|El Rio Trio, Dutch Rock 'n' Roll and Rockabilly
Rock 'n' Roll, is music style that's in the blood of these guys. They play music with a passion that you can clearly hear in every one of their songs, from Rockabilly to polyphonic Doo Wop, nothing is strange to them! What they like most is the whipping sound of pure Fifties Rockabilly mixed with the rough sounds of the selfwritten numbers they bring on stage. That style we have baptised "Riobilly"!!
Snare Drum, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar and off course Slap Bass are the instruments that make this music great and powerful and off course are not absent at El Rio Trio! The history of El Rio Trio goes way back (2001), when these guys came together to make music in a garage, and had lotsa troubles with the neighbours. Miraculously enough the sound was so good, that these gentlemen grew to be welcome guests on stages in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and even in Norway.
All El Rio Trio members are experienced musicians, who played their first notes when they were barely out of their puberty, and from then on they were only busy making music, which you can hear in their sublime teamwork. Their enthusiasm and energy on stage makes that hot Riobilly sound!
