THE JAILBIRD BEAT
OUT OF PRISON

Irgendwo zwischen leichtfüssigem Country-Rock, dickflüssigem New Orleans Gumbo, freudentränendem Calypso und ausbrecherischen Knastballaden - diesen heissen Gumbo kocht nur eine Band: THE JAILBIRD BEAT!

Alle Bandmitglieder trieben in ihrer Vergangenheit schon so einige Wesen und Unwesen im Country, Rock'n'Roll, Bluegrass oder Folk:

Otis Bluetrain an der Hauptstimme pflegte lange Zeit mit den VENTILATORS den Ska – bis er schliesslich mit THE TENNESSEE FOUR dem Johnny Cash-Sound fröhnte.

Seine treuen Gehilfen waren hierbei zwei weitere Haudegen von THE JAILBIRD BEAT: Rico „la guitara inflamable“ und Marty O'Horny am Drums, selten um einen Schlag verlegen. Beide früher mit

[] Cajun Tales

den TUMBLEWEEDS richtig schön herumgekommen. Mago fegte am Kontrabass mit ZENO TORNADO (Voodoo Rhythm) über ganz Europa und zupfte für die DEAD BROTHERS, DELANEY DAVIDSON, MENIC, MAMA ROSIN, SLAM & HOWIE u.v.m. Jimmy drückt nicht nur am Piano mit - auch zieht er im jeweils rechten Moment sein Akkordeon, genau so schön wie füher bei MIDNIGHT TO SIX. Und nicht zuletzt ist da noch zuletzt Andy Gator an der Pedal Steel und Slide Gitarre: 15 Jahre lang war er der Motor der HONKY TONK PICKERS.

Somit ist von vorherein klar: Diese Suppe sollte man nicht alleine auslöffeln!
