BIG JOHN BATES & The Voodoo Dollz deliver a scorching hotrod burlesque rock 'n' roll blues party with the help of the upright bass spanker sCare-oline and the Voodoo Dollz dancers! From greasers into blues, punks into the 50's and rockers that like it loud, BJB & the Dollz have played for audiences from London to Zurich and Montreal to Los Angeles, with their neo-burlesque movement scoring them headlining gigs in a federal prison in Antwerp, the 10th Annual Psychomeeting in Barcelona and even a House of Blues Halloween party in Vegas! http//

NIM VIND - Formerly a key member of goth rockers Mr. Underhill, Nim Vind's debut CD "The Fashion of Fear" has caused quite a stir in Europe and Germany, with its contagious collection of the finest horror-punk, darkly tinted surf, contagious punk and ghoulish new-wave anthems, all bound together by Nim's inimitable graveyard croon.

The STARBOYS - Jaded and bitter, The Starboys are Cosmic on vocals and bass, Stipe Armageddon Pavic and Attilio Apocalypse Donatiello on The Twin Guitars of Destruction and Mirko (Masterbeater) Pavic on drums. Fueled equally with humour and hatred and influenced by your Mom, The Starboys deliver metal and punk mixed with a bit of rockabilly and a keen sense of humour!
