MIKE BELL & THE BELLTONES - BARE BONE ROCKABILLY
Mike Bell & The Belltones come from Helsinki, Finland and they play 50´s-style rockabilly & rock´n´roll. The band was officially formed in late 2008 and they have since gathered a great following with their live shows all over European festivals: Finland, Sweden, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, England, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland and Russia.
The first Mike Bell & The Belltones album “Scream & Holler” was released by Goofin´ Records in 2010 and it was recorded live in a vintage studio in Berlin. The record got fantastic reviews and good radio play. A Song from the album “Lord, I´m in trouble again” was selected on a Finnish documentary.
In 2011 they toured and made an EP “Baby, Make a Move” with an American 50´s rockabilly legend Huelyn Duvall. Their songs also appeared on international compilations and Goofin´ Records released a self-titled EP from the band. The second album “Payback” will be released in June 2012. They will also continue to tour the top rockin´ clubs and festivals across Europe.
