Hailing from an era where Rock ‘n’ Roll was King and pinup girls were Queen, the Rockabilly Ravens bring you a real taste of Rockabilly music. Formed in the Alabama State Penitentiary, inspired by the original Hound Dog and his Jailhouse Rock, the band was originally a front to entertain the guards, while inmates worked on tunneling out of Sing Sing. The Ravens are a collection of the baddest Rock ‘n’ Rollers who know how to entertain.

After gaining notoriety, they decided to change their names and take the show on the road. Playing every honky-tonk bar in the South, the Ravens developed a reputation as the essential Rockabilly band. With leather jackets, tattoos and their very own Raven–haired pinup girl, the Rockabilly Ravens get any party started with high energy, up-tempo Rockabilly music. A selection of classic hits and modern anthems bring the Ravens soaring into the 21st century. Rock ‘n’ Roll is alive and well, and in good hands!

The Rockabilly Ravens balance timeless rockabilly classics with arrangements of contemporary hits done in the rockabilly style. They’re a refreshing, fun and energetic class act, guaranteed to appeal to a broad and diverse demographic. More importantly, this music, with its infectious rhythm and toe-tapping appeal will inject the fun factor into your event. So spoil your guests with the RockabillyRavens, a guaranteed winner!
