CD - Hold On Tight - Till The Curtain Falls
Munich has always been a cradle for 50s rockabilly and country music. In February 2011 the trio "Hold On Tight" was founded here, with two fine guitars and a pounding bass. They play authentic rockabilly with a catching country groove. After the vinyl-EP "Choo Choo Rockabilly" (2012) and winning the Authenticity Award at Rockabilly Rumble 2014 in Pullman City, a longplay album was recorded in 2015, which now is released on Part Records.

Hold On Tight are inspired by famous and less famous pioneers of 50s Rock & Roll. Down-To-Earth stringworks and grassroots songwriting reflects their goals. Among the 15 songs are only two cover songs - the other 13 are own compositions. The lyrics are not only about the genre-typical women's issues, but also process their own experiences, and historical wild west issues.
Recorded by Johnny Bluth (aka Johnny Trouble) at Running Gun Studio, mastered by Axel Praefcke (Cherry Casino) at the world-famous Lighning Recorders in Berlin, with Johnny Trouble as a guest musician on Harp and Percussion. Nothing was left to chance.
The sound is reminiscent of an old steam locomotive which goal-oriented paves their way.
Ever since, the band having a lot of fun, doing live shows, festival gigs, but also supporting great bands, like The Blue Cats, Restless, Frenzy, The Quakes and others.
