The Rhythm Checkers were a great 60' group from Alsace, were an exceptional beat group playing a raw mixture of rhythm and blues and rock and roll with a wild garage attitude. Maybe we can call them the European Sonics.
Formed in 1965, in Saarlouis, Saarland, Germany, by musicians native to France, Germany and Holland with Dave Kelly aka Wolfgang Mersinger,Eddy Van Nelfen,Frank Farian,Kurt Horbach and Norbert Hohlweg.
In 1966, Dave Kelly aka Wolfgang Mersinger and Frank Farian left the group, with Roland 'Bouboule' Bauer (vocal), the regretted Robby Sterheim (lead guitar), Eddy Van Nelfen (rhythm guitar), Kurth Horbach (bass), later replaced by Dany Gentner and Norbert Hohlweg (drums), they set the stage on fire during their shows in France between the years 1966 and 1967.
Disbanded in 1967 in Strasbourg, Alsace, France.
