GROOVE ADDICT : WES DAKUS' REBELS

Press

Read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

WES DAKUS' REBELS

KAPP RECORDS 1967                                       KL-1536


Wes Dakus and The Rebels
Wes Dakus & The Club 93 Rebels formed in 1958. In 1960 
they were signed with Quality Records, and released their 
first album in the same year titled El Ringo. They toured 
with such artists as Buddy Knox.
In 1965 The Wes Dakus Album - With The Rebels was released 
and helped the band create several singles. In 1967 their 
album was issued on KAPP as "Wes Dakus's Rebels". In Canada 
the album was split into singles. RPM Magazine voted the band 
"Top Instrumental Group" in 1964 and 1965. The 1968 single 
"New Sound Of Wes Dakus" had no band involvement whatsoever 
and was a group of session musicians from Gary Paxton Studios 
who had recorded demos. Wes licensed two instrumental tracks 
from his Paxton sessions to complete his Capitol contract.
