Stoked for Hong Kong rockabilly act The Boogie Playboys for being added to the biggest annual rockabilly festival – Viva Las Vegas!
The band formed back in 2009 and released their very first album BIG ROD in 2012. After the departure of their vocalist, the band was re-named The Boogie Playboys in 2013, releasing their first single人情做八舊 (800 Dollars to a Wedding) shortly after.
The band wrote and recorded new material, but also re-recorded their old album with the new vocalist. In 2015, they released a music video of one of those old songs 打工仔怨曲 (Working Class Blues) with the vocals replaced by its songwriter, Bluesman.
Not only has the band played over 60 shows in 4 years, they are also \ the organizers of Hong Kong’s foremost rockabilly event Dirty Boogie Rockabilly Festival.
They have also released a compilation CD of 16 bands from all over Asia. One of the songs featured on the CD was their new track called 勁正 (Awesomely Good).
In 2016 they released a music video for a new single entitled 悶棍 (Boresome Lonely).
As mentioned above, the band has just released their brand new self-titled album on CD, digital and vinyl formats. (Though the vinyl version won’t be released til Christmas). Since the band is a bunch of over achievers – they’ve also simultaneously released a SECOND record that is a re-recording of their old album entitled Playboys Strut.
Both these records are available now on Itunes!
