Biography

Boston’s Racketeers are the band whose name has come to mean explosive rock and roll energy. Their wild stage show has attracted loyal fans from all corners of this country, and their debut EP - released in England - brought the irresistibly rocking rhythms of the Racketeers to the dance floors and airwaves of Europe. The moment their audience has most eagerly been awaiting has now arrived with their first full-length release. If you ask today’s Hep-cat what they like most about the rock and roll sound, they’ll tell you it’s “the beat man, the beat.” Their long anticipated disk has all that and more. The titles of these all-original compositions-” Out for Kicks”… “Rock Shop Hop” … “Clip Joint Tramp” - resonate with the afterhours, on-the-road lifestyle the Racketeers live and breathe. But when you drop their platter onto your hi-fi, you’ll also find yourself enjoying the smoother sounds of songs like “Walk My Baby Home” and “Hold Me Tight”, as these musicians display their remarkable versatility. If you already know the Racketeers, you’re sure to love their hi-energy rockabilly release. And if their disk is your introduction, get ready to be caught up by America’s most exciting rock and roll racket … Boston’s infamous Racketeers.
