THE STORY OF ROCKABILLY

Rockabilly is a variation of Rock 'n' Roll that originated in the southern states of the USA in the 1950s. The center of Rockabilly was Memphis, Tennessee - more exactly the world-famous Sun Records Studios, founded by Sam Philips. It was also the place where Elvis Presley recorded his first record. The first Rockabilly title is usually Bill Haley's hit Rock the Joint.


Characteristic for the Rockabilly sound is a double bass played by slap technique as well as an electrically amplified semi-acoustic guitar, often with delay effect. The sound was influenced by Fender amplifiers and guitars of the brands Gretsch, Gibson and Fender.


Classic artists and bands include Elvis Presley, Bill Haley & His Comets, Johnny Cash, Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Janis Martin, Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnette, Roy Orbison, Warren Smith, Glen Glenn, Eddie Bond, Billy Lee Riley, Wanda Jackson and The Collins Kids.


In the 1980s, a second wave of Rockabilly also known as Neo Rockabilly or Modern Rockabilly grew up. Pioneers were the band Stray Cats of guitarist Brian Setzer, who played Rockabilly with influences from Punk and New Wave. Besides the Stray Cats bands and musicians like Polecats, Imelda May, Restless, The Hillbilly Moon Explosion, The Sharks, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, The Jets, Hillbilly Hellcats and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys belong to the well-known new groups.
