Dinneen Photography: “Make every shot count”!

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 7 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 392 views

I have always loved the Rockabilly culture and music.

I have always been a big fan of photographers from the age of film. The beauty of black and white film and how it drew your eye to the essence of the photo. The drama and love affair between black and white and the intrigue it built in the composition. I also admired the photographers from the film genre that they had to make every shot count! They had 24, maybe 36 exposures or shots in one roll. I have always gone into a digital shoot with the same philosophy as the photographers from the film genre “Make every shot count”! It just happens that I love shooting with my manual camera as well as my digital camera. There are conveniences of the digital world but I make a point of not relying on post work. The art of lighting is something that cannot be replicated organically by a post program or photoshop. I also really enjoy spending the time lighting that is why I usually tell subjects or models not to touch my work if they post, most are very respectful of my photography.

Doo Wop: it all started with guys under a streetlight, in de ghetto’s of America

Doo Wop. Harmonic multiplevoiced sounds, which started in the ghetto’s of America in the early fifties, by African-americans. Soon it was picked up by white groups and caught mainstream popularity, being a mix of pop and R&B(the early days R&B, not Beyonce 😛 ). It caught my attention because of the ’73 movie “American Graffiti”, a movie by one of my favorite directors George Lucas. Groups like the Dells, the Vikings, the Moonglows, Danny and the Juniors and off course Dion and the Belmonds really got me into this music. During my time on computerschool I remember playing a unofficial radiostation called Every day the same songs, but it didn’t matter to me.

I had my first contact with this incredible band the Roomates, a Doo Wop band from England, when I started to become a Ted. On one of my dad’s cd’s, I found a song called You Could Have Told Me. It has been my favorite ever since, and im searching like hell for the single! I became crazy of this band, white Doo Wop with their own sound. So I contacted the guitarplayer of the band, Steve, and we started talking. I really wanted to hear the new album, so i could review it!

Pinup of the week: Miss Dusti Reins

Posted by Dee-Ann On July - 17 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 383 views


I’m Miss Dusti Reins. I’m 33 years old a mother of 7 wonderful children. I’m from Alberta Canada. I’m new to pin up and trying to get my feet wet. I’ve been very passionate about pin up for a couple years now. I love the way it makes me feel. It feels very natural to me, makes me feel sexy.

Ivan Johnny, send us this great interview with the owner of Martin’s Garage record label from Slovenia

  1. Can you tell us something about yourself?

I’m a music lover in the first place and also a record collector. I got fanaticly into music when I was 9 years old, started with Elvis, but I was also exploring a lot of different genres. The wish of being a record label or manager, DJ was always growing inside me. I was spending all my money on records, tapes and CDs … in the nineties I used my knowledge of music when I started to work for an authors society and a few years later for a publisher and a  record label. In 2004 I started to DJ, so music was always and still is my main focus. Read the rest of this entry »

The Paladins live at Lantaarn Venster Rotterdam

Posted by Dee-Ann On May - 29 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 448 views

Last year the Paladins visited Lantaarn Venster Rotterdam, but the gig was cancelled due to a leaking swimmingpool just above the venue. “Water was dripping on the electrical system” Dave recalls. The trio has been working on a new album. It has been a while since the previous album was out. During rehearsals some time ago, Dave was getting a powerdrink for Thomas. Thomas played a great sounding surf riff on the guitar. So the instrumental “Powershake” was born. While talking about all kinds of topics, new songs kept on rolling about those topics too. So that’s why this album is a bit different than the ones before. The song: “Who sold the water to the waterman”, is about the dry spell they had couple of years ago in the San Diego area. Farms could not grow their crops without water, and a farmer who had a pipeline of water running underneath his house, could not use it because it belonged to another man who claimed to be the owner of that water.

Dave took out a custom built Fender guitar. Thomas found the guitar neck in a pawn shop in Dallas Texas, which was a bit longer than a regular guitar neck. He bought it for Dave and when he showed it to the Fender company, they were surprised. It came from a prototype 1967 guitar. They asked if they could use it to build a new guitar. He agreed. Instead they build a bass guitar. When they asked him to come over to receive this first new model, Dave declined. He wanted a guitar. So they handed it over to Pete Townsend.

Dave and Thomas were full of fun stories during the show and ofcourse as always the audience was blown away by their great perfomance and the typical Paladins guitar sound of Dave Gonzalez. Songs of their new album “New World” sounded more mature but still Paladins. The crowd sang like a big choir on Keep on loving me “Whoooa yeah!”

Hoorn Rock and Roll Sunday: the final Big Bang!

Posted by Dee-Ann On May - 21 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 486 views

I was a teenager in 1986 when I first visited Hoorn Rock and Roll Sunday (NL) by train to get blown away by the whole city breathing rock and roll music. A big fifties market, carshows, live music coming out of almost every bar. My best friend and me were walking in rock and roll paradise. After a few years the festival ended.

But in 2007 I was so happy to hear that a new organisation (Anneke Knip, Maartje Brandt, Michel Koppies, Miriam Bosman and many more) picked up the pieces and this amazing festival was back on its feet! Read the interview with Anneke:

The town square is the center of the whole festival, but bars all over town are filled with live rock and roll bands. Every year they got more bands. Since Desperados became the main sponsor, more than 20 Dutch and international bands are present. This year Mike Sanchez (UK), Louis King (AU), The Lustre Kings (USA) and Marcel Riesco (USA) are brought from overseas to shake up the city. A photobooth in an old VW is ready to take your picture, you can watch the dance demonstration from Jump Up Boogie Woogie, men get their quiffs greased up by Sleezy Tiki Barbershop and DeeJay Thomas will take care of the after party.

Jesus Evil Highway: The Ghostwood Recordings

Posted by Dee-Ann On May - 8 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 911 views

In the past few months I heard a lot of people mention the bluegrass band Jesus Evil Highway. The name is all across social media too, so I had to see what the fuss is all about. I visited their vinyl album release party at Posse Bar Rotterdam on May 4th and got the chance to ask them a few questions.

Where did you guys meet?

Most of us knew each other for years, being family (brothers), high school friends or from playing together in other bands, before we ended up playing with Jesus Evil Highway. The last one to join us was ‘Uncle Paulie’ as we like to call him, but that’s already a couple of years back, and it feels like we know him for years.

They play rhythm ‘n’ blues spiced up with swing, jazz and rockabilly. They love to mix different types of roots music and make it sound unique.

Rhythm and blues/ Jazz is the style I like. She made me cursious. Who is SaraLee, and what makes her tick?
