THE DELRAY ROCKETS
Friday 9th February 2024 - Saturday 10th February 2024
This popular Worcestershire band is taking to the Drummonds stage for the first time! don’t miss out on a great night!
The Delray Rockets are made up of Gaz Le Bass, Dr Croc & J.d Davies and although we have a love for all genres of Rockabilly, from way back 50’s traditional Rockabilly through to Neo Rockabilly, we had a yearning to push the genre just that little bit further.
The thought was to rev it up yet another gear from the Neo Rockabilly era of the ’80’s and create a really energetic, hard hitting ‘in ya face’ sound to bring it up to the modern times; you could say putting the ‘Rock’ into Rockabilly.
Each of the 3 members drew on their wide and varied influences from their teenage years, right the way through to their modern day influences. This melting pot of styles created a form of music we can only describe as ‘Hi Octane Rockabilly’. I suppose you could liken it to the ‘Hot Rodders’ stripping down a classic, adding way more power, but still keeping all of the style.
Don’t be fooled by the onstage setup of a Double Bass, Gretsch guitar and stripped down drum kit, looks can be deceiving. Once the amps are flicked on and the first beat is struck, hold onto your hats cos’ you’re in for a hell of a ride.
