HOMETOWN GAMBLERS : Takin' Care of Business
Belgium’s Hometown Gamblers burst onto the music scene in 1998 when brothers Guy and Yves De Caluwé decided to set up a rockabilly band.
Yves and Guy were hooked to rockabilly and rock n’ roll music ever since they were youngsters.
In the early years of the Hometown Gamblers, the line-up changed a few times but in the year 2002 everything fall into place when the right people were found.
It soon became clear that there was no place for drums in the band.
From that moment, the line-up consists of Guy De Caluwé on double bass, Jurgen Van Poppel on lead, baritone and steel guitars, Jeffrey Thielens on harmonica and Yves De Caluwé on rhythm guitar and vocals.
So far the set list consisted of classic tunes only. But it soon became clear that the Hometown Gamblers had more up their sleeve.
The band started to write original songs. Yves turned out to be a good songwriter and with the help of his brother Guy and Jurgen a lot of songs were written in a short time.
After some months of rehearsing the original songs were included in the live set list and they were very much appreciated by the audience.
In the fall of 2004 the Hometown Gamblers got to back-up the Seatsniffers and their Guitar player / Singer “Walter Broes “(Seatsniffers)heard the songs and liked them.
They asked Walter, who’s also a well known producer, to help them with the production of a full CD.
The Hometown Gamblers are always trying to make it better and better and are always glad to see and meet people who appreciate that great variety of good music that was made in the time when music was really music.
