Classic Rockabilly
The Limitations

Sunday, July 27th | 2:00 p.m.

Come and enjoy this trio of experienced and knowledgeable musicians. The band explores the great rockabilly era of popular music prior to the British Invasion. Their main focus is on Sun Records which spawned: Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and many others who had a major impact on the American music scene. Their approach to the music is how the earliest of this music was played, sparsely, no drums, at speeds and volumes that allowed the purity of the musicianship to fully come through. That's what hits your sensibilities, making it fun and interesting!
