ABC is having a small summer break, but we'll be back with a bang:

Friday Sept. 2nd.
Amsterdam BeatClub "Wild Records Show" at Paradiso 

Avondvullende show van het roemruchte Amerikaanse WILD Records label!

live: Gizzelle (VS) & Tornado Beat! (NL) & dj Reb Kennedy

Gizzelle's eerste release "Baby Please don't go" werd in 2005 uitgebracht op WILD Records. Deze plaat kreeg veel lovende kritieken, zowel in de Rock 'n Roll-scene als de Soul-scene en is inmiddels een collector's item. Gizzelle's eerste album "Devil or Angel" bevat een mix van R'nB uit de jaren 50 en 60, Soul en Rock 'n Roll. Andere releases zijn "I'm a good woman"  en het album "Rhythm & Soul". Gizzelle is gezegend met een van de beste stemmen in de scene en weet als geen ander het publiek te boeien.

Tornado Beat! werd in 2019 opgericht. Ze spelen louter eigen werk: rauwe Rhythm 'n Blues, Boogie, Rock-a-Billy en een enkele soulvolle ballad. In 2021 stonden twee tracks op de WILD Records compilatie "The Young Breed" en tijdens deze avond wordt de eerste officiële vinyl singel gereleased: "He's a Wolf / Don't Take It Too Far", wederom op het WILD Records label.

Om het feest compleet te maken staat "Mr. WILD Records" Reb Kennedy achter de platenspelers om zijn favoriete tracks te draaien!

| open 19.30-23.00 | 20:15 Tornado Beat! | 21:30 Gizzelle |
