In 1993 you heard tunes that sounded very old and strange. Nobody knew that Frankie Melody and Slim Danny
had formed the Rockabilly - Rock'n'Roll band "The Crazy Crows" after they had heard Rock'n'Roll
and old-timey music since they were teenagers.
Even after long and intensive practise many visitors heard them at regional concerts were exited
how much they enjoyed playing their music. Some guitar players and drumers changed but they went on
and gained lots of experience playing at various events. They played at city-jamborees, parties like
the Rockabilly-Weekender in Schöneiche (Berlin) or as support for the British Rockabilly band
In 1998 they created a new project called "Slim Danny and the Lucky-U-Ranch Hands".
Two guys from Kassel, Olli
from "The Blue Tops" on Bass and Marcel from "The Montesas" on Lead guitar were the new faces.
Even one year later Frankie Melody and Slim Danny founded the Hillbilly band "The O.K. Corral
Gunfighters" with their friend Big Ball Schneider. Becauce of a lack of time they played only at
In 2000 not only the millennium began.
With Shakin' Casi who joined the band "The O.K. Corral Gunfighters" one year before
Slim and Frankie formed a new band. "The Wildwood Boys" had the job to play the good old
Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly. But they did not miss new influences.
They are inspired by Hillbilly, Rockabilly and Country of the fifties and they create their own songs.
After a while they went on with practise and wrote two setlist per 60 minutes. Since 2001 they have
played their own songs and standards at regional and national events in clubs, bars, at
city-jamborees or at parties. They also supported international Rockabilly bands and Psychobilly bands.
After some changes on drums in 2003 Eddie Star from the band "Jumblers" joined the band.
Starting in 2006 it was silent around "The Wildwood Boys". Did they come back or is it
finally over? Nobody knew. But they came back in 2007. With Mad Mike on rhythm guitar
"The Wildwood Boys" go on playing to fire up the audience and make them get out on the dance floor.
Also in 2015 the line up changes, the new face is bassman Ricky Rich. 2017 "The Wildwood Boys" took a break again,
sadly caused by illness... They go on in 2018 with new energy an drummer - true to the motto "Rock'n'Roll never dies"!
