Chuck Banana & the All Nite Longs

Coming from Pearl City, Hawaii Chuck Banana & the All Nite Longs is one of the best band to appear in the late 90’s. A dynamite combo made of the great voice of Chuck Banana, the sparkling guitar of Eddy B. All, Teddy Nite on drums and the worlds biggest bass player Barry Long. Talent knows talent. They soon made a deal with Memphis label Big Beat and released “Oh Lisa” on 10" format. This 5 song ep was a good representation of the band: solid rock'n'roll .

A couple of years later they released a full length LP. And although it was an all covers album, the sound was unmistakably theirs. In their career they have played with legends like Carl Perkins (who said about them “The best Rock'n'Roll band I’ve ever seen”), Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Link Wray and Jack Scott to name but a few. 2003 saw the release of a new record on Blind Pig records, this time with Banana’s originals which are still favourites in the band’s live set.


In the late 2000’s the band took a break and each of them held a day job. During this period Big Beat record issued the cd “Back To Banana”, a kind of best of with unreleased songs on it too. Finally the band rejoined in 2012, toured America, released a DVD “Banana Republic” and they now are on tour in Europe again.

So here we are! With our hair pomped high, alcohol in our veins, jeans rolled up, and our engines revved up, ready to go!! "It's All about Cars, Bars and Guitars!!!"
