The Rechords

Hillbilly Boogie, Western Swing, Bluegrass, Rhythm & Blues, Rock-a-billy…’s all there… it’s all apart of what has become THE RECHORDS. Throw in lead vocals from all of the members at some point during the sets and spice it up with a mix of sweet 2 part and sometimes 3 part harmonies reminiscent of those Bluegrass and Hillbilly bands of days gone by……then delivered with the passion and enthusiasm of a 60’s Garage / Swamp Rock band. Sometimes laid back and feeling like your riding the range in an old Western, then other times wild and crazy like you’re in some adrenilin induced 50’s Juke Joint.
But don’t think this is just some Retro showband trying to revive the past….no siree…’s about capturing the essence and the soul of the music and the performers from the 30’s through to the 60’s. Using this to inspire our own tunes and the way we perform them, it was a wholesome and less complicated moment in time and the performances were raw and heart-felt, fun and simple enough for all to enjoy. It’s surprising just find out who digs the music, it has a wider appeal than we had ever thought.
