Have your say

AUTHENTIC rockabilly returns to the Railway Club with the appearance of the highly-acclaimed Warren Scott and the Memphis Playboys on Saturday, December 18.

Instantly recognisable as three members of one of the country’s leading lights in the rock ‘n’ roll musical genre, the band say their western bop music is the roots of the sleazeabilly that is their alter ego Jack Rabbit Slim.

Compare to JRS’s albeit distinctive but modern rockabilly sound, the Warren Scott side of singer Bob Butfoy and the boys has a more original 1950s feel.

But as with all Bob’s bands, there is still a definite, unmistakeable swagger and panache to proceedings, which was ably demonstrated when the brought the house down at last year’s Hemsby Rock ‘n’ Roll weekender.

The four-piece combo will shake the shack with two powerhouse sets, comprising self-penned material and cover versions of songs by the likes of original rock ‘n’ rollers Johnny Powers, Pat Cupp and Slim Rhodes.

Keeping the jivers, boppers and strollers on their feet throughout the night will be Rock-inn Rock ‘n’ Roll Club house DJs Swing Bop Boogie.

Doors open at 7.30pm and admission is £7.
