The Cool Cats Are Out Of The Bag

Some VERY exciting news was announced on Monday! If you're part of the rockabilly community I doubt you missed it but I know there are a few of you who read this blog that aren't 'rockabilly' but are certainly interested in the events that are held.

Well hold on to your hats because the first band line up announcement for this year's Greazefest has been released and it is nothing short of jaw dropping!

Just look at that list of names! And this is only the first announcement - there's even MORE to come!

Holy cow THE PLANET ROCKERS! Everyone is SO excited about these guys hitting our shores after a 10 year hiatus! Formed in Nashville in the late 80s  they've now reformed for a series of reunion shows and the Saturday night at Greazefest will be an exclusive show.

EDDIE ANGEL! Oh. My. Gawd! Founding member and lead guitarist of The Planet Rockers, he's also been a big part of Los Straitjackets (LOVE!) and The Neanderthals and has worked and recorded with some of the rockabilly greats. A Link Wray tribute is gonna rock the house!

I thought the Kustom Kroozers Reunion show was sadly going to be the last time I saw THE CONVERTIBLES but hooray - they're back with a vengence for Greazefest with the pedal to the metal with their 80s rockabilly.

I can't wait to see THE WHITELINERS, hailing from Syndey's inner-west. I've not yet been lucky enough to see these guys as they originally formed in '97, a bit before my time. But I've heard great things about their infectious rocka-hillbilly bop and I'm really looking forward to seeing them!

Get your dancing shoes on for THE FLATTRAKKERS! The gasoline-fuelled tunes of these boys are hard and fast, just the way I like it! Pretty fast to dance to, a spin around the dancefloor while these cats are playing is always a whole lot of hot and sweaty fun!

THE RECHORDS! Yay yay yay yay yay yay yay! Not much more to say on that, my love for these Melbourne boys is already well documented and is about to become even more so in the coming weeks.

Be still my beating heart, RUSTY PINTO is coming to town once again. I love this hep cat's high energy performances and smooth and sweet vocals. Plus he's a super nice guy to boot! I'm looking forward to hanging with him at Garterbelts & Gasoline and it will be lovely to have him back again for Greazefest!

Finally! Finally I get to see THE SIN & TONICS! I've heard amazing things about this Tasmanian trio but I've yet to see them live so I'm really looking forward to hearing their unique blend of punk rockabilly surf tunes - sounds like the perfect combo to me!

*sigh* SCOTTY BAKER, influenced by the Sun Records greats, is a very talented musician and coupled with his sharp dress sense and sweet as honey vocals, watching him perform is pretty dreamy. No doubt he'll have the ladies lined up down the front!

As always, rounding out this stellar line up are local favourites MISS THERESA & HER RYTHMAIRES and the rythmy blues sounds of DAN & THE DUALTONES. With many more bands yet to be announced, August is seeming much to far away!
