Uncle Red are a Scottish based rockabilly band with just a hint of country. To our amazement, it seems that rockabilly doesn't seem as popular up here, at least in terms of musicians. So far our audiences beg to differ, and long may that continue!
Band/artist history
Colin & Donald (friends) organised a jam night at a local pub: a mixture of Scottish Folk, old-time Americana and rockabilly seems to work. From the jam nights there's 3 or 4 bands on the go. Uncle Red is now Big John on guitar and vocals, the other john on washtub?slap bass and Mike on accordian/Backing vocals.and Ian gets his big drum and beats it Colin still joins in at times.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Oh yes! Live is where it's at: especially in the UK, there seems to have been an(very) healthy upsurge in Live music.
Your musical influences
rockabilly, rock'n'roll, elvis, johnny cash, Stray Cats,clash, punk (when noone is looking)
What equipment do you use?
Gretsch guitars, Fender amps, honner accordians, doghouse bass and kenyan tea chests.oh aye an a big ol drum.
