Wayne Hancock @ Tiki’s Gierle 21/10/2007
After receiving the message that there would be a surprise gig of Wayne Hancock at Tiki’s, it was time to get out of bed, get ready and drive to Gierle. It was around 18.00 when i got there and he was just about to start. The place was already packed and during the course of the gig more people joined the audience.
Deserted highways, dark pubs and third rate hotel rooms, These are the thing Wayne “ The Train” Hancock loves to sing about.

1950's singer Teresa Brewer dies at 76
NEW YORK - Singer Teresa Brewer, who topped the charts in the 1950s with such hits as "Till I Waltz Again with You" and performed with jazz legends Count Basie and Duke Ellington, died Wednesday. She was 76.

Fifth Rockin' Bowl (Antwerp)
Last Saturday October 13, the Antwerp Bowling was the place to be for the fifth Rockin’ Bowl. The first “Charlie Roy“ started at 22.00 h. Their set contained some good old, well-known rockabilly classics. They sounded so good an authentic, that when I returned from the toilet and I heard “Jungle Rock” from “Hank Mizzel” and I thought “DJ Rudy” was already doing his thing, but the band was still rocking the place like hell.
