    Brain Drain Records' The Tremors’ fan base spans far and wide, across all types of people. Whether the crowd is full of college students, swing dance enthusiasts, or Hells Angels, you can bet The Tremors will have the crowd jumping with their brand of whipsaw rockabilly as pure, authentic and strong as Tennessee sour mash. Through passionate research and exploration into rock'n'roll history, the band has created their own unique blend of style by combining classic Sun Records era rockabilly with the reckless abandon of late 70’s punk rock. Rockabilly music has a universal appeal. It's the music of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Feathers and countless others who plied their trade in the neon-soaked, late-night dives and juke-joints across the new south when pharohs ruled from Memphis like in days of old. Its effect on popular music can still be heard to this day. No living soul can resist its appeal. Balanced with some mod sorbet from hosts The Raving Knaves​. "An unholy marriage of high octane late ’60s Detroit rock’n’roll and late ’70s English mod rock.” —Jordan Green - Triad City Beat "The power pop masters..." —Rae Alton - Avant Greensboro "An unnerving love of sweaty bar rock." —Lewie Peckham - For the Love of Punk http://www.theravingknaves.com
