A good record is the cure for a bad day. You might be down on your luck, up the creek or on the skids – but it’s clinically impossible to stay depressed when Si Cranstoun’s Old School plays. In a monochrome world, this album is a spring-heeled burst of technicolor soul, scattering your worries and shaking your feet. “I felt it was time to rip it up, have some all-out retro fun and inject a high-octane dose of energy for the vintage dancefloors,” says the London-born soul man. “I recommend you listen to this album early in the morning to get yourself together – then real late at night to forget yourself!”
Si has already been dubbed “the king of vintage” by The Express and enjoyed rave endorsements from influential DJs like Terry Wogan and Chris Evans (“How good is Si Cranstoun?”). Now, released in 2016 on Ruf Records, Old School ups the ante, with Si setting the controls for the golden era and tipping his hat to formative influences like Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke and Big Joe Turner. “When it comes to taste,” he says, “it’s ’40s, ’50s, ’60s all the way.”While Old School’s stylings are unashamedly retro, this album’s time is unmistakably now, driven by the original songcraft and acclaimed vocals of a bandleader who’s given the vintage scene fresh impetus. “It’s true to who I am and the rocking rhythm ‘n’ blues that stirs my soul,” says Si. “But all the songs have a quirky slant and they all originate from my colourful mind.”
Indeed, Si’s vision for Old School was so clear that in addition to supplying those golden vocals and multi-instrumentation, he also produced a mix that turns back the clock. “Because I’ve been so hands-on with the recording of these songs,” he remembers, “they’ve all been a giant learning experience into the art of capturing the spirit of that ‘yesterday’ sound.”
Old School defies you not to dance. You’ll be pulled onto the floor by the plinking piano and parping brass of the title track. You’ll stay there for Vegas Baby, which bottles all the sticky thrills of a night on the Sin City Strip, complete with Reet Petite-style rolled syllables. Si nods: “That’s me having melodic and lyrical fun with the blues.”A cascade of harmony vocals powers the irrepressible Right Girl, while the bluesy bounce and cockney asides of Thames River Song are sure to spark a rave-up on the international vintage circuit, from Viva Las Vegas to Summer Jamboree and Rhythm Riot. “I’m proud of these songs,” says Si, “and I’d be more than willing to put my money where my mouth is and wander out onto any stage after or before whoever and sing them.”
To truly get under the skin of Si Cranstoun, though, try Commoner To King, and the lyric that references “lonely days of scrimping and scraping”. It’s certainly a subject to which Si can relate. As the London-born son of a ska promoter, his formative years were spent busking with his brother in The Dualers. “It’ll always hold a magic for me,” he remembers. “But the not-so-great things were bad weather, competition, the drunks…”
In the post-millennium, Si looked set for a mainstream breakout when he self-released a single – and watched it climb to UK#21 – but when the hit proved a false start, he went through a period of soul-searching. “I’d given up my hopes of the big-time,” he admits, “but I continued to perform my music.”
Thankfully, a mojo-restoring fresh song recorded with his new solo band – Dynamo – pulled Si out of the rut and back into contention, pinging him to the head of the vintage pack and setting him up for 2014’s acclaimed Modern Life (which straddled the iTunes blues chart for months after release).
Now comes Old School. Bottling his irrepressible showmanship and spitting out the best songs of his career, it’s the album that promises to take Si Cranstoun from cult hero to kingpin, and spread the joy across the planet. “I’d just love Old School to be heard by as many people as possible,” says the bandleader. “And when we take this album out on the road, we’ll all be out to bring the house down…”
Si Cranstoun will be on tour with Ruf Records’ Blues Caravan 2017.

Boogielicious is a German-Dutch Boogie-, Blues- and Jazz-Trio that was established with Eeco Rijken Rapp (piano, vocals) and David Herzel (drums) as a duo in 2007. One year later they continued as a trio together with Dr. Bertram Becher on Blues harmonica. Since then the Boogielicious produced two duo and two trio albums that all were very well accepted by the audience (press voice about their latest album “Boogie aLive: “Effortless, weightless, simply wonderful…”). Boogielicious creates a unique and very dynamic sound that is driven by David Herzel’s tasty and groovy drumming style together with Eeco Rijken Rapp’s fluent and highly-skilled Boogie piano and his warm voice. Their music is spiced-up with Bertram Becher’s professionally played Blues harmonica that fit very well into their way of celebrating the Boogie Woogie. Boogielicious is one of the most extraordinary Boogie Woogie bands in Europe and transports the music of the 1920th, 30th and 40th into the 21st century. Boogielicious’ passionate performances led to numerous concerts within Germany and all over Europe: they played on festivals and in Jazz clubs in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, England and Portugal. Boogielicious is a trio that on the one hand electrifies the Boogie Woogie community, Rock’n Roll lovers and traditional Blues and Jazz enthusiasts, but on the other hand reaches all fans of handmade music in general. Their brilliant interaction on stage paired with the individual virtuosity of each of the musicians catches the audience initially. Their music seems to be their purpose of life and they play it because they want to create unforgetable moments! That is why Boogielicious was able to extend their ausdience far beyond the typical Boogie, Blues or Jazz listeners: since a while more and more younger fans come to their concerts as well. To put it into short terms and as the bandname already suggests: delicious Boogie Woogie and more!

Je m’appelle Justin Mast, j’ai 18 ans.
Je suis passionné de musique depuis que je suis enfant, j’ai commencé la guitare à 8 ans en prenant des cours dans une école de musique.
J’ai eu plusieurs professeurs qui m’ont enseigné des techniques différentes, et qui m’ont amené à découvrir des styles de musique très variés. Aujourd’hui, je joue de la country, du rock, du blues mais je ne me limite pas qu’à ça.
Je suis toujours curieux d’écouter et de m’inspirer d’artistes que je ne connais pas. Interprétant et créant des chansons dans des styles différents, je me passionne pour l’exercice de composition qu’il m’arrive de tester lors de mes représentations.
J’aime beaucoup aller écouter des concerts.
Il ya 3 ans, j’ai débuté le chant en autodidacte en reprenant des chansons de Johnny Cash que j’admire.
Cette année, à plusieurs reprises j’ai pu me produire en solo dans des festivals ainsi que dans différents bars de Strasbourg et d’Allemagne.

OLDTIMER REGISTRATIONS 2017
For a long time, the town of Illkirch-Graffenstaden has been leading a cultural policy based on conviviality and accessibility to the largest possible number. Its cultural centre, l’Illiade, welcomes more than 50000 spectators on its 3500m2 each year, with a season offering more than 90 shows hosting artists renowned nationally and internationally , as well as local companies and bands. It will transform into dance studios and host a large vintage market as well as the 5 concerts of the weekend.
Your classes will take place in optimal conditions on the former SACM thermal plant, which is an emblematic and exceptional site of the Illkirch-Graffenstaden town. For one weekend, the former industrial land, in its haven of greenery, becomes a more than 2000m2 venue dedicated to Boogie-Woogie and Swing Rock. At a less than 5min walk from the Illiade site where the concerts will take place, following the banks of the Ill river, you will find the vintage market and the OLD TIMER meeting, as well as some of your classes.
