Shorty Tom & The Longshots / Bio

SHORTY TOM & THE LONGSHOTS (Bio Française)
Shorty Tom & The Longshots est un trio Hillbilly & Rockabilly Roots, sans batterie, formé à Toulouse fin 2012 par Thomas (The Doodads), Dominique (John, Jack & Jill – The Doodads) et Bruno (King Size – John, Jack & Jill – Hula Trio – Da Gous Ket Ramblers – Carl & The Rhythm All Stars, pour n’en nommer que quelques uns).
Leurs influences musicales sont variées. Citons par exemple Al Ferrier, Hank Williams Sr, Jack Guthrie, Mack Banks, Maddox Brothers, Bill Carlisle, etc.
Ils font leurs premières dents dans les bars du Sud Ouest et festivals locaux, acquérant une certaine réputation et en juillet 2013 font la pré-party du fameux Summer Jamboree, en Italy, au côté notamment de Mike Sanchez.
L’année 2013 s’écoule au rythme de concerts locaux, ce qui leur permet de roder leur répertoire, renforcer leurs prestations scéniques et acquérir ainsi une stature Européenne.
Ainsi, 2014 les verra au RnR Jamboree (région parisienne), partageant l’affiche avec les Tinstars), au Rave On Rockabilly Club du barcelonnais Kike Hayride, au Rock and Roll City Jamboree à Donaueschinguen (Allemagne), au Hoorn RnR Sunday (Hollande), au Hultsfreed Hayrise (Suède) et au High Rockabilly (Espagne). Et ce n’est certainement que le début d’une longue aventure !
Ils ont en projet d’enregistrer un 45 tours, et quand le temps sera venu, un album complet.
Shorty Tom and the Longshots?
Percez le mystère, en venant voir de vos propres yeux !
Shorty Tom & The Longshots ?
Dépêchez vous, venez voir le phénomène....ça ne va pas durer !
Shorty va grandir, devenir Tom tout court, et rapidement. Les membres du groupe sont à leur place, et ça n’aurait pu être d autres… Chant/guitare rythmique à la Tom, contrebasse à la Dom, et guitare/steel guitare à la Bruno ! Mais, le trio va trouver un quatrième larron (un violoniste?), et vous aurez raté ce qu’ils professent: du Rockabilly rural, du Hillbilly qui veut entrer en ville, abrupt, rugueux et terrien.... De l'éphémère (des morceaux de 1mn 20), et de la chaleur (dans les bottes)… On vous l’aura promis

SHORTY TOM & THE LONGSHOTS (English bio)
Shorty Tom & The Longshots is a Hillbilly & Roots Rockabilly drumless trio formed in Toulouse (southwest of France) at the end of 2012 by Thomas (The Doodads), Dominique (John, Jack & Jill - The Doodads), and Bruno (King Size - John, Jack & Jill - Hula Trio - Da Gous Ket Ramblers - Carl & The Rhythm All Stars, to name but a few).
Their musical influences range from Al Ferrier to Hank Williams, Sr., and include the likes of Jack Guthrie, Mack Banks, Maddox Bros. and Bill Carlisle.
They cut their teeth in bars and at local festivals of the southwest, acquiring a certain reputation, and, in July 2013, opened the famous Summer Jamboree in Italy, sharing the bill with Mike Sanchez. They spent 2013 on the local concert circuit- a tour strategy that allowed
them to fine tune their repertoire, strengthen their stage performance, and
gain stature on the European music scene.
This year, Shorty Tom & The Longshots will perform at the RnR Jamboree (Paris region), where they will share the bill with the Tinstars; the Rave On! Rockabilly Club (Barcelona area), presented by Kike Hayride; the Rock n Roll City Jamboree Donaueschingen (Germany); the Hoorn Rock'n'Roll Sunday (Holland); the Hultsfreed Hayride (Sweden); and the High Rockabilly (Spain). To be sure, the 2014 European tours mark the beginning of a long and successful adventure!
The group has already made plans to release a 45 rpm single, and, eventually, full length album.
Shorty Tom & The Longshots?
Who are they? And what makes them so special? Well, there's only one way to find out! Come and see-and *listen*- for yourself!
Shorty Tom & The Longshots?
Don't delay-or you'll miss this opportunity to experience a musical phenomenon that won't last! After all, Shorty is going to grow up fast. Very soon, he'll be known simply as Tom!
Shorty Tom & The Longshots. Can there be a more perfect trio? Tom's signature vocals are backed up by the unique playing style of Tom himself on rhythm guitar, Don on double bass, and Bruno on guitar/ steel guitar.
But wait! The trio is going to fetch themselves a fourth rascal (a fiddler?)-and you will have missed the boat! Namely, their own brand of rural Rockabilly and down-to-earth Hillbilly music that aims to hit the town rough and hard!
So there you are, folks! A flash of music (songs are all too brief at 1minute, 20 seconds)! And a hot time in the old town tonight! Guaranteed!
