What to Expect
WE bring our own instrument and P.A., and provide background music via iPod during breaks. For outdoor shows the client is required to provide a cover for sun shading and rain.
We are a three piece Rockabilly band in the mold of Stray Cats and Reverend Horton Heat. Our instrumentation consists of guitar, upright bass, drums, and vocals. The band formed in 1994, and has released several albums, all available on Spotify, Beats Music, and Googleplay.
In addition we have toured the U.S. multiple times, as well as 13 European countries. You can also find Hillbilly Hellcats on Soundcloud and Youtube. In addition, the band's music is heard regularly on T.V. shows.
For public concerts we play our original songs. At private functions we will add well-known covers from the Rockabilly, Country, Blues, Surf, and Classic Rock genres, including artists such as
Stray Cats, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale, The Ventures, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Burnette.
We have flown to many out-of-state shows, and will drive anywhere within Colorado.
