ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With 3 Rhythm Bomb-only bonus recording, the boys whipped up another 14 tracks for their second full-length album. Ten Maki originals were newly-recorded, along with songs by Marty Robbins, Fred Netherton, Jim Nesbitt, and the Jewels, that make up a rockin' and swingin' combination of sounds. Tichy and Bruce return with a vengeance, to lay down their best performances yet. Staying true to the trio's artistic licenses (yes, they've been renewed) everything was cut without overdubbing and sent straight to WSDS studios, where Keith Jason oversaw the addition of Ampex tape echo.


Bones Maki & the Sun Dodgers perform rockabilly music with the same instrumentation that the music was born from: electric guitar, string bass and acoustic guitar. You'll notice that a drum kit was left out ... but once you hear their music, you won't miss it! This trio has a full rock-a-billy sound that refers to records made in the mid-1950s, including the energy and lowdown feeling of that raucous noise. Since 2001, the Sun Dodgers have been swinging high and tearing it down around Detroit, Michigan, and in selected cities across the Great 48.

Grounded in western swing and rockabilly music, Craig "Bones" Maki sings, plays and writes tunes that reminds one of sounds that flourished during the 1950s. However, if you ask him, he'll tell you that the music isn't dead, but thrives in venues where older musicians still perform - rather than mainly large stages and TV, good music can still be found in small clubs and fraternal halls. Entertainers like the Tennessee-born Eddie Jackson (1926-2002) of Detroit may perform for decades. In 1995, Bones cut his teeth by sitting in with Jackson at gigs around Detroit's east side. The following year, he helped found the Big Barn Combo, a rockabilly band that played all over the Midwest and northern Europe during its five-year run. Bones is now fronting the Sun Dodgers, where the good-time western and rockabilly music of a bygone era is presented with renewed vitality and vim alongside originals that continue the joyful noise begun two generations ago.

A veteran of the Detroit 1990s rockabilly scene, Kenny Bruce has grown into a versatile and courageous string bass player. Kenny has hauled a doghouse all over the States and Europe with the Big Barn Combo; he moonlights with a jazz trio; and occasionally, he sits in with uppity bluegrass musicians. Bruce is well-known in contemporary rockabilly music circles for his warm demeanor and wicked bass-slapping.

Playing guitar with virtuosity that many mature pickers wish for, Graham Tichy is, at the tender age of twenty-something, a whiz. You'll hear the likes of Merle Travis, Scotty Moore, Joe Maphis and Hank Garland emanating from his large fingertips with jaw-dropping dexterity. He makes men stomp and women wail. This young man has a great future in store within the music racket ... need we say more?

Ride Again
This band knows how to make music! Love the sound, I swear I could see the base fiddle being plucked! I ride a motorcycle and enjoyed Up Through the Gears!!!!

Milo1956

I forgot I was 50 and swore I was back in '56 !!
I slipped the CD into my car CD player, and I swear my car grew fins ! I loved every track, and couldn't help but replay it time after time. I rminded me when every biker rode Truimphs and BSAs, and rockabilly blasted out of every juke box in highway cafes. You gotta get this one, don't pass up your chance of reliving the best days ever.

This CD rocks !!

Curtis

Rock-a-Billy like it should be!
This CD is just another example of the great music from the days of slick backed hair,cuffs in you pant legs and cigs rolled up in the sleeve of your t-shirt! Only this is New stuff ( 13 originals of 17 tracks ) that will have you toe tappin,rockin and dancin just like you were back in the 50's!
