The Vanguard presents
It's a Double Jive Shakedown!!!! w/THE SONIC ACES & THE BLACK MARIAS
JIVESVILLE... FIRST SHOW (6:00pm - 8:30pm)
The Kings of Australian rockabilly WES PUDSEY and the SONIC ACES, geiger blitz it with the Dukes of neo-50s rhythm and blues the BLACK MARIAS for two atomic zapping shows back to back.
World-acclaimed singer-songwriter Wes Pudsey and the Sonic Aces have penned and performed some of the most memorable anthems to emerge from Australia’s independent music scene. Songs now considered modern Rockabilly classics –My Baby Looks Like Betty Page, Maybe, There’s Gonna Be A Rumble, Hepster Daddy-o and many others have taken the Sydney-based rocker around the world several times, backed by his frenetic trio of roots-rock adepts The Sonic Aces. Headlining at music festivals including the Hemsby Weekender in the UK and America’s Viva Las Vegas, Wes has shared the stage with fellow roots-rock luminaries Southern Culture On The Skids, members of the legendary Rockabilly group The Stray Cats, and American swing-jump blues legends Royal Crown Revue, to name but a few.
SWING TEASE... SECOND SHOW (9.30pm - 11.30pm)
It's Round Two between the ACES and the MARIAHS as the two combos battle it out in a swanging bump 'n grind frenzy.
Opening up the salvo will be JIMMY VARGAS and the BLACK MARIAS with their tripled barrel blast of Crime Jazz, Burlesque Blues and Swing Noir featuring canary MARCELLA MINX and the Marias’ new burleycue muse MISS PEGGY PETITE who reinterprets the combo's original tunes with her signature sass and vavoom.
THE INTERNATIONAL HIGH PRIESTS OF HEP RAVE:
WILL VIHARO...RETROSPECTIVE (NEW YORK...USA)
"Vargas and his combo jazz up the notion of nostalgia with sensuous sass and ballsy rhythm and blues."
JASON CROFT JAVA BACHELOR PAD (CHICAGO / USA)
Jimmy Vargas & the Black Marias ...It's Beatnik Blues..It’s Hollywood and Vine howls, and the lost souls of a thousand hucksters. It’s music that drags you to a down-and-dirty, bump-and-grind world."
