Agustí Burriel vocals, Cesc Miró trumpet, Ignasi Poch tenor sax, Sergi Franch baritone sax, Manuel Casado guitar, Marc Ferrer piano, Joan Ramon Vega double bass, Emilio Torres drums.More than 20 years ago now, a few young rockers here began playing jump ‘n’ jive, born in America in the fifties, following the style of rock pioneer Bill Haley. In those days they were called Chevy & the Hot Wheels and, moving closer to black styles like rhythm & blues, they became an octet who, today, combine their own tunes with cover versions of music by the likes of Louis Prima, Big Joe Turner, Louis Jordan, Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris. A great festival of rhythm, ideal for opening the Sax-O-Rama Festival.
