LA City Swingers
This amazing group blends raging Rockabilly, sultry Blues, and toe-tappin’ Swing into a sound for fans of IMELDA MAY, BRIAN SETZER, AMY WINEHOUSE and even THE YEAH YEAH YEAHS.
They have appeared in Paris with NICO DUPORTAL and SANSEVERINO; in Los Angeles with DICK DALE, DEKE DICKERSON and BIG SANDY; and at the infamous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood with members of Quiet Riot, Cheap Trick & Kiss.
Their songs are also making quite a splash on American television, as heard on LIFETIME CHANNEL and COMEDY CENTRAL as well as network TV. The title track GIMME MO! Was co-written with Rock artist JESSE BLAZE SNIDER (son of TWISTED SISTER’S DEE), and the classic I WANT YOU TO BE MY BABY is sung hilariously in English, French, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese, with guest stars NBC TV crooner DOUGLAS ROEGIERS, Japanese Rockabilly sensation EITARO SAKO and retro music royalty JASON EOFF on keys (The Outta Sites).
Piano Rock Tribute
Presenting a fun-filled tribute to the legends of piano-rock including Elton John (“Take Me To The Pilot,” “Honky Cat”), Billy Joel (“My Life” & “Big Shot”), Billy Preston (“Nothing From Nothing”), Little Richard (“Keep a Knockin’”), Leon Russell (“Tightrope”), Stevie Wonder (“Living’ For The City”), Bruce Hornsby (“The Way It Is”), Coldplay (“Clocks”), Jerry Lee Lewis (“Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On”), and more.
Made up of an all-star cast of Los Angeles musicians, they have carefully crafted a powerful set of music paying homage to piano-rock’s most iconic artists. These longtime friends – each with their own impressive list of credits – have come together to present a collection of songs close to their hearts performed with a sincerity and conviction that will uplift and entertain any audience. Unlike other tribute acts, these men are not performing material from any specific artist, but rather presenting the iconic classics of the great piano-rock genre that have left an indelible mark on pop music history, as well as select tracks from contemporary artists who are carrying the piano-rock torch into the new millennium.
