…this old 1950’s cliche’ is even more relevent today. A great example is RAY ALLEN. He and his band are playing real Rock’n’Roll! RAY ALLEN plays authentic rocking ‘late 50s’ and the bopping early 60s’ sounds without compromise. They even look the part with authentic clothing, microphones, and instruments. They are returning real R+R to the modern day national and international stages. Ray’s program, from the self-named ‘Teen-Age-Rocker,’ is a mix of Rock’n’Roll, Rockabilly, Popular and Instrumental music. The songs range from wild rockers, via crisp strollers to cool jives. Apart from his own arrangements, songs from Kenneth Parchman, Don Woody, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sonny Burgess, Roy Hall und Gene Summers are part of the repertory. The band , formed around frontman and bandleader Mathias Arnold a.k.a. RAY ALLEN, has been constantly developing in the past years. Today’s performance is influenced by experiences and inspirations gathered from projects like “Moonlight Classics“, “RAY ALLEN With The Hi-Fi’s“, “RAY ALLEN & The Blue Rhythms“ and “RAY ALLEN Trio“.

Out of Los Angeles, California, singer, guitar showman, Marcel Riesco has been on stages all over the world for a few years now developing a strong reputation with the rockin’ crowds everywhere. He has a new explosive solo album recorded at Lightning Recorders in Berlin, Germany, with some of the finest musicians around, and with the finest vintage equipment available. The wonderful sounds were put directly onto tape, and will be released on LP by one of the finest Rock and Roll labels around. It couldn’t get any better. Marcel has a cool tour schedule for this year too…hopefully you will see him and his band live?

Passionate record collector and DJ performer from wall city Berlin. His duty: to serve some hot wax. Life in 45 rpm directly for the dance floor – since many years, on countless record hops. Playing a real gone selection of Rockabilly and R’n’B Screamers. Jivers, Boppers, Strollers- 45 vinyl only! Great mix, great party! Be there, get out….and dance!!!

Be it on the double bass or on the double vinyl decks – SHAKIN´ CASI aka BOPPIN’ MONKEY REVUE is known throughout the land for frantic shows!
Having started the ole musical career over 25 years ago on the electric bass he soon discovered an urge for the juicy warmth of bigger sounding bodies. And so Shakin’ Casi changed to the upright bass and turned to the various stylistical possibilities this instrument offers. He mastered the different styles of american roots music, the various forms of the blues and a huge chunk of what is known as jazz. But his playing is never dogmatic and his love for vintage movie soundtracks, obscure world music and much more always glimmers through. Although an afficionado of the volatile, Shakin’ Casi’s musical projects always stand for a massive impact – be it the ever so jumpin’ CHERRY CASINO & THE GAMBLERS, rockin’ & boppin’ ROUND UP BOYS or the magnificient HIGH STEPPERS.
As mentioned before he also performs as DJ SHAKIN’ CASI or BOPPIN’ MONKEY REVUE, who will turn every crowd into a bunch of wild savages – with the man himself as the priest chieftain.
