Mika Stokkinen - guitar, vocals

Mika was one of the few lucky ones, who were allowed to learn a cool instrument at school. He first enjoyed classical music training before switching to the electric guitar and participating in numerous sessions with schoolmates, By the time he was 16, Mika was already a Frontman as a guitarist and singer in various bands. At this time his musical interest was strictly rock-oriented, but he was soon infected by the bluesvirus. Musicians such as B.B. King, Jr. Watson and Hollywood Fats and live gigs of local Bluesbands left deep impressions. Innumerable appearances with different Bands enabled him to develop a great and inspiring versatility on the guitar and flexibility in his voice.

Werner "Knuckle" Dorfmeister - double bass

He discovered rockabilly music at the end of the 80’s. For 5 years he played piano and accordion in a rockabilly band. On tours throughout Europe he appeared on stage with greats such as Sandy Ford, Billy Lee Riley, Johnny Preston, The Jets, Crazy Cavan, and Gene Vincent’s original Bluecaps. Over time his music interest changed from Neo-Rockabilly to early Country Boogie and Blues. 1996 he founded a Westernswing Band in the style of legends such as Bob Wills and Pee Wee King.. As the band couldn't find a bassist he quit playing keys and changed to upright bass in 2003. Shortly afterwards he formed AToMiC BOoGiE. His particular interest in the legendary Roots Music bassman Willie Dixon brought him more into early R&B music and led him to form a Rhythm & Blues Band. Besides his band pojects he loves to show up at blues sessions to support lots of different musicians with his vintage pumping groove.
