This Is It! - Treniers

This Is It!
Say it one more time for the roots of Rock n Roll! The Treniers, led by identical twins Cliff and Claude Trenier had been active since the 1940s, playing a small-combo cross between swing and early rock n' roll. Though their sound was swing influenced, the Treniers incorporated a mighty thumping backbeat and songs that included the words "rock" and "roll" - "Rocking on Sunday Night" and "It Rocks! It Rolls! It Swings!" They were also known for the humorous content of many of their songs, and their on stage acrobatics were seen as precursors to the wild antics of many later rock and roll groups. In the 1950s, they moved closer towards an R&B influenced sound, but were unable to weather the influx of rock and roll. Nonetheless the group was considered a strong influence on bands such as their contemporaries Bill Haley and His Comets, and they were in fact one of the first to record Haley's "Rock-a-Beatin' Boogie". The group were featured in several films in the 1950s including The Girl Can't Help It and Don't Knock the Rock, which helped make them one of the most visible and popular bands of the early Alan Freed era of rock n Rolls. So here we have 30, count 'em 30 of their finest can you say no?
