Introduction:
Taking inspiration from the pioneers of Rock 'n' Roll we are an authentic, four piece, Rock 'n' Roll/Rockabilly band based in the North West. Recreating the unique sound of the 1950's we emulate the greats from Presley to Perkins and Cochran to Cash. Harking back to a time when the size of the turn ups on your jeans and how much grease you could pile in your hair determined your stature, we bring you a mixture of our own original material, authentic 50's covers and modern songs with a rockabilly vibe! With our roots embedded in the raw and unique edginess of the 50’s rockabilly sound, we leave those run of the mill bands in a steaming wreck of molten skinny jeans and singed “Barbour” coats. In July 2014 we won the People's Choice Award of the Rock The House Competition which gave us the opportunity to receive our award at the House's of Parliament and in July 2013 we won Southport’s Band Royale competition beating 40 other bands to the top spot. Our busy calendar has had us playing around the North West and beyond. Events have included festivals, corporate functions weddings, pubs and two very special events for the original Doug Perkins (Managing Director of Specsavers) at the Specsavers headquarters on Guernsey.
