Strauss and Friends

This side project of the band quintet of „Hannes & the Vinyl Freaks“ got established years ago, when there wasn’t enough room to place five musicians (or more) on stage or the budget was to feed only a trio. As it is almost impossible to name all former guests, only two will be featured below „Michaelvis“ and „The Ghost“.


Michaelvis aka Michael Stark – voc

Michaelvis is a regular guest since 2007 singin‘ & dancin‘ several songs of Elvis and other rock’n’roll and rockabilly legends of the 1950’s.


The Ghost Jens-Georg Morgenstern – voc, rhythm git.
Jens-Georg use to have a band with the name of „Fairlane Rockets“, based in Germany. ( Neo Rockabilly Story 11, compilation, pub 1990, Rockhouse Rec., NL). 

Hannes (w/ the SUNDOWNERS) and Jens-Georg (FAIRLAINE ROCKETS) are on one and the same 12″ vinyl LP compilation, pub. 1995 by Jungle Noise Rec., Germany, Apecall No. 009, „Guitar Riot – A German Rockabilly Compilation“.
