About Rockabilly Strangers

The Rockabilly Strangers look, sound, and perform like true professionals. The band plays a mix of rockabilly from the 50's and 80's, surf, and roots rock and roll. The ultimate goal is to have fun, entertain, and introduce audiences to different styles of music. They strive to be a local favorite in the southwest, and to continue playing local festivals, private parties, car shows, corporate events, and night clubs.

Amazing Wedding Reception Band!

By Rafael G. on August 28, 2014

The Rockabilly Strangers played our wedding reception in Santa Fe, NM. These guys killed it! Not only does the music rock, these guys are just great, nice, professional guys. They kept the majority of our wedding dancing until they kicked out of the venue! If I ever have a party again I'd book these guys in a heart beat. Thanks Rockabilly Strangers for the amazing party last May!
