Four Star Combo @ Smoketown Creekside
Saturday, June 4, 7:30pm-10:30pm, Free Admission
400 Sagner Ave Suite 100
Join us for high-energy 1950’s Rockabilly and Honky Tonk from Washington, DC!
Four Star Combo is the brainchild of bandleader, Ron Scott, who has a long resume in the East Coast ‘Roots’ music scene. The sound of The Combo is high-energy 1950’s Rockabilly (think early Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins), and Honky Tonk (Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Lefty Frizzell, etc), played without any pretense of modernization or any kind of damn-fool ‘fusion’ of styles. The band engages the audience with a mix of Four Star originals and covers ranging from well-known to utterly obscure. Appearing in 1950’s ‘cat’ clothes, playing vintage instruments, including the classic upright ‘slap’ bass, the band and it’s lively stage show are typically met with a raucous welcome, even from crowds unfamiliar with the style of music.
