WheelGrinders – Sept. 8th 2018
Back again by popular demand and because we all just really love having this group here at the Pub. A great evening of rockabilly music.
“Wow! Stunning Rockabilly debut album from Canadian trio, The Wheelgrinders…..it goes straight into my list of top 10 Rockabilly albums of 2017!” – Slap That Bass Rockabilly, R&B, Psychobilly, Rock ‘n’ Roll Album Reviews July 2017
“…the trio certainly knows it’s style – the stand up bass slaps, the drums swing like crazy and the Gretsch guitar burns right through.” – Vancouver Sun June 2017
Red hot Vancouver traditional rockabilly trio, The Wheelgrinders have been blazing a trail of grinding rockabilly music across the Lower Mainland of BC and beyond since June of 2016 and made their debut on the international rockabilly scene with a tour of the UK in 2018, including an appearance at the world famous Atomic Vintage Festival at Sywell Aerodrome.
Comprised of three veterans of the Vancouver rockabilly and roots music scene, Greg Tiernan (Vocals/Lead Guitar) Caroline Helmeczi (Vocals/Bass) and Stuart Quayle (Drums) play their own self-penned highly danceable rockabilly numbers and for the hard core rockabilly fans they put their own spin on classic songs by rockabilly icons like Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran and Charlie Feathers.
The band is a regular on the playlists of rockabilly DJs around the world and have been featured in many shows from Canada and the USA to Australia, Spain, France, the UK and even in Moscow, Russia.
Their debut album “Torque-Flite Baby” sold out its first pressing and is now in its second pressing. The Wheelgrinders released their second album “Crank It Hard!” in June 2018.
