THE HI-STAKES (Rhythm ’n’ Blues)
The Hi-Stakes, featuring their iconic frontman Sam Ghezzi, is a quintet based in Amsterdam. The band makes the audience jump, dance and shout to Rhythm and Blues inspired by Louis Jordan, dream away to the sweet sound of Blues Ballads in the heritage of Percy Mayfield and shake the hips to the swinging songs in the style of a young Ray Charles. Original tunes, with lyrics full of irony and passion, played authentically from a vast range of popular genres of the time, be it a lyrical blues ballad or an explosive old school rhythm 'n blues number; in other words, their repertoire covers anything in between the jazz and the blues worlds. The Hi-Stakes features Sam Ghezzi on vocals and tenor saxophone, Gideon Tazelaar on tenor saxophone, Linus Eppinger on guitar, Cesar Puente on upright bass and Joe Korach on drums. The particular combination of two tenor saxophones as horn section shows their own timber and sound in a unique and distinctive way.
The HelloWeeners (60's garage R'nR)
The crazy creatures from the Netherregents are returning to Paradiso to play their super fun-a-delic mix of 60’s Sonic rock'roll and fuzzy garage GoGo-sounds.. it's a late night party all the way!

Amsterdam BeatClub presents:
"Do It All Night - The Sound of Tardam Records"

(Tardam Records / Acid Jazz Records) release party!

live: the Skepticals (Diabolik!) & 44 Shakedown
dj's: Goffredo Santovito (It.) & Asnavoura

TARDAM RECORDS is a vinyl record-label, based in TARanto (IT) & AmsterDAM (NL). It was founded in 2014 by 3 deejay friends: Goffredo Santovito, Fabrizio Carrieri & Mikkel v/d Meulen. Tardam Records is specialised in releasing 7" records with a good dance feeling, like boogaloo, modjazz, soul, ska, r’n’b & funk. Music that can be enjoyed both on the dancefloor or at home, by collectors, music lovers and deejays. Having been followers of London based AcidJazz Records since the 80's, Tardam is happy and proud to release the compilation "Do It All Night - The Sound of Tardam Records" in cooperation with their dear friends of ACID JAZZ RECORDS !
Featured on this album (LP) are: The Skepticals, The Mighty Typhoons, Beulah Enser, Viky de Santis, Working Voodoo Club, The Spinshots, Rosie Stevens with Dry Riverbed Trio, The Uppertones, 44 Shakedown.


With a heavy Hammond organ, grooving guitar, honking sax, fat bass & funky drums, The Skepticals play a mix of various styles: mod-jazz, new orleans, spy-fi, rhythm 'n blues. The repertoire consists mostly of original compositions, in which occasionally the theremin is haunting the house. Their suspense tune 'DIABOLIK' is one of the tracks featured on the "Do It All Night - The Sound of Tardam Records" compilation. This quintet has the Skeps edge.. Sho 'Nuff!


44 SHAKEDOWN guarantees authentic 1940s and 1950s Rhythm & Blues and Jump Blues: the energetic rock'n'roll that turned roadhouses and juke joints upside down, long before Elvis conquered the world with this kind of music.These five men from Rotterdam and surroundings alternate dragging sax sliders and danceable jump blues with obscure gems and own work that is not inferior to this.
Expect steaming guitar licks, ripping saxes, fat swamp blues and New Orleans Jump, with inspiration from well-known and lesser-known heroes such as Louis Jordan, Fats Domino, Joe & Jimmy Liggins, Jimmy McCracklin and Louis Prima. They have a single out on Tardam Records: Giggle Water / Ramrod (TA-009)

great music, fab cocktails, cool dancing & party-time!!!
