Don’t jump to the wrong conclusions: Jimmy Cornett & The Deadmen definitely don’t play rockabilly music! Frank Jäger’s highly visible double bass, which he likes to take a bath in the crowd with, playing it on his back, may imply as much, but this band from Hamburg doesn’t go in for clichés. Their career is as colourful as their songs, their lyrics as diverse as life itself. So perhaps we should first of all address the question of what kind of music they actually play. The answer is: blues and southern rock, featuring sounds that originate from different places all over the world. The heat of California, the dry deserts of Nevada, smoky clubs in Amsterdam, London, Berlin – this band draws its inspirations wherever it goes. They’ve developed their international style on tours throughout Germany, but also during Cornett’s visits to the US, for example when they played the legendary Viper Room in Los Angeles, at a show in Uruguay’s capital Montevideo and at major biker meetings and Harley Davidson events in Germany and all over Europe. You have to experience Cornett and his band live, their sizzling mix of classy guitar riffs, distinctive grooves and haunting blues-laden melodies which have wowed audiences during their three tours to date.
