Say Conway Twitty and Loretta had signed with Sun Records instead of MCA. Picture them playing “Feelins” at CBGB instead of the Opry. This is a quartet with decades of rockabilly pedigree as long as the train on one of the Appalachian wedding gowns Grey DeLisle wears onstage.
Eddie Clendening has played Elvis from Broadway to Vegas, and collectively this powerhouse band has worked with a sizeable chunk of the Country Music and Rock n Roll Halls of Fame.
Grammy-winning multi-hyphenate DeLisle adds her June to these Johnnies with explosive results, Jonny Bowler on upright bass and Jacob Woodside on guitar rounding out the pack. Those already familiar with the Blue Ribbon Boys will agree that DeLisle’s grit and glamour are an inspired addition to the family. Be sure to wear your dancing shoes, and a handkerchief might come in handy too, when she and Clendening blend their honeyed harmonies on one of their instant classic love-gone-wrong ballads.
