Summer Swing Spectacular starring Stompy Jones and Roy Rapid & the Rhythm Rock Trio
A-Town Agency presents: Friday June 28th, 2013
SUMMER SWING SPECTACULAR starring!
Little David Rose's thumpin' stand-up bass, the double-shuffle drumming of Lee Beary, and the bounce piano of John Cocuzzi provide the rhythmic foundation of the band's jump style. Riffing on top is the trumpet sound of Robert Dehlinger and Erv Ervin on the saxophone. These two fellas create the fireworks of vintage rhythm and blues. The charming Hank Maninger on vocals and lead guitar have become a trademark of Stompy Jones.
ROY RAPID & the RHYTHM ROCK TRIO
San Diego Reader Music Critic Bart Mendoza describes the group as... “Mixing country, roots rock and rockabilly. Roy Rapid and the Rhythm Rock Trio have come up with an authentic sound that captures their musical heroes. The band strives for an authenticity that extends from vintage gear, to their dress, as they turn out nice originals in the spirit of their influences. With excellent musicianship and smooth-crooning from Rapid, this band is a lot of fun to watch and listen to.
