THE TWO TONE TRACKS (2017)
Music-Style: Rhythm 'n Blues, Jump Blues
Netherlands best Rhythm 'n Blues band from the nineties is back on stage again!
The eleven musicians of Mr. R & B and his oulshakers in the nineties of the last century were a hugely popular rock'n roll band institution in the Dutch blues scene, which still enjoys cult status today.
The band's first live CD opened doors to all major festivals. One of her highlights was the 1992 tour support for the King of Blues B.B. King.
Studies, career paths and family start-ups led to the premature end of the successful and popular band.
But it took only a Facebook post by the former trombonist to inspire a large part of the old band for a fresh start 20 years later.
In almost identical line-up, a great comeback is now celebrated with their new longplayer "The Two Tone Tracks".
With Nancy van Deursen a real stroke of luck as a frontwoman was brought into the band. And their sound is superb and as alive as ever.
Quick-living rhythm & blues, rapid jive, jump blues and swing in the tradition of the great shouters of the 40s and 50s presented here with much fire and elegant light-footedness making Mrs. R & B and the Soulshakers a gem of the retro blues music scene.
The recipe for their music is still the same: to revive the old Rhythm & Blues and Jump 'n Jive. The brand new arrangements by Mylène Schrijen make the four-part brass section sound like a big band.
And brand new from Mrs. R & B and the Soulshakers, the sound of the Hammond organ complements the sound of this high-profile blues big band.
Dance to classics like Roy's Brown's "Cadillac Baby" and Etta James's "Good Rocking Daddy" or the 80's hit of the Powder Blues Band with their "Boppin the Blues." Mrs. R & B And The $ oulshakers is wonderful, intoxicating blues & rock 'n' Roll entertainment, and a musical highlight!
Anyone who can stand still while this band is playing is either deaf or mentally disturbed.
The soul shakers and their new singer will burn down the house and become the highlight of any party. - Guaranteed!
