THE DELTA BOMBERS (USA)

The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world for 10 years. Driven by a hybrid of 50’s rock and roll fused with swampy blues, country, and rockabilly. The hard touring band’s haunting but powerful voice Chris Moinichen keeps the sounds fresh and always from a new angle. Andrew Himmler on Guitar, Gregorio Garcia on Bass and Micah Malcolm on Drums sway the dynamic up and down all night long with one mission: make it interesting. The goal of the band has always been to build something people who wear gabardine, denim, or mohawks could enjoy together. Based on their tour and festival history they are doing just that.

MISCHIEF! (NL)

Since 1993 Mischief! is one of the most refreshing bands on the scene. It's hard to believe that three musicians can produce such a full sound and perform such a varied set. They play “new” and exciting music with a big dash of 50s energy. A large proportion of the songs are written by the band, producing modern classics that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.

CHERRY CASINO AND THE GAMBLERS (DE)

It´s a rather tough task to try and categorize the music of Cherry Casino and The Gamblers. It certainly is music to dance to and have fun with but also music that features a heavy after-beat and a breathless singing style that listeners of all ages can enjoy. This is the mixture that has helped Cherry and the boys zoom to the top and gain their world-wide reputation as one of the hottest bands in the rock and roll genre! What´s so special about the sound of Cherry Casino? The key is that his recordings sound like a mirror image of his stage appearances. When you drop the needle on your Hi-Fi you could almost think Cherry and The Gamblers were performing right in your living room! These songs are as crisp and refreshing as a glass of ice-cold lemonade on a hot summer day.

SUPERSONICS (NL)

No labels, just rocksteady original songs in all kinds of roots styles. The songs blend between rock 'n roll, country, americana, rhythm 'n blues and rockabilly and even some 60's (garage). The main sound of the band is raw and firm, with two electric lead guitars headlining that sound. The Telecaster and Gretsch guitar blend perfectly together and they throw in a unique sound together. The backbeat is tight with big drums and big ol' upright bass. It creates a thumping sound in very songs and makes it swing like a king!

SUN & LIGHTNING (GERMANY)

In April 2017 six german SUN-Records fanatics went on a field trip through the USA with the goal in mind to record six songs at 706 Union Ave, in the same way it was done back then. Their excitement was huge, but the disappointment was even bigger when they had to find out that the engineer insisted on recording through his computer so they left before they had really started. A few months later they stepped into the rooms of Lightning Recorders in Berlin, the place for high quality analog recordings in Europe. The result was the Sun and Lightning session and after listening to it we decided to bring it to Screamin'. The, not to miss, program will include rare and classic Sun-Recordings as well as period perfect Lightning-Recordings wrapped in an action packed stage show that leaves the audience thrilled and Screamin' for more...
