The Sweet Chariots / Press

“The Maddox Brothers and Rose are widely considered the pioneers of rockabilly by music historians, critics, and experts alike.. Though the siblings may have hitchhiked to California from Alabama and developed their sound in Modesto, the rockabilly genre is deeply rooted in the South. Closer to that southern home, the rockabilly torch is kept burning by the collective hand of Port Saint Lucie trio the Sweet Chariots. Complete with cuffed blue jeans and styled pompadours, these cats are straight out of an S.E. Hinton novel. However, there's more to their brand than greaser style. The Sweet Chariots are an incredibly talented bunch, wowing audiences not only with their undeniable command of the genre but with their balls-out live presence. Slapping you harder than an upright bass with fast-paced, two-minute-long ditties, they are the quintessential embodiment of rockabilly.”

“The Sweet Char­i­ots' show has got to be one of the best work­outs you could hope to find. I don’t see how you could hear these songs live and not get up and dance until you either drop or Warren’s voice gives out.”

“Although many of these bands are often tagged as rockabilly or its evil cousin psychobilly, only the Sweet Chariots could accurately be described as such. Jerky, Jerry Lee Lewis-style vocals over rapid-fire bass in two-minute-long songs cover topics such as shimmying till the break of dawn at places where the rock 'n' roll plays a night long.”

“Rockabilly revivalists have, for too long, rested on their visual style to carry the day instead of bringing the motherfucking heat onstage. But not these cats. The sheer rock ass-kickery of their frenzied, hard-hitting punkabilly stands way taller than their pompadours. These guys don’t just wear the clothes and pose, they live the spirit. Most importantly, they earn it the hard, physical way onstage. ”
