Custom Rockabilly No. 9 at The Troubadour, Saturday December 8, 2007 | Pix by Pete

Paulie & The Crazy Rhythm Boys
put in an excellent show of traditional rockabilly with a strong Euro flavour. This was Paulie's debut gig as a singer-rhythm-guitarist, as his day job is on bass with The Ten Fours. Paulie proved there's more to his rockabilly talent than just slappin' his bull fiddle. Paulie is a dude who appreciates, listens to and absorbs a world-wide range of rockabilly music and now he's giving it all back with his new combo. The Crazy Rhythm Boys of Jon Flynn, Dangerous Dan and Coojee Timms were also in top form, making the show very memorable and musical. Well done Paulie, I'm looking forward to your next show.

Mexico Bender were another new band on the night and they put in a solid and loud set of rockin' country and country-punk. These cats must have been rehearsing for months, as their show was really tight and right on the money. Can't wait to see them again. It's great to see that Brisbane has so many new bands on the scene.

Final act of the night was The Barnyard Ramblers, fronted by Pat Capocci from Sydney. I didn't get to see much of their show, but from what I did see, they went off with another top notch set of cool skool rockabilly. Let's hope Pat comes back to Brisbane soon.

The end of the night came around too quickly, so DJ Lori Lee fired up the music, playing a truckload of rockin' tunes to keep the rockabilly rolling. The club turned into our own private party, as half the crowd had split and half the staff were finished, so it came down to the hard core rockers and the dj, so we cranked up the volume and really had some fun.

This was the final Custom Rockabilly for 2007 and it went out with bang.
