Winter Barn Dance at Cruise Inn, Amsterdam
Here's a review from Rosie Flores on her weekend in Europe (in Germany and at the Cruise Inn in Amsterdam with John Miller & his Country Casuals and the Big Bayou Bandits):

The flight into Amsterdam was long but not as long as the hours left to travel before I could actually get into my hotel room and sleep. Fortunately before the 5 hour drive to Germany we included a couple of stops for some home cooked tasty traditional Dutch meals and then we were off.

I feared we’d gotten lost for a minute or 2 but finally after a couple of hours or so out of the country roads we arrived at a tiny airport in Germany where I got to meet  ... continue reading

The Travellin Men, Tiki’s Gierle 10/03/2007
This Dutch Jump and swing band entertained the audience. They play fifties inspired Rhythm and Blues and they play it well.
From the first note they played the mood was right, The showmanship and instrument control was awesome. Their set list was a mix between self penned songs and covers.
Songs like: “ Chickens”, “ Slow down”, “ At the movies”, “ let it rain”, “ Romp’n Stomp”, “ 7 nights to rock”, “ Flip Flop ‘n’ Fly”, “ Route 66”, “ Tryin”, “ Rocket 69”, followed each other in a good tempo and made almost everyone foot tap or move their head to the rhythms.
Good to see that bands like this are still around and very appreciated by  ... continue reading

Concert review: Batlle Royal @ Malmejo Oostmalle 03/03/2007
The second Battle Royal, had some very good bands and some not so good, and one that i found bad.
Opening the evening and night of rock’n’roll, a new band with members of Los Putas, Fifty Foot Combo and The Mudmen: The Grave Brothers
This band can be described as a cowpunk, rock’n’roll psychosis band. Thought there was a little bit of feedback in the beginning of the gig it was certainly a really good opener.
They played songs like: “Go Fuck you ”, “Rock River”, “ 6 Days on the road”, “ Now Go!”, “ California Kid”, “ Nightwatch”, “ 99 Lves”, “ The most exhaulted Potentate”, “ Drinking with me jesus”. A band that’s worth to go and  ... continue reading
