"The name says it all – this three-piece of guitar, double bass and drums serves up that warm, 1950s-evocative rockabilly healthily dosed in country and blues with setlists made up of songs from the era, including a mash-up of Johnny Cash’s “Blistered” with the Bonanza theme and “Sweet Love on My Mind” by Johnny Burnette."
