Do you love live rock n roll, Motown, oldies, and blues (or any combination of such) from the 50s through the 80s? ... So do we!
Saw this band for the first time at Corydon Live. Never heard of them before, but my husband and I really enjoyed them. They were part of the King Killer Man In Black Show. I hope they come back soon.
These guys are one of the greatest 3-piece bands you will ever have the pleasure of hearing. Perfect harmonies, talented musicians, playing multi-instruments, you CANNOT go wrong with the Cruisers. Want to hear a song? Request it and most likely you will hear whether they have played it before or not. Do your guests or family and friends a favor and get this group to perform at your event!
My wife and I went to a show at the Merle Travis Theater this weekend. The show was "King, Killer, Man In Black" featuring the music of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash.
Anyway, this three piece band was the house band for the show. WOW, what top notch musicians. They only did maybe a half-dozen songs on their own, but in my opinion, they stole the show. Their harmonies were really good. I would like to see a full show with them soon.
We saw these guys at the Miller House restaurant. So much sound for just a three piece band. Great harmonies and a great selection of songs you don't hear bands do anymore.
Me and my husband got married a month ago and we had then play at the reception and they were amazing!
Response from The Hot Rod Cruisers:
Thank you so much. The pleasure was all ours. We had a blast!
My husband and I had a great time at their show. It's easy to tell that The Hot Rod Cruisers enjoy what they play, and they do it very well. We talked with them after the show...what a great group of guys. We'll definitely catch their act again in the future!
