Eddie Cochran Rock n' Roll Festival 2012
Eddie Cochran Rock n’ Roll Festival, Chippenham, Neeld Hall

April 7, 2012

Eddie Cochran Rock 'n' Roll Festival 2012

C’MON EVERYBODY!

 

 The 52nd Eddie Cochran Rock n’ Roll Festival will take place in Chippenham on the 7th of April! Join us for an evening of jumping, jiving, twisting and shouting as the very best rock n’ roll bands in the UK come to play the Neeld Hall, Chippeham!

 Eddie Cochran’s influence on rock n’ roll is immeasurable. His music has been widely covered by artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zepplin and the Beach Boys, to name but a few. Many thought that, had he not died so tragically in a car accident on the roads of Chippenham, he might have gone on to become the next Elvis Presley. So every year the residents of Chippenham organise an annual festival, to celebrate the life and music of Eddie. Come and join us for what promises to be a spectacular evening! 


Bands include:

- The Earl Jackson Band

- Cheaterslicks

- FlipTopFloozies

- Lucas and the Dynamos

and music from the famous Wildcat Pete! as well as this, there will be food, drinks, and a free jive-dancing lesson at the beginning of the day! 


Ticket: £25.00 (subject to availability)

Get ‘em before they sell out!


Available at:

The Tourist Infomation Centre - +44 (0)1249 706333

The Old Road Tavern - +44 (0)1249-652094

Eddie Cochran Memorial Night at Maloe Melo

Eddie Cochran (Minnesota, 3 oktober 1938 - Engeland, 17 april 1960)

live: Sugar Ray Dogs (Italië) - Rockabilly
The Body Bags (Ned) - Psychobilly

deejays: Charley Rhythm / Ir.Vendermeulen
 

Amsterdam BeatClub brengt een feestelijk eerbetoon aan een van de allergrootste rockers allertijden:

Eddie Cochran

Cochran stierf precies 50 jaar geleden, slechts 21 jaar jong, in een auto-ongeluk tijdens een Engelse tour.
Mede-inzittende en boezemvriend Gene Vincent wist het ongeluk op miraculeuze wijze te overleven

maar was voor zijn verdere leven zwaar getraumatiseerd en kreupel.

Eddie Cochran is niet alleen dé Cult-held in de Rock 'n Roll-scene,

maar was een zeer getalenteerd zanger/gitarist/songwriter

en uitvinder van nieuwe opname technieken.

Tot op de dag van vandaag wordt zijn muziek wereldwijd gedraait.

Tijdens deze avond zullen 2 geweldige Rockabilly bands optreden,

beide schatplichtig aan Cochran zoals elke R'n'R-artiest dat in feite is.

Sugar Ray Dogs komt helemaal uit Italië over voor een authentieke Rockabilly-set,

de Hollandse nozems van The Body Bags spelen nieuwe Psychobilly.

Verder verzorgen Amsterdam BeatClub-deejays Ir.Vendermeulen en

Charley Rhythm de steevast swingende rebellen-muziek!
...C'mon Everybody and let's get together tonight!

 entree E7 - aanvang 22:00 - 04:00

Eddie Cochran Rock n Roll 60s Night - The Hungry Horse

APRIL 16 2005, CHIPPENHAM

 TWO of Chippenhams most popular bands, The Zig-Zag Band and Halle Bop Trio, are getting together for a night of Rock 'n' Roll 60s music this month.

The event takes place at The Hungry Horse, Bath Road, Chippenham, and the the date coincides with the fatal car crash that killed Eddie Cochran age 22, just outside the venue in 1960.

The music starts at 9pm and entry to the event is free.

Mike Morrissey from The Zig-Zag Band said: '' We have over 50 gigs booked this year but this was the first one to go in our diary. We will play a mixture of 50s and 60s music with a 'good time' theme.

"Come along, sing, dance and be merry and celebrate the influential music from Eddie's era.''
