MOCKINGBIRD MUSIC 50's Rock and Ryhthm and Blues BAND The 1950s
witnessed the birth of rock and roll music, which would later spawn other related genres such as rockabilly, garage rock and pop music, among a huge myriad of other derivations. In short, it is one of this decade's most defining musical styles. Rock and roll was originated from an immediate fusion of several styles. These include rhythm and blues and gospel, country & western, blues and pop elements.
Our 50's band will focus on Rock and Roll and Ryhthm and Blues artists of the era which may include Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, The Coasters, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke, and any other suggestions you have.
Band Leader Mike Mchugh has a true passion for this style of music and incorporates many of these artists into his sets as a performing musician. Mike hopes to bring together players who share a love for this music, and help them understand what makes these songs so uniquie and iconic, thereby teaching them to recreate and honor the music.
If you have a better than beginner aptitude on your instrument (or voice) and would like to stretch yourself into this geniune American style of music, then join Mike and MockingBird for an experience you will not forget.
Mike is looking for Drums, Guitar, Bass, Keys, Vocalists and Saxophone players.
(Sax players may be as young as Juniors in High School) .
