Linz: Kulturzentrum Hof | After enjoying the Schnitzelbilly #1 vinyl release party, we are guessing you already know that beside it’s unique and world-famous sights – St. Stephen's Cathedral, Belvedere Palace, Mirabell Palace, the Golden Roof or the world’s oldest zoo in the Schönbrunn Palace gardens – Austria also has a whole lotta attractions rockin’-wise. The second Schnitzelbilly Vinyl-Release Party once again offers you a peep into the frantic Rock’n’Roll kitchens of four Schnitzel-lovin' Austrian Rockabilly acts!
Austria isn’t shaped like a bizarre guitar by accident – it’s because we rock!!!
The Hillside Wranglers (www.facebook.com/TheHillsideWranglers)
Formed in 2008, the Hillside Wranglers, based in a town counting less than 2500 souls, which the natives call "Hill Village Middle End”, let Rockabilly shine in a brand new and freshly polished way. With their butt-kicking-modern Rockabilly sound, they’re rockin’ from stage to stage all over Austria and beyond. Their second Album “Satisfied At All” on Plan 9 Trash Records includes some of the razor-sharpest, rockiest tunes in the Austrian Rockabilly galaxy of our time.
Johnny Favourit’ (www.johnnyfavourit.com)
Johnny and his boys have dedicated themself to Rockabilly music since 2008 in a fully professional manner. They are enjoying popularity among a large fan base and are constantly touring the European continent as well as the British Isles - and they are well-known as a hot-legged live act, performing their typical eccentric and crazy stage shows. True to the motto of the band: they’re gonna Rock and Roll ya!
The Flatcaps (www.flatcaps.at)
This classic 1950s-Rock’n’Roll trio was formed in 2007 by experienced Rockabillies Andi, Charly and Pete. They present a fine mix of cover versions, mostly of well-known rockin’-50s tunes, in their own distinctive style. Their most remarkable musical attribute beside their perfectly played instruments is Andi’s unique rockin’ voice.
