JR and his blue train
In January 2013 singer Jan and bassist Christian met for domestic jam sessions,where they played mainly Johnny Cash titles. It quickly became clear that this must be more.Then Marius was brought into the boat for the electric guitar and Philipp for the drums. JR & his bluetrain played on the title of Johnny Cash & the Tennessee Three. Meanwhile, they also play music from other country and rock n roll musicians and especially their own titles.At the end of 2015 JR & his blue train released their first CD ‚Guilty as charged‚, which also contains their own songs. The band has finished the work on their first EP, which exclusively contains their own songs in autumn 2016.The Busted EP was released on Backfire Records in March 2017.JR & his blue train have a special focus on the proximity to the audience and offer not only good music but ample entertainment, in the sense of Johnny Cash. Country or Rock’n’Roll:‚The train kept a rollin‘ ‚.
Ball ’n‚ Chain
Means to be bound as much as.It does not matter whether the musicians are tied to the music of the 50s or the audience to the musicians.One thing is certain, the three musicians have fun and joy of well-played rockabilly music.Ball ’n‘ Chain with Marc on vocals & contrabass, Patrick on drums and Stefan on the guitar, do not just master their instruments, but also the multi-voice singing invites for dancing and singing.Since 2007, Ball ’n‘ Chain have played at major festivals but also in small clubs and it is a pleasure to find the musicians in the middle of their audience.Ball ’n‘ Chain has been an integral part of Backfire Records since 2017.
