Back to the fifties on a random Sunday

June 20, 2016 | Retro Lifestyle | 8 comments

Yesterday was definitely not a lazy Sunday. With a friend, I went Back to the fifties.. Sunny weather, good company and a fifties environment. Just a few ingredients for a lovely vintage meets present Sunday.
So this Back to the fifties festival was in the centre of Roosendaal (Netherlands). It was not very nearby and I’ve never been in Roosendaal except for a transfer to another track in the railway station. So my friend and I felt like tourists in our own country. Tourists in a temporary time machine. Rewind to the 1950s and stay there, at least for a few hours.

The oldies-but-goldies Christmas playlist

It’s that time of the year again. The time when a certain someone will tell you a little story about how he gave his heart away last Christmas (will he ever learn?) and someone else only wants you for Christmas, which is nice but she told you that so many times. You should know that by now.
Yes, it’s December again and the most wonderful time of the year is coming soon. In my perception, Christmas is also the most nostalgic time of the year. We watch (old) movies with our family and friends and bring up memories. 90s kids who always watch Home Alone as a Christmas tradition, raise your hands! Also, we love to listen to listen to the (Dutch) top 2000 songs of all time. With a lot of classic hits and memories. Nostalgia all around.

Remember the 1950s? Even if you don’t, you will know that this decade, Rhythm & Blues and Rock and Roll have an unbreakable bond. While I was watching a dvd today, I was intrigued by its background music. I was wondering which band of the 1950s was playing. Of course my best friend Youtube helped me out here. I was pleasantly surprised that I had to fast forward to the present because this band is not from the 1950s, but has been alive and kicking since 2008.
Presenting to you a Rockabilly band of the present featuring lovely Blues and Rock and Roll of the past: The Rhythm Shakers. This band with a very high 1950s Rock and Roll vibe, has an unique sound which is almost similar to the old days. However, there is one big difference. Where in the 1950s the Blues and Rock and Roll world was dominated …
