Born out of surf motifs and shot straight out of the settings of a spaghetti western, Los Borrachos invokes the spirit of Ennio Morricone with a punk rock fervor. The attacking guitar lines layered on top of a steady rhythm section raises the listener’s temperament into a rebellious ardour. Stay tuned kids because Los Borrachos loves you!!

Slim Sandy has played in bands for over 30 years, and was the original drummer for Ray Condo, and the lead singer and guitarist with the Crazy Rhythm Daddies. In 2012 Slim formed the Hillbilly Boppers, playing roots music from western swing to hillbilly boogie; he’s joined by Willa Mae, who plays washtub bass (and sings songs by Charlene Arthur, Memphis Minnie and more), as well as drummers Soda Pop, and for this show, steel guitar player Tom Hammel.

The Cavaleros are an instrumental Surf Rock’n’Roll trio hailing from Victoria, BC on Canada’s rugged west coast.Graham “Eddie” Cavalero’s wild and driving guitar, German 'Soda Pop' Cavalero’s swinging drums and TC Cavalero’s pulsating bass combine into a melodic and rhythmic rock n'roll cocktail that leaves audiences breathless.The Cavaleros continue to spread their special brand of instrumental Rock n' Roll winning over new fans both regionally and internationally. They also play at some of the biggest Rockabilly Vintage festivals in the world, Viva Las Vegas, Nashville Boogie to name a few and just released their first album Atomic! on Atomic Recordings... which is gaining rave reviews, regularly making the top album lists on radio stations world wide!
