THE SWINGIN' NECKBREAKERS
THE COFFIN DAGGERS
Halloween at Hank's Saloon... Costumes encouraged!
Brought on together by brothers Tom and John Jorgensen in 1992, the vintage rock of The Swingin' Neckbreakers debuted in their hometown of Trenton, New Jersey with Don "Shaggy" Snook on guitar. Immediately signing to Telstar Records, the Neckbreakers debuted with the single "Diggin' A Grave," followed by their first album, the classic Live For Buzz in 1993. (After Shaggy's departure from the band in 1996, Jeffery Lee Jefferson joined)... Equal parts Ramones, Rivieras and Paul Revere and the Raiders, the Neckbreakers deliver straight-up rock'n'raunch that resonates perfectly with the average Joe who just wants to shake it down!
The Coffin Daggers, an instrumental surf-punk band from New York, delivers an all out attack on the senses drawing from diverse influences, ranging from Dick Dale, Henry Mancini, Link Wray, and the Cramps. Viktor Venom, one of the founders of legendary NYC punk band Nausea, started the group early in 1999. Vik's punk influences (he has also worked with Reagan Youth and Chaos UK) give the band's music a unique melodic sensibility. Their performances have floored both European and American audiences from start to finish, prompting Chart magazine to declare "no one comes close to The Coffin Daggers when it comes to all-out intensity... they will stomp a mudhole into your fragile minds."
