Snatchin' And Grabbin'

Jumpin' From 6 To 6 is going from strength to strength, with interviews, reviews and articles about the modern Rockin' scene. When Jumpin' From 6 To 6 vol. 1 pdf came out there was an interview with Dave Stuckey of the Dave and Deke Combo which caught my eye. They've got a great sound, good pedigree and a sense of humour. Check out a couple of tracks and then go check out the other albums on their site, and you'll see what I mean.

I've permanently got a Proper Records Box on my wishlist these days, as they're are putting out some wonderful compilations. It took me a while to realise that Snatchin and Grabbin was an old Bob Wills Western Swing tune featuring Skeeter Elkin on piano, so hear for your listening pleasure, and educational excitement. I guess times haven't changed so much

And you can get it on Proper Records Box 83, there are some great tracks on this, their second Western Swing Box

Good post. Deke Dickerson is a native of my hometown - Columbia, Missouri USA. i thouroughly enjoy all of his records, but he must be seen live to be fully appreciated. He's a fantastic entertainer in every good sense of the word. He does tour Europe, so keep your eyes open!
