Burnt Out Hot Rod Car CD
The Shakedown Combo perform with the attitude that Rockabilly can be modern and contemporary, not simply a sound from past decades revived by cover bands whenever retro becomes fashionable. The track-list of their debut album Burnt Out Hot Rod Car (produced by Danny B Harvey) displays that they favour original material over reworking the old classics.
However, they don't dismiss the original rockers, or the 1980s revivalists.
Rockabilly artists from both eras play a big part in influencing the sound and style of The Shakedown Combo, giving them a solid bass to move forward from.
Rockabilly fans will love the twanging guitar and slapping double bass that typify the genre, but the catchy upbeat songs and modern production invite wider appeal.
The Shakedown Combo's line-up consists of two girls (Gill on vocals and Miss Kimmi on upright bass) and two guys (Davey Lee on guitar and Zurco on Drums) who together blast out Red Hot Bass Slappin' Beat Whackin' Rockabilly Twang!
