A Rockabilly & Blues New Year's Eve Extravaganza: Rock-A-Sonics
A Rockabilly & Blues New Year's Eve Extravaganza: Rock-A-Sonics
In January 2014 an extraordinary teenaged singer hopped a time machine from the fifties and landed on the doorstep of four Washington DC area rockabilly musicians. They initially got together just to play a single show (a Buddy Holly tribute) but quickly realized the combination should become a regular thing, and the Rock-A-Sonics were born. Their deep playlist and variety of styles and tempos have made them a favorite of the DC/MD/VA/PA swing dance community.

The Rock-A-Sonics are playing regularly at clubs, carshows, dances, and street festivals throughout the mid Atlantic area. They've appeared nationally at the Viva Las Vegas rockabilly weekender in 2016 and 2017, the New England Shake-Up weekender in 2017, and twice at
Musikfest in Bethlehem Pa.

Also at: Bethesda Blues and Jazz, Pearl Street Warehouse, Iota, Hill Country BBQ, Gas House Dancehall, Roxy and Dukes, Gypsy Sally’s, Rock and Roll Hotel, The Hamilton, Glen Echo Park, Barns of Wolftrap, Night of 100 Elvises, Takoma Park Streetfest, JV’s, Jammin’ Java, and classic car shows like the Hot Rod Rumble, Mobtown Greaseball, Gasket Goons, and Jalopy Showdown.

Members of The Rock-A-Sonics have played with Marti Brom, Deke Dickerson, Collins Kids, Sleepy LaBeef, Jumpin' Jupiter, J.P. McDermott and Western Bop, the Hurtt Brothers, Four Star Combo, Pink and Black, Out Behind The Barn, Kiti Gartner, Natty Beaux, The Peashooters, Old Line Skiffle Combo, Daryl Davis, Bill Kirchen, Jake Starr and the Delicious Fullness, Nils Lofgren, and Ringo Starr.
