The Jokers first came to public attention in summer 2009 when their debut album The Big Rock’n’Roll Show was released independently, achieving remarkable sales within a few months. Countless shows in seedy clubs and shady joints followed, the four musicians having only one target: to make The Jokers popular and to grow as artists.
“We’re a hard-working band. We like to play as often as we can and keep learning all the time,” Paul Hurst explains. “Everything about The Jokers is honest and authentic, our sole aim is to be successful and make people happy.”
Over almost two years, The Jokers spent a total of five months working on Rock’n’Roll Is Alive with producer Andy Macpherson (ERIC CLAPTON, THE WHO, BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST, THE BUZZCOCKS). The result is bound to delight all rock music fans. Hurst: “We have grown perceptibly in the past 24 months and are now ready to present an album which bears its title with justification. Rock’n’Roll is an attitude, it stands for freedom, tolerance and self-fulfilment. Rock’n’Roll Is Alive reflects all these aspects perfectly.”
