WE WON ROCKABILLY RUMBLE!

Sat, April 6, 2013, Pullman City (D)

... and the winner is ...: THE FIRES! We were awarded as the winners and won furthermore the prize "Best Of Show". We are very happy having convinced the high level jury and that we could catch the audience. We served a wide range of songs and styles and we enjoyed that hard core rockabillies as well as young and remarkable pretty women were dancing to our sound. 

 

And: Pullman City is worth a trip. When you walk down the main road, you get that cowboy feeling and it might happen that you feel like John Wayne or Lucky Luke for a second (depends on your shape of body).

SUPPORTING SHAKIN’ STEVENS

Thank you ... thank you so much for your enthusiasm last Saturday when we were proud to be the opening act for Shakin' Stevens! Your thundering applause and the empty fanshop more than helped to digest the fact that Shakin's slightly crazy manager wanted to drag us from the stage!  

OPEN AIR IN BELGRAD

Back from Belgrad ... what an experience, what a fantastic, peaceful country, and what an audience! 250'000 people (!) ... words fail us ... an overwhelming atmosphere, surrounded by wonderful people, first class hospitality and superb organisation. We are still speechless. Serbia - we love you!

THANK YOU!

They say that opposites attract ... and this really was the case over the course of our recent performances. From the tough boys in Strasbourg to the smart dancers in Winterthur and elegant uniforms or traditional costumes in St Gallen - all of you danced to our sound till you dropped. Wow! Thank you!
