Gebardi XXL

16.7.2008 >> LP 43!
17.7.2008 >> LP 43!

Jo vuosien ajan on eläimellinen bilebändi Gebardi niittänyt keikkamainetta ja kunniaa.

Linja levytuotannon suhteen on ollut kuitenkin hakusessa, eikä bändi ole onnistunut pullauttamaan ensimmäistäkään pitkäsoittoa ulos.

Nyt palaset ovat kuitenkin loksahtaneet toden teolla paikalleen, ja ratkaisu löytyi nenän edestä: bändissä kun on primus motorina ja solistina Porin oma poika "Nat Newborn" (Visa Luttinen) ja trumpetistina Natin sovittaja-aisapari "Ernio Arricone" (Erno Tiittanen). Heidän almost big bandinsa "Nat Newborn Big Time":n kymmenen puhaltajaa otettiin vahvistamaan Gebardia - ja syntyi 15-miehinen Gebardi XXL. Inspiraatiota on ammennettu isohkon kauhallisen verran Brian Setzer Orchestran suunnasta.

Ohjelmisto (ja siis tuleva levy) koostuu klassikkobiiseistä (Rock This Town, All Shook Up, Just A Gigolo ym.) Luttisen mainioin käännöstekstein, miehen kynäilemistä parista perinnetietoisesta originaalista, sekä uuden ilmeen saaneista tutuista, tuoreemmistakin biiseistä (Rusketusraidat, Pelimies, Swingis Khan ym.). Sovitusideat ovat nekin pääosin putkahtaneet edellämainitusta päästä, mutta vasta Erno-Ernion puhallinsovitusosaaminen kruunaa komeuden - tietenkään väheksymättä Gebardi-miehien panosta: erityisesti kitaristi Pasi Könönen joutuu astumaan isoihin saappaisiin kokoa Setzer - mutta täyttää tontin vakuuttavasti.

Gebardi tunnetaan pomminvarmana kansankiihottajana, energisenä ja hyväntuulisena viihdyttäjänä ja kiihdyttäjänä. Tätä on tietysti myös Gebardi XXL, mutta nyt upeat isot puhallinsovitukset sekä tietysti maan eturivin puhaltajat nostavat tämän bilebändin musiikillisen annin uuteen potenssiin! Gebardi XXL nostattaa tunnelman kattoon - ja kattoa muutaman metrin siihen päälle.
