Tennessee Voodoo Coupe have created quite a name for themselves in their hometown of Toronto, with their fun-loving, high-energy live shows, their efforts to create and promote Rockabilly music in their community and their innovative style of “100 proof reckless hillbilly jive.”
With legendary "Swing Punk"pioneer Big Rude Jake on vocals and acoustic guitar, and Steve Good on the doghouse bass, TVC round out their lineup with Stevie “Six String” Abrams on the twangy Gretsch guitar, and Dashing Don Decouchay on a minimal standup drum kit. (Don is known and respected as the former drummer of the classic Toronto powerhouse band, the Razorbacks)
With this classic rockabilly arrangement, TVC tackles a broad mix of music, leaning heavily on early rockabilly, country, and some ’40s jump blues, along with plenty of originals and a few unexpected surprises. TVC have been rocking stages across town for a couple of years, and in 2008 launched the East End Rockabilly Riot series, which has since become the premier semi annual Rockabilly event in Ontario.
