In that case...

The Barnstompers might well be the band for you!!

The authentic music of the Barnstompers is based on the late 40s , 50’s traditional American Country-Boogie, Western-Swing, Honky Tonk and Rockabilly. Due to their vast repertoire the Barnstompers is a very versatile band with a original choice of songs. A combination of fine musicianship, danceable rhythm and strong vocals make them quite an exciting band. The band enjoys popularity both at home in the Netherlands and abroad. Shows in Belgium, Germany, England, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Wales, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Finland, Austria, Greece, Croatia, Denmark and a couple of successful Californian tours are witness to the fact that they are a much requested band in many parts of the world. Alongside the regular Barnstompers shows they did multiple successful tours and one offs with rockabilly legends of the 50s, including Sid King & Brother Billy, Sonny Fisher, Joe Clay, Lew Williams and Rudy Grayzell. The Barnstompers also back up contemporary singers in the Rockabilly/Country field, such as Charlie Thompson, Ronnie Hayward and Junior Marvel.
