THE INTERNATIONAL HIGH PRIESTS OF HEP RAVE:
WILL VIHARO...RETROSPECTIVE (NEW YORK...USA)
"Vargas and his combo jazz up the notion of nostalgia with sensuous sass and ballsy rhythm and blues."
JASON CROFT JAVA BACHELOR PAD (CHICAGO / USA)
Jimmy Vargas & the Black Marias ...It's Beatnik Blues..It’s Hollywood and Vine howls, and the lost souls of a thousand hucksters. It’s music that drags you to a down-and-dirty, bump-and-grind world."
DAVID FLINT....REPROBATE MAGAZINE (UK)
Their Latest Single, LAST YEAR'S BLONDE is a sultry seductive slice of vintage sin.
NICHOLAS DIAK...EXOTICA MODERNE (USA)
Suave, swinging and seductive. Jimmy Vargas has the crooning vibe down and the Black Marias are cool school jump and burlesque awesome.
AND THE HEADLINERS....THE SONIC ACES:
World-acclaimed singer-songwriter Wes Pudsey and the Sonic Aces have penned and performed some of the most memorable anthems to emerge from Australia’s independent music scene. Songs now considered modern Rockabilly classics –My Baby Looks Like Betty Page, Maybe, There’s Gonna Be A Rumble, Hepster Daddy-o and many others have taken the Sydney-based rocker around the world several times, backed by his frenetic trio of roots-rock adepts The Sonic Aces. Headlining at music festivals including the Hemsby Weekender in the UK and America’s Viva Las Vegas, Wes has shared the stage with fellow roots-rock members of the legendary Rockabilly group The Stray Cats, and American swing-jump blues legends Royal Crown Revue, to name but a few.
