ABOUT

Looking to form rockabilly/blues/new rockabilly band to perform out in the area. No drama. Must be willing to rehearse and play. Must have own equipment. Genre/style similar to Red Hot and Blue, Robert Gordon, Darrell Higham (The Enforcers, Imelda May, Kat Men), Elvis Sun Records, Carl Perkins, Beatles. I have a very unique and flexible voice that some have likened to Johnny Cash or Elvis Presley.
