Looking 4 a band playing rock'n'roll

Hi all,
Guys, I need your help! I'm looking for a band playing blues and rock'n'roll, some old good music of 70-s - for my husband's anniversary in June. Fribourg and Vaud would be perfect! Ok, all Switzerland is not that big!
I'd appreciate your help a lot - any recommendations are very welcome! Well - you also will be invited for a great party if you can bring a band with you!
Thank you!
Kumana

Re: Looking 4 a band playing rock'n'roll

Hello there

I am an Irish musician living in Luzern and could possibly organise something... I play in a few different style groups but much will depend on your budget? We can supply all of our own PA equipment for guests up to 300 people and transportation should not be a problem. Let me know what you think.

All for now

Brendan

Hi Brendan,
Thank you for reply! Can you give me a link to your band please? It's difficult to say something before I listen to you
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Kumana

Hi Kumana.
For the exact type of stuff you want, ie rock'n'roll ... Chuck Berry, Elvis etc we don't have any recordings because this would be a session gig were i get the right people together for such an event... but listen to the band profile in our facebook page, but remember this is our own stuff not the music we'd be playing for you. http://www.facebook.com/penguinsbychoice
also here is a link to another group i play in if you want to go more in an Irish direction

Hi Brandan,
Thanks for links! Well, rock'n'roll is much more than just Elvis Let's say ZZ TOP or STATUS QUO - I meant somthing more like that to tell the truth. So - thanks again for your offer but it's not what I'm really looking for.
Good luck!

No problem at all but if this is the case i know just the band. It is a Basel based group. I can give you the number if you send me a Private Message me... i think they could be perfect for you.

All for now

Brendan

This is the BEST Rock`n Roll band I`ve ever seen/heard. Their cover numbers are indistinguishable from the originals!


Click on the links and hear some of their recordings.

Re: Looking 4 a band playing rock'n'roll

Hi Kumana

I'm playing in a cover band called "circle of time". We're on the stage for more than 1,5 years and have more than 30 concerts behind (private parties, big corporate parties, birthdays, weddings etc.)
I beleive we're playing pretty much what you're looking for (see the songlist attached).

If you have interest, feel free to contact me.
Some demos are here:

Cheers,
Dima
