Normally I'm not a Fan of the Eurovision Song Contest, but I was told that the Opening had been great this year, and I was actually really impressed. Cool Cover of last years winning Song, first with a Rockabilly Trio, then with a complete Bigband.

I think this is about the best you can get out of this song - I didn´t really like the original version. This version is quite appealing to me. Thanks for posting!

That Singer is a Comedian /Tv-Show host, and always works a lot with music. Most of the Bigband is from his Showband the "Heavytones", but for this event some more musicians joined. They call it the "Heavytones Bigband" then. The other guitarist is Adriano Batolba probably the most important producer here in germany for anything Rockabilly, and also leader of a great rockin' Orchestra. Here's another Clip of the Bigband, with an arrangement of a Song from a german comedian you'd also might call a "Jazzclown". Have fun with it:
