The Royal Crowns / Bio

Formed in the summer of 1990, Toronto’s Royal Crowns have been blending rockabilly, jazz, rock and roll, country and surf into a musical genre all their own. Their critically acclaimed “32 Miles from Memphis” made the National Post’s Top Canadian Albums of All Time; and landed them in the Disney channel movie “Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire” where they performed 3 songs.

Over the years they’ve been joined on stage by the likes of Angus and Malcom Young of AC-DC; Robert Gordon, Ron Sexsmith, Memphis guitar great Steve Cropper, Russell Decarle & Keith Grass of Prairie Oyster, Greg Keelor and James Gray of Blue Rodeo, New York Saxaphone great “Blue” Lou Marini – to name a few.

The Royal Crowns are led by guitarist-singer Danny Bartley, a former member of Shotgun Shack and the Razor Backs. Danny is probably the leading rockabilly guitarist in the country. In his spare time Danny enjoys country life, camping and good home style cooking.

Holding down the bottom end, on the upright bass is Jason Adams. Jason's rare moments away from the band stand are filled with Hot Rodding his 53 Ford, graphic arts and finding the perfect pomade.

On drums, vocals and wisecracks is Teddy Fury, a former member of the seminal rockabilly outfit the Bopcats, he puts the swing in the thing. Teddy’s time off the skins is consumed by long drives in his ’59 Desoto, late night scrabble games and Indian cuisine.
