Hey Southern Calif. dancers:
Hillbilly Jazz returns to Campus JAX with the Screamin’ Rebel Angels plus The Martinez Bros. on Sunday May 15.
Screamin’ Rebel Angels’ unrelenting and hi-octane original music reimagines the legacy of rock ‘n roll, rockabilly, and rhythm ‘n blues into a contemporary sound. Their thrilling live performances are packed with primal passion and authenticity. The sound is unapologetically their own, and they take their audiences on an exhilarating adventure into an untamed world of dangerous women, broken hearts, courage and conviction.
Leading the band is Laura Palmer, a versatile multi-instrumentalist, song-writer, and producer. Equally adept at slapping out the rhythm on an upright bass or picking on a big ol’ Gretsch, Laura Palmer’s on stage presence and powerful vocals have garnered international attention and acclaim, including earning the 2020 Ameripolitan Award for “Rockabilly Female of the Year.” Add in stratospheric lead guitar and drums and the combination is a truly unique sound not to be missed.
“Some poor jaded souls spend a lot of time whining about what happened to “real rock and roll.” Those folks have clearly never heard Screamin’ Rebel Angels, a band that combines old-time rockabilly sounds with punk attitude on the new album Heel Grinder.” —Gary Schwind, Glide Magazine, February 2019
Opening the Hillbilly Jazz show are the Martinez Bros. quartet at 5 pm, with SRA hitting the stage by 6 pm.
The Martinez Brothers band is the culmination of decades of musical experience, fronted by Aaron on upright bass and Al on guitar. Both brothers trade off on lead vocals and also sing rich harmonies, like only brothers can. Joined by Ric Martinez on acoustic guitar and Mario Perea on drums, Martinez Brothers play a variety of danceable musical styles, including Blues, Country, Tex- Mex, and more.
