The Swang Brothers play American music from the 50s and 60s, combining a heady mix of traditional country, rockabilly, pop, and blues. The three-piece outfit of thumping upright bass, driving acoustic guitar and twanging electric guitar covers a diverse array of artists including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Johnny Horton, Englebert Humperdinck, Gene Vincent, Neil Diamond , Merle Haggard, Chet Atkins, and many others while mixing in some choice original tunes to round it all out. The band can turn on a dime, playing an all-out rockabilly rave-up one moment, then downshifting into a country ballad the next, followed by a burning instrumental number.
