Mack Stevens, who hails from central Texas, was raised by his Okie dad and Arkansas mom to love the 50s music of Carl Perkins, Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams. He’s played his own music since his teens and has released over 35 different 45s, lps, and CDs (and a 78 it’s rumored) on many labels from Japan to Germany. He continues this international trend by recording with bands from Argentina, France, really anyone who knows real rockabilly music. He currently lives in the Dallas, Texas area with his lovely bride Karina and they walk the walk and talk the talk of unreconstructed rockabillies. His shows, raw and wild, have created a record of what constitutes rockabilly. Mack divides his time collecting and selling vinyl records, recording, playing and traveling. You won’t hear the Stray Cat style rockers played on his show IN THE GROOVE, but you just might just hear Malcolm Yelvington or Sonny Fisher.
Born and raised on his parents farm in the hills of the country side of Germany he was introduced and infected to the Rockabilly-Virus by a friend at the age of 15. Now, aged 42, he is still rockin´ around. Since 1998 he is a DJ on several rockin´ events in the area of his hometown, as well known as the legendary “Wildcat Night” in Frankfurt, Germany. Since 2010 he´s playing the snare in his american-roots-band ”The Henhouse Ramblers”. In the past he has organized several record hops and concerts too, where he also did his job as DJ. You can meet him on several rockin´ events in Germany and Europe. His favorite music styles are nearly all rockin´ styles of the 50´s, as there are Rockabilly, Hillbilly, Rhythm and Blues, Western Swing, Rock´n´Roll, boppin´ Blues, and also some Swing tunes.

“Born in London, England, Dave grew up listening to the rock ‘n’ roll
records of his parents and enjoyed being part of the rockabilly revival
of the 1970s, at which time he organised a club and deejayed at The
Roundacre in Basildon, Essex. Always deeply interested in the history of
the music of the 1940s and 1950s, Dave has been researching and writing
about the music he loves for over thirty years for various blues, r&b
and rock ‘n’ roll magazines and has compiled and written essays for
literally hundreds of LP and CD reissues during that time for labels
such as El Toro, Fantastic Voyage, Charly, Ace, Route 66, Rev-Ola,
Classics, Stompin’, Indigo, Catfish and many others.”

I grew up listening to some of the great Philly Jocks like Hy Lit, Andy Volvo, Georgie Woods. My dream was to do a live show of my own some day. Steve Applebaum made it all happen for me in 2008. He was one of music mentors that I admired. I started out with Goldradio in 2008 and 2010 on The Doo Wop Cafe. I now have a radio station of my own www.bvharmonyradio.com. It’s all for the listeners who love a mix of music such as R&B, vocal harmony and other genres of music. It is a pleasure to be a part of Radio Billy. Tune in when you get a chance!

Rockabilly is one of the most representative genres born from the Rock and Roll in the 50s.
Rockabilly is a fusion with the Hillbilly, Country, Western Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Boogie Woogie and Appalachian folk music.
There are many artists who made this great honor among the most representative genre we could quote Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Bob Luman, Johnny Burnette, Warren Smith among many others…
As well born in the middle era of social and racial tensions, the vast majority of the musicians that shaped this genre were from the country, hillbilly, Western Swing music was clearly touched by whites.
Although the hallmark of Sam Phillips gave a substantial change and a more welcoming black influence white musicians such Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis among others who had a great influence of blues musicians, Rhythm & Blues, Boogie Woogie of the time but also influenced by white music trends as the styles mentioned above.

A tale of straight razors and hair grease, this freewheeling film is proof that rockabilly is alive and well thanks to a small barber shop in the West End. At It’s Something Hell’s on Carnaby Street, the Toulouse-born Mr. Ducktail and his pin-up stylist wife Miss Betty ply their trade, coiffering the city’s pin-ups and hepcats. With his own brand of clothing, hair products and an enormous online following, Mr. Ducktail is something of a legend in the London rockabilly scene, and makes all his customers wait without appointment, celebrity or not. An exploration of the life and styles of a modern day 50′s rocker.
Followed by a very special live music night, band names TBC.

As soon as the Hi-Fly Rangers kick off the first few bars of “Misery Train,” the opening cut on their second record (the long-awaited followup to 2006′s Hot Rod Ride to the Moon) out on Goofin’ Records, you know you’re in for a treat. And from beginning to end, Another Gear keeps the promise of those first few bars. With a mix of cleverly chosen cover tunes and perfectly convincing originals, the Rangers rip through the 15 cuts on this disc with no-holds-barred, no apologies rockabilly.
The band is a three piece in the most classic rockabilly sense with upright bassist Jake holding down the entire bottom end by himself–there’s not a drummer to be heard on this record. KK–who also plays with Maibell and the Misfires–has the rockabilly sound down cold and plays great guitar throughout. With Vesa on vocals and rhythm guitar, the trio is complete.
I love the authentic sound these guys pump out. You get into this record quickly and fully and you certainly don’t miss the drums at all. These three guys make a big noise and it’s rockin’ through and through.
In a really nice note KK wrote when he sent this record to me, he points out that the record is basically a home recording and mostly done live. He mentions that he should pick up my book to learn more about home recording, but I can tell you that he could certainly teach me a thing or two about recording. I’ve been striving in my own studio to create an authentic vintage sound and I haven’t been all that happy with my results. But these guys have it knocked. This record sounds great. Everything is clear and distinct and yet it sounds vintage without sounding “old and out of date” (if that makes any sense).
The songs on this project range from out-and-out rockabilly rockers to classic country and hillbilly boogieish numbers. There’s even a rockabilly cover version of Adele’s “Skyfall” from the Bond flick. Sounds crazy, yeah, but these guys pull it off and it works.
I had lots of fun listening to how these guys put their instrumentation together. Like I said, you don’t miss the drums even one bit. Jake doesn’t play with a strong slap on all of the songs, but when he wants to use it, he uses it really, really well. It’s also fun to listen to the interplay between the bass and the rhythm guitar. Nowhere is this more cool than on their original tune “Please Baby Please” where the bass notes act as the kick drum on ones and threes while the acoustic guitar fills in for the missing snare drum on the twos and fours, with the bass string slaps keeping the rhythm usually provided by the hi-hat cymbals. And it’s like that on song after song.
Vesa–who I think wrote most of the originals here, although the liner notes are not totally clear on that–has a great rockabilly voice. He sounds at turns like Elvis, Johnny Burnette, Eddie Cochran…well, you get the idea. His influences are displayed proudly. But he doesn’t mindlessly ape his heroes. He takes their influences and crafts his own sound. These guys are Finish, and while you can catch Vesa’s accent every once in a while, for the most part he sounds convincingly American. And not just American, but authentically southern American at that. Not that that matters one way or the other because this is great music whether with an American accent or a Finish accent. Great music is just great music any way you look at it.
It always impresses me when I hear bands from around the world who have such a solid and true understanding of this music. I try to imagine myself singing Finish music in Finish and sounding anywhere near authentic. Of course, it couldn’t happen. But these guys have really studied this music and they have an amazing feel for it. Clearly they’ve studied their English too. Add on top of that their ability to write not only the music, but also lyrics that completely make sense to the ears of a native English speaker, is truly impressive.
This is a really fine record from beginning to end. Whether the band is singing one of the rockers or breezing through a classic country swinger, I’ve enjoyed this record thoroughly and I believe you will too if you appreciate authentic rockabilly delivered with honesty and total lack of pretension.
My recommendation: Get this record and start spinning it as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed!
