Rockabilly Riot

Rockabilly Riot - Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On!

That's right, I'll be performing for another month's edition of Rockabilly Riot at the Seahorse Tavern.

From the Facebook Event:

"Some people like to rock, some people like to roll ! But movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul!Let's have a party!"
Chris Martin - front man from The Trouble Shooters & Floyd Live from Live105

Musical Guests:
... Filly & the Flops - Montreal QC
Filly & the Flops combine elements of rockabilly, ’50s rock’n'roll and doo-wop . The voice of singer Felicity Hamer sports the conventional cutesy throat twinge prevalent in the rockabilly genre, while the chemistry of bassist E.B. Eaton and drummer Eric Thibodeau forms the backbone of the five-piece band’s fast-paced, kitschy sound.

The Whiskey Kisses- Halifax, NS
The Whiskey Kisses wear their influences on their sleeves, which just happen to be attached to western shirts.
The lost sounds of Gram Parsons, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, and many more are re-lived and re-loved.
The influences of these Kings & Queens of country music are echoed in the Kisses' original tunes, tunes that will have you crying in your beer or dancin' the two-step…or both!!!

Eddy Blake - Montreal QC
Eddy Blake is a stand up bassist/vocalist from Montreal. He is known for the rockabilly style bass playing, renowned for doing so well while literally standing atop his double bass. Eddy also has a sweet soulful Rockabilly Country voice, with a repertoire of Old Time and original material ranging from dark crushing ballads to the delightfully absurd.
Eddy fronted the Cockroaches, legendary Montreal punk rockabilly trio. During the band’s 5 years, they released one 7” ep on Solid Sex Lovie Doll Records and a full length CD on Real North Records. The band toured Europe and eastern Canada and were featured on the Bravo TV documentary Rockabilly 514.

Burlesque performance by the lovely Kay Licious
Kay Licious is a classic performer with a modern twist. Sexy, funny, usually both! With this curvy temptress you never know what delicious treat she’ll offer up next! Kay Licious has been with Pink Velvet Burlesque since 2006. She performs burlesque and bellydance in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
