Hillbilly Swing

Three piece combo - vocal harmonies, guitar, upright bass, and drums - performing melodic originals and vintage covers of swing, honky-tonk, and 50s rock and roll in a timeless, upbeat fashion. Great for all ages!

Reviews

On that Rockabilly skeleton, (the blackcrabs) graft elements of jazz (it’s so good to hear some different chords variations), bop, western swing (lot of steel guitar on that one), Beatles sense of melody and plain old rock’n’roll. All that rolled into one makes the Black Crabs sound. Open minded and more than able with their instruments, they have no boundaries to stop or refrain their creativity and the result is always imaginative and surprising.
– Fred “Virgil” Turgis (The Rockabilly Chronicles)
