BiographyThere are at least four Bands with the name "The Jokers".
1) The Jokers are a Rock & Roll band from Liverpool, England.
(Wrong The Jokers where from Antwerp , Belgium in the early 60's)
Popular sixties group.
Songs :
Look here :
Debuted in 1963 with an adaptation of a traditional song (just as The
Cousins did with Kili-Watch) : for them it was the folk-traditional "Ik zag
Cecilia komen", (I say Ceilia coming) which became "Cecilia Rock" in their
The Jokers concentrated on the instrumental work, with Shadows-like songs
as "Tabou", "Ronny Boy" and "Gemini Boogie". Guitar-player Ronny Sigo is
called the Belgian Hank Marvin in "Wit-lof from Belgium". Their singles all
shared a formula : a charming instrumental rock on the A-side, on the
flipside a slow song, a mix between the Shadows and James Last.
They conquered Flanders easily, but also had success in Germany and Spain
(where they recorded an album in stereo, a rarity for 1962). Even in Japan,
where they released a Christmas-album, they became popular in the
slipstream of the American band The Ventures. Worldwide, they have sold
850.000 copies of their albums.
Ronny Sigo is quoted as saying "We where very young when the success came.
I was only 15 at the time. That's a hard thing to get to grips with at that
age. With a better management and promotion, the Jokers would have been
even bigger."
From 1967 they turned mellow and ended the group 2 years later.

Their debut album The Big Rock & Roll Show was mixed by Mike Fraser who has
previously worked with Aerosmith, AC/DC, Van Halen, Metallica and Joe
Satriani amongst others.
The band formed in 2006 with the aim of "creating the worlds greatest Rock
& Roll band". A rather bold asperation, but The Big Rock & Roll Show is a
mighty fine start
2) A Japanese band.
3) A 1960's surf band whose biggest hit was Purple Crackle
4) A finnish neo-rockabilly band.
