with Horst With No Name, a german garage rock'n'roll band from Hamburg, where action and entertainment are always guaranteed. With five albums on Part Records and over 500 shows nationally and internationally, Horsti (as his parents call him) is a very experienced artist.
He performs at concerts either as a one-man band or, as in our case, he is accompanied live by a drummer (one-man band orchestra).
Born in Hamburg, he is certainly (still) well known to you from the Spätheimkehrer, Bill Billy & His Fabulous Billbillies, Helldriver and other projects. For the virtual Walldorf Weekender, he streamed a concert at the famous "20 Flight Rock" in Hamburg.
Look forward to seeing Horst With No Name live and hearing some of his latest songs from his new album "Shaky".
The band Maria & The Rhythm Boosters was founded in 2020 by Melanie Maria Muñoz-Rodriguez (vocals/guitar) and Paddy Brohammer (guitar/vocals). The line-up is completed by Gerhard Gä Mattes (double bass/e-bass) and Erik Lassmann (drums).
The band name already gives a hint as to where the musical journey is heading. Maria and her boys play classic rockabilly and rock'n'roll with razor-sharp guitar (played by Paddy Brohammer, founding member and composer of many songs by the legendary Kentucky Boys from Lake Constance), slapping double bass and driving drums.
The voice of Andalusian Maria resounds above. She rocks her songs with spanish passion, including many of her own songs as well as those of the heroines and heroes of the 1950s. Santa Muerte seems to have a musical sister in Andalusia.
The first EP "This is a kick" was released in March 2023. It contains four original songs, two of which are in english and one in spanish, as well as an instrumental

celebrate swing like there's no tomorrow. This thought seems to swirl in the heads of the Hamburg boys when they take to the stage. Regardless of the size of the venue and the distance they have to travel to get there, they always give it their all.
Since 2011, "Bun-Jon & The Big Jive" have been delighting audiences at festivals and concerts all over Europe with their program of swing, jump & jive. Wherever these guys perform, the dance floors are packed.
With their refreshing mix of modern pieces, their own compositions and classics by artists such as Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole and Ray Charles, they manage to get even the last tired foot tapping. Do you doubt it?
Then grab your dancing shoes and your partner and see for yourself how the band brings the Astoria Hall to the boil. Frontman Bun-Jon jumps, sings and swings on stage as if there really is no tomorrow.
"Grab your partner, grab your girl and.... rock": be there in time when Udo Kern, Michael Nix, Georg Sheljasov, Guido Jäger, Matthias Friedel, Markus Bak and Bun-Jon Winkelmann ask you to dance.
... are a septet from Barcelona. They have been active since 2009 and radiate a lot of sympathy during their performances with three-part girl group harmony singing, while the professional musicians provide the rhythm on stage with the perfect "wall of sound".
You are whisked away to the girl groups and soloists of the 50s and 60s: The Crystals, Ronettes, Lesley Gore, the Marvelettes, Martha & The Vandellas or even the Shirelles, Chiffons or the Bobbettes send their regards.
The Sparkles present a show that comes very close to the original groups. Their repertoire consists of an exquisite selection of songs ranging from doo-wop and rhythm'n'blues to frat rock, surf and early soul.
You will love them!
Born in Santa Barbara, California, Pep Torres developed a great passion for music in his youth and eventually found his love for the American roots genre.
As a young adult, he also devoted himself to musical theater and eventually made the decision to move to Los Angeles (Hollywood) to devote himself to acting. Through success in commercials, television and film, he became a member of the Screen Actors Guild and remained active in the entertainment industry for many years.
During his life in the big city, his path often crossed the LA rockabilly scene, which was characterized by many fascinating personalities.
As a musician, he was regularly part of this scene and was involved for over ten years as a member of Ray Campi's band alongside his own music project.
Pep Torres is no longer the teenager from Southern California, but spends his fall years in Switzerland. His musical journey has taken him all over Europe, the Eastern Bloc, Scandinavia and, of course, the American continent, including the countries north and south of the USA.
After more than ten years, finally back on stage with us, 2024 supported by our friends from Bricatannia - the Bricats.
has long been (not only) a French rockabilly legend. Viktor discovered his passion for music as a child. In the neo-rockabilly style of the Stray Cats, he soon attracted attention Jacky Chalard (founder of Big Beat Records) says of him:
"Une banane (a quiff), a Gretsch and "Just liké Eddie" romances. This is VIKTOR HUGANET.
He's a boy from Toulouse, cut from the same cloth as the TeenKats, Chris Evans, Victor Leed or Les Alligators. Brian Setzer is his role model, Eddie Cochran his absolute hero. A new LP will soon be released, rock'n'roll cover versions and originals, in French and English... nothing but gems. On Big Beat, the beautiful label of Jacky Chalard"
Viktor played at the Weekender over 10 years ago; the Broadway (in session) was boiling over and it was dripping from the walls"
And one thing is for sure, Viktor Huganet has certainly not lost his rockabilly roots over the years and still knows how to rock!
