Interview - The D.K. & The Band

We are The D.K. & The Band and we are from Athens Greece. We are friends and musicians and our common favorite music is 50’s Rock ‘n’ Roll – Rockabilly. So we made a band to play our music.

And the members are:
Dimitris Kelenis – Vocals
Nikos Taliadouros – Guitar
Dimitris Bikos –Bass
Vassilis Costeas – Drums
George Lagogiannis - Piano

How do you sound like?
We are musicians with completely different backgrounds (Blues, jazz, country-western, classical, punk) and common components of swing/rockabilly/rock n roll. We move to the fringes of this species, but our sound does not belong exclusively to this species. We try, as much as possible, to present a modern version of what has been preserved in musical memory as "50s" and to creatively add some musical elements that make us more "modern".

As the leader and singer of the band in this album called ‘’ Too Little Too Late’’
our 1st album in 2020, I wrote the music and lyrics. So I used to write music just like I used to listen to 50’s sound  of Rock n roll ( Bill Haley – Elvis Presley – Gene Vincent )

50’s Rock n Roll, Rockabilly, Country music, Blues.

6) What do you write about?
Love, Happiness, Beautiful Women.

7) Your favourite live performance so far?
It was in an Elvis Presley Tribute Concert in Athens Greece in front of  20000 people.

8) Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage.
I was in studio recording my new single which is called ‘’It’s Summertime’’ and while I was singing
Someone turn off the lights and I couldn’t see the lyrics so I was in blackout.

9) Your favourite records?
Elvis Presley and The Beatles records

10) A musician you would like to meet for a beer.
One of my favorite’s John Fogerty.
