Bon Scotch (NL)

Bon ScotchBand. 70’s Hardrock, AC-DC cover band (Bon Scott songs only)
Mari Maas: Vocals
Geert Sanders: Drums
Michel Joosten: Guitar
Mario Peeters: Guitar, vocals
Theodoor van Heugten: Bass, vocals

You might think; why a 70’s Hardrock band in Chulahoma Tour support’s roster? Well, I started my musical journey in the early 80’s, AC-DC with Bon Scott was, and still is, one of my al-time favorites. I’ve seen and heard a lot of AC-DC cover bands in the years that folowed, some better than others, but never before a band that came so close to the original AC-DC sound like BON SCOTCH. This band plays Bon Scott songs only…. Book ‘em and you’ll understand why!
Since the band was founded at the end of 2009, Bon Scotch has undergone a considerable evolution. From local bars to the bigger venues, packed festivals and several shows abroad, everyone is quite impressed by this rendition of the AC / DC 70’s sound.
Bon Scott is no longer among us, but you would almost forget when listening to Bon Scotch. A show with all the songs from the Bon Scott era, and a sound that’s almost a good as the real thing; there’s no better way to lull you back into 70’s than at a show with Bon Scotch.
It’s A Long Way To The Top, If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll!!


Black River Bluesman & Bad Mood Hudson (FI)

Black River Bluesman & Bad Mood HudsonDuo. Blues, Psychoblues, Garage Blues

Jukka Juhola: vocals, Lowbow guitars
Antti Huttunen: vocals, drums

Black River Bluesman & Bad Mood Hudson play their Blues in the deep woods and frozen swamps of the muddy Black River Delta way up North in cold Finland. Their unrefined, electric Blues have been compared to the rough sounds of the Mississippi Hill Country artists as well as to anything between Tom Waits and Black Keys or psychoblues and garage. Whatever the influences may be, they play their animal Blues with no compromises – just the way they  feel.
Black River Bluesman has always walked his own path, producing his uncompromising and original Altblues with little regard for the mainstream.

Like the highway it’s named after, the musicians of 61 Ghosts, have collectively done their time on the road. 61 Ghosts is an edgy roots- rock, Badlands Americana, three-piece band, combining the talents of singer-songwriter Joe Mazzari, drummer Dixie, and bass player JD Sipe.

He also recorded and toured with Johnny Thunders of the NY Dolls and the Heartbreakers fame for three years, and appeared on three of Johnny’s albums.
After drummer Dixie stumbled upon a film documentary called “Deep Blues” and hearing, for the first time, Mississippi hill country blues legends Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside, it changed her life so much, Dixie vowed to teach herself to play drums in the style of her newly found heroes.
J.D. Sipe has played his signature swampy roots music in bars, saloons and dancehalls throughout the Midwest and southern states for more than 40 years.


The Mighty Yaya (NL)

The Mighty YayaBand. Stonerblues, garage rock/blues.
Louis van Empel: guitar, vocals
Aart van der Wulp: harp
Harmen de Bresser: bass, vocals
Gabriël Peeters: drums

The Mighty Ya-Ya has landed again, bringing its second album: “Magnum Sonus”.
And it’s a BIG, BIG, BIG sound indeed! Way heavier than its predecessor.
Garagerock with a twist, stonerblues or completely-over-the-top, call it what you want but the Ya-Ya tells it like it is: ever groovy, perpetually rockin’ and dripping with tons of soul…
Say what? Well, like QOTSA and John Lee Hooker recording to the same mic. Tom Waits in full Zulu-dress leading a seventies Afro-beat combo. Jack White and King Crimson thumping a one-chord rock opera with all amps turned beyond healthy and Arthur Lee Love disassembling “Stairway to Heaven” assisted by a gang of Cossacks.
Strap in and experience the Mighty Ya-Ya slammin’ its drums, rattlin’ its strings and blowin’ its reeds into orbit, disregarding a safe reentry into earth’s atmosphere. To ignorantly go where no man has gone before: 12 tracks of ferocious energy traveling the stratosphere at supersonic speeds.
So put that needle in the groove: here’s something that’s gonna make you move!

Teleferik is a new rock combination of these two routes.
