Leanne sang with The John England Band who have supported such greats as Patsy Cline and Hank Thompson. On her return to the UK, being a fan of Janis Martin Leanne decided to form her own Rockabilly band , enter the fold The Rockéros, Laurie Hilton Ash on drums, bassist Bruno Pannone, Richie Young on rhythm guitar with Morgan Willis playing lead guitar. The more erudite might just recognise a couple of the names as being members of that well known and respected band The Rhythm River Trio.

With their raw mix of Hillbilly, Rockabilly and Western Swing they quickly caught the ear of Dave Mumbles who headlined them at The Brighton Rumble Dec. 2012 and also Steve (Stack o’ Wax) Jepson who featured The Rockéros on his Forest FM radio show in January. On their return from playing at High Rockabilly in Tarragonna, Spain, October saw them off to Sugar Rays, (possibly the most authentic 1950’s recording studio in the UK) to lay down a few tracks. Hopefully to be released before xmas….hint, hint

THE EXCELLOS
The Beatles of Swamp Rock: The Excellos Spirit of Excello Records – For any of you who were fans of Excello Records, the premier American Swamp Rock Blues Record label in the 50’s home of the great blues men: Slim Harpo, Lazy Lester, Lightnin’ Slim, Charles Sheffield, Roscoe Shelton, Lonesome Sundown, Silas Hogan and Arthur Gunter, an English rock group The Excellos named after the record company that in influenced them, have become the keepers of the Excello Records flame, playing both classic Excello Swamp rock and original swamp rock with Excello Roots. I’m really surprised nobody thought of doing what The Excellos did sooner. I discovered them surfing the web and was absolutely knocked out. Unlike most bands who’s original’s can’t match their influence’s covers, The Excellos originals exceed them! Quite simply they are “The Beatles of Swamp Rock”. I love their sound, image and their sole album, The Excellos. Craig Shaw on vocals, harmonica and guitar seems to be the “Front Man” from what I can gather and he looks like he should star in a 1950s drive in movie or TV series battling Zombies and Supernatural Geeks. Check out those incredible Sideburns-Is this not one of the greatest looks ever for a Rock Star:

 

The Excellos CD album really sounds like it was authentically recorded in the 50’s and bravo to whoever produced this fantastic album- there’s sadly no producers credit. This is the first album I ever played that seems to have a drug induced hypnotic effect on me and I feel like I’m actually experiencing living in the 50’s listening to The Excellos. Every track is great and total grit and cuts like a razor blade against wire. The album opens with a great cover of “Got Love it You Want it” and unofficially ends with a great cover of “Shake Your Hips (there is actually a hidden version “Meet Me at the Bottom” which follows). In between there are outstanding originals, the best being the infectious “You Don’t Care”, “Jekyll & Hyde”, “Jump” and the best original instrumental I’ve heard in like forever, “Kasbah”. Each of The Excello members contribute songwriting and they all do it really well.

Doggone Daddys 2.jpg
Wingate, United Kingdom

Phil Johnston and Danny Clarke of The Sunset Trio have been playing together for over 20 years. Along with Phil Larry who became great friends with the pair after meeting in a Tattoo studio and always talked about playing with authentic 1950’s sound. Both Phil J and Danny had already played in Rockabilly / Country bands, but always wanted a band in the style of The Doggone Daddy’s.

Both Phil J (Lead Vocals/Cocktail Drums/Rhythm Guitar) and Danny Clarke (Double Bass) along with Phil Larry (Lead Guitar/ Lead Vocals) got together and made their sound somewhere between the Johnny Burnette Trio with a country twang.

1017075_635285096484448_1853683087_n
The Sunset Trio (Phil J and Danny) had been performing on the country music circuit for 15 years. During this time they had worked in Spain, Portugal, Holland, Germany and Nashville Tennessee, supporting such acts as Carl Perkins, BR5-49, Heather Miles and Danni Leigh. Their style of music had always been different to anything else on the country music scene in the UK.
Phil Larry had been performing for as long as he could remember. Working with a series of local bands ever since he first taught himself the guitar at the age of 16. Phil, now 25, has developed into a competent and versatile guitarist, vocalist and songwriter due to working with experienced musicians. The boys would more than agree.
560020_655273104485647_653430428_n
Since starting the band the guys have gone on to support such acts as Charlie Gracie, The Go Getters, The Polecats, Carl Mann and James Intvelt. As well as working at some of the UK’s biggest festivals; The Americana and Hemsby. The guys are extremely enthusiastic about the future of The Doggone Daddy’s and anyone who loves an authentic sound of the 1950’s will love The Doggone Daddy’s.
