Live band on saturday evening: Billie and the Kids
Billie and the Kids is an 8-piece band that plays 1950s rhythm & blues, jump blues and 50s style New Orleans r&b. This makes for a unique combo nowadays for the amazing 26-year-old female singer, as well as the 3-piece brass section, capturing a vintage groove, like back in the heydays of Fats Domino, Little Richard or Ruth Brown.
Have also a look at the website of Billie and the Kids.
Listen zu their song "Tough Lover" on youtube.
DJs: Stehpan Wuthe, Siegi Spiel and others
Stephan Wuthe from Berlin will play for us from his collection of shellac records. Stehpan is known not only for his extensive music collection, but also for his way of composing the music for the dancers. Let Stephan surprise you. We are delighted that Stephan will be at the BBDC this year!
Siegi Spiel is one of Munich's most famous DJs for Boogie Woogie, Rock'n'Roll and Lindy Hop. Siegi is a longtime DJ at the BB-DanceCamp and also sells CDs on the vintage market at the BBDC. Take a look and get some treasure!
Marcus Rosendahl aka DJ Big Papa Mac will present the best Boogie, Rhythm'n'Blues, Early Rock, Doo-Wop and Swing from his collection. Look forward to dance about the danceable and the crazy, and the swedish kind of turning records.
We have also planned more DJs, which will bring the two dance floors to the quake on Saturday evening.
