ABOUT

Since this is just for fun, I am using professional backing tracks from karaoke-version.com, licensing partner Tency Music (copyright), to accompany me doing some of my favorite tunes from the 50s, 60s and more. Except for only a couple of bands, there seems to be no Victoria interest in playing good old rock & roll and rockabilly. If you love singing/playing this genre with solid vocal and instrumental backing for your tunes (minus the hassle), I highly recommend the karaoke-version route. Works really good for me, have a listen. More tunes coming soon....
