Rockabilly, rock and roll, hot rods, drive-In movies, car hops, surf music, early Elvis and Sun Records! It’s that classic sound and look of the 50s and 60s that influences the Texas based band The Vinyl Stripes!
With their skinny ties, pork pie hats, Gretsch guitars, slappin’ standup bass and retro rocking drums, The Vinyl Stripes perform those great rockabilly, rock and roll and surf classics: Sun Records hits from Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee; rockers by Gene Vincent, The Beatles, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly; surf music by Dick Dale, Ventures and many other great artists of that era! The Vinyl Stripes also have many new original songs that even sound like they were from those long ago rocking days that you will love!
The band has performed for just about every kind of event from concerts to festivals, performing arts organizations, city summer concert series, fundraisers, and are favorites at many casinos. They also perform for swing dances, 1950s and ‘60s theme events, and for all kinds of private events. They have opened for many famous classic rock bands and are sought after for car and motorcycle shows both regionally and nationally.
The Vinyl Stripes have also had many of their original songs used on several big TV shows and feature films!
