Belgian Dixie Kings !!!
Belgium is very proud, and justifiably, of its chocolate, its beer, Clijsters and Hénin!!!
Well, I can assure you there is much more than that!! Take my wisdom, for example, ... hum, let's skip that one... How about The Belgian Dixie Kings??
Four damn good top musicians, Frank, Danny, Patrick and Carlo formed a dixieland-band. They dress themselves in very original New Orleans outfit, and make you travel through the time, back to the 20's.
Visit their website, and keep an eye on their moves...

Hackberry Ramblers bass player dead at 79
John A. "Johnny" Faulk, bass player from the Hackberry Ramblers, died Sunday at a Lake Charles Hospital after falling ill unexpectedly earlier in the week. The Hackberry Ramblers exist since 1933, but Faulk joined around 1979. Although the band celebrated its 70th anniversary last year, it won national acclaim in more recent years, with a Grammy nomination and a film on PBS earlier this year, "Make'em Dance: the Hackberry Ramblers Story."
Faulk had performed as recently as last weekend in New Orleans when the band played a fais-do-do at Tipitina's dance hall and at the Prytania Theatre, following a showing of the film.He was one of the youngest ... continue reading

You all know that song from The Paladins "slip slip slip slip slippin' in ... ". Well from now on I've got my own version "slip slip slip slip slipmates ... ".
Yesterday I had the privilege to see "The Slipmates" in actions at the "Rockin' around Geldrop 2004" event.
I have to confess, I didn't know these guys ... till yesterday, that is. A nice crossover of Rockabilly, country, hillbilly and a lot of all the other goodies. They played a great set of classics with a pinch of slipmates-interpretation. And they left those nice rough edges in place, just the way it should be. But, as usual, it's the special and the daring stuff that keeps ... continue reading

Moonshine Reunion !
If you've never heard of "Moonshine Reunion", shame on you!! ... or haven't you been following "the adventures of the ex Fab Frankies"? This 5 headed (Belgian) band, 4 ex "Fabulous Frankies" strengthened with the guitar picking of "Bart De Boeck" (ex Swampdolls), sure knows how to rock. Their demo is a real beauty, a mix of swamp-blues, rockabilly and hillbilly. Years of stage experience, a huge musical knowledge, and a healthy attitude results in a hell of a show.
It's about time to see them performing!! Visit their website or check "events" on billybop to see if you can catch a show near to your place.
