Jets set for rock 'n' roll Christmas special


By Patric Baird

The Belfast record label hosts its last live show of the year with a line up of two local bands. Headliners The Sabrejets is a rockabilly band who draw on influences from primal Fifties rock 'n' roll through to the likes of T.Rex and the New York Dolls.

Their unique stripped down, revved up, two-fisted brand of rockabilly has seen them tear apart venues throughout Ireland, Britain and Europe, sharing stages with the likes of Chuck Berry, Imelda May and Bo Diddley.

Also on the bill are Los Reyes, an instrumental 'surf band' who play music reminiscent of sunny California in the Fiftiess and Sixties.

Sunglasses After Dark's Ryan Fitzsimmons may be dropping by to spin a few tunes and admission is £5, payable at the door.
