Out now; the debut album of The Swingers.
An album with a unique sound. The 13 catchy pop-cover songs on the album were given a special treatment and were recorded with acoustic instruments only such as double bass, cajon, guitar and bluesharp.
The Swingers are an acoustic trio from Rotterdam, Holland with a unique sound. They play well-known songs (and very well-known songs), that range from rock 'n roll, to blues, to disco and even sing-a-long songs.
The bandmembers Martin Voogd (guitar and vocals), Marcel Verbaas (double bass and vocals) and Robert van Driesten (drums, bluesharp and vocals) have toured around the world and played with such artists as Paul Burlison, Rocky Burnette, Albert Lee, Jim Weider and James Burton and played in several bands before they finally formed The swingers at the end of 2009.
The album was recorded in their own professional studio in Rotterdam and was mastered by Hay Zeelen (Joe Jackson, Level 42, Alain Clarke, Marco Borsato), which resulted in a very good sounding album. This is an enhanced CD with a videoclip of "I love Rock 'n' Roll".
