10.30am - 11am


The Band was born out of a passion for early 50s music. As lead guitarist Mark will tell you. Its about playing a style of music that fits well in nearly all situations. From the beat and energy of rock & Roll & rockabilly, to the Cruisey sounds of Western Swing. All delivered by the dynamic vocals of Karen Ritchens ( Miss Kitty). Songs by artists such as Johhny Burnette, Carl Perkins, Patsy Cline, Wanda Jackson, early Elvis, Brenda Lee, Eddie Cochran, and the bands original material.
