Nick Bisognano today’s bandleader of Rockin’ Carbonara founded his Woodchopper trio in 1988 with mates Humphrey hammering on the drums and Pady twanging his guitar. The band was gigging extensively throughout Europe. These guys had greasy hair, duck tails or pompadours: Pady just had a blue cap like the ones of Gene Vincent's buddies, Humphrey just showed his percussion officer's muscles, and Nick showed off a duck tail. These guys took hold of the party like all true rocking band may do: it's loud, it's funny and even more. Sometimes they paid tribute to the old rockabillies without being trapped in nostalgia. The band splitt in 1997 and had recorded two albums.
This excellent fifteen track Woodchoppers’ CD is now re-released on the Vampirette Music label from Frankfurt/Germany.
The music is a blend of Swing and authentic Rockabilly, but also with some modern influences - quite interesting!
With the current line-up “Rockin’ Carbonara” with Arno on the drums and Tamer on the Telecaster, Nick takes the lead on the songs and brings more “joie de vivre” then ever before!
