When Don Rogall is behind the DJ booth, it's virtually impossible not to dance. Even if you've got two left feet. Even if you're an impassive misanthrope who habitually hunches over your drink. Don slips a 7" gem from its sleeve, places the needle gently along a track, and the speakers erupt in a gritty groove with such a gravitational pull, your head starts bobbing, your toes twitching, and then you're hauled to your feet, riding that sweet funky rhythm ...
Native New Yorker SAUDIA YOUNG rips the room apart with her powerhouse voice that is equal parts satin and sand. Fuses exotic rhythms with raw R&B grooves, her Noir Rockabilly Blues burns like a distillery and will send you onto the dancefloor in delirious spasms and shakes.

JELLY-JAW JACK B. LATIMER plays and sings the finest in country blues, rags, jazz, gospel and hillbilly from the 1920s & 30s. Ever since arriving in Europe from Australia he has awed audiences with his rollicking syncopated resophonic guitar stylings and his intense barrelhouse singing.
KITTY B SHAKE has been dropping superfreaky 45s since she was electrocuted by her home turntable on her fourth birthday. Expect rowdy rock n' roll, greasy R&B screamers, weird country songs about serial killers, failed novelty songs, dance crazes that didn't catch on (and possibly weren't meant to), savage '60s teen garage stompers, absurd monster screamers, sloppy soul, sleazy strip-beat, macabre country songs and way-out instro-mentals.
