The Rimshots

The Rimshots gained universal  respect from Musicians, Industry professionals & audiences alike, by playing their own style and mix of Rockabilly, Western Swing & Skiffle.
They have been described by music industry critics as the best Country/Rockabilly band in Europe.
They have worked with artistes Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Comets, Narvel Felts, Wanda Jackson, Rockabilly Legend, Mac Curtis and Van Morrison to name but a few.
They built up a strong following worldwide touring for 19 years, playing at venues, some 20 miles from the Russian Border, most of Europe, to Shows on Broadway, New York and Las Vegas.
With a lot of local shows in the early years around Penarth, Cardiff and South Wales.
Of their 5 released  popular albums, the Hank Williams Tribute album was awarded the Best British Country Album of the year at the CMA Awards 1999, not bad for a Rockabilly Band!
They split up 8 years ago for a break to follow different musical & family paths.
Since then they have been nagged and nagged to reform the original Award winning, World touring, “One More Beer” recording line up by many fans, clubs and festivals worldwide.
This year they have agreed to play the Rockabilly Rave on June 21st and the Hi Rockabilly festival in Spain in 2010 so they’re sort of back on the road. Since then they have played and been ask to play festivals all over the world.
