That looks like a great time waiting to happen Mac! Killer line-up. Being all the way over on the West Coast I wouldn't be able to make it this year but is this an annual event? EDIT: Just saw on the poster that it is an annual event. I've always wanted to visit New England so maybe a trip next year is in order.

Have fun with the Car Show hosting!

Yeah I heard the single Lovin Arms. So glad they recorded with Jimmy! Can't wait for the album to be released.

This is my favourite off the album. "Make the mystery no more". I think they already sell the album on their shows. A friend gave me the CD after he's seen them as he thought I could like it. And how I do.

The BopThrills have joined the roster following a minor change to the band line-up. We'll be heading over from RI to kick things off at the Main Stage on Friday (9/25) night.

We're very excited to have been invited to New England's largest & only Rockabilly Weekender. 2015 is year three for this amazing event which is growing every year. Many thanks to Beck Rustic.

Here's a flick link on YouTube:

Scott, you're the guitarist for the Bop Thrills and Rollin' Pins right? I play with Johnny Custom in Diablogato. You guys were great at TTs a few weeks back, I was lovin' your playing. Looking forward to seeing you guys again at the shake-up.

Yep, l look forward to this year's festivities, including the annual car show. This should be my second opportunity to catch Diablogato.

Always a good time.

With The Rollin' Pins farewell show only a few weeks away, I will miss playing with my friend & amazing bass player Johnny Custom.

For those who know The Rollin' Pins, Johnny Carlevale has just announced that the band will be performing it's final show Saturday 8/8 at The Return To Milltown 9 in Sturbridge, MA.

After being a fixture in the New England Rockabilly scene for nearly 10 years with The Rollin' Pins, Johnny has decided to call it quits.

I look forward to joining Johnny, Mr. Custom, & Snake for a farewell send-off.

Godaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn The Bellfuries latest album is no joke!

I can't stop listening to it. Recorded by Jimmy Sutton at Hi-Style, it's got that vintage tone, vibe, and warmth but with modern clarity.

I can't wait to catch their set Friday night.
