THE FIREBIRDS (UK) @ Fun House Tattoo Club - 25/05/2013

The Firebirds are a 3-piece rock 'n' roll band recognised as Europe's finest.
Formed in 1981 and one of Europe's finest Rock ‘n' Roll bands, The Firebirds are Jim Plummer Guitar/Vocals, Dan Plummer Double Bass/Vocals and Jason Bryant Drums/Vocals, with four first class musicians The Firebirds are able to cover the complete spectrum of 1950s' and 1960s' music, from Commercial Rock ‘n' Roll Songs to Rockabilly, Harmonised Doo Wop, Instrumentals, Ballads, and their Own Compositions.

Having backed some of the great American Singers of yesteryear including Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Feathers, Charlie Gracie, Ray Campi and Sleepy La Beefe to name but a few, the band has also played alongside British greats such as Marti Wilde, Lonnie Donegan and Showaddywaddy.
Following their transition from semi-professional to professional in 1991, The Firebirds have gone from strength to strength. Having been voted ‘Act of the month' by Club Mirror, they have since played alongside household names such as Bob Monkhouse, Tom O'Connor, and Freddie Starr.
During 1992 The Firebirds performed at the official opening of the Euro Disney Theme Park in Paris .
The Firebirds have undertaken extensive tours both in Britain and abroad. At home they have had very successful Summer Seasons performing at Holiday Venues, nightclubs and Military Establishments etc. The foreign tours included Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France, Italy, Denmark and Spain, and entertained passengers on three Mediterranean Cruises.
Following their sell out tour of Denmark , The Firebirds were asked to top the bill at the Messan Music Festival in the former Yugoslavian capital of Belgrade. The band was also booked by the Trident Recording Studio's in London to record the sound track for a ‘Learn to Jive Video', which is now being marketed worldwide.
Their three latest albums, recorded on the Rockville label, ‘The Firebirds Live' with selected tracks recorded from live performances across the world and… ‘Rock and Roll Special' recorded with Linda Gail Lewis, the younger sister of the great Jerry Lee Lewis, have further boosted sales figures of The Firebirds CD's, videos and albums throughout the UK, Europe and as far afield as Japan, America, Russia and the Far East.
During May 2000 The Firebirds made their first visit to the USA playing venues in Memphis and Las Vegas . The Firebirds were honoured to be the only non American band to be invited to play the Rockabilly Festival 2002 at the Carl Perkins Civic Centre in Jackson , Tennessee; this huge event marked the 50th Birthday of the Sun Record label and the 25th Anniversary of the death of Elvis.
Our latest Albums Dance Girl Dance and Doo Wop Volume One were recorded in our recently built recording studio.
More recently The Firebirds have played the Paris Music Festival and Corporate functions in both Rome and Denmark . At home the corporate events amongst others saw The Firebirds entertaining guests for the Priory Group, the David Lloyd Leisure Company, and The Royal College of GP's Annual Ball.
2011 the boys will be releasing the long awaited Doo Wop Volume Two.
