Voodoo Swing

Voodoo Swing @ 910 Live

In our cyclical pop culture, fads give way to other fads — which often recycle looks and vibes of the past — every couple of years. Rockabilly has bubbled up to the pop culture mainstream over and over again since the 1950s, but for Phoenix-based rockabilly aces Voodoo Swing, the style and culture are no fad. Since 1993, the band, comprising vocalist/guitarist Shorty Kreutz, drummer Leeroy Nelson, and double-bass beater Tommy Collins, has kept its collective foot on the pedal when brandishing its brand of "rip it up" rock music. To celebrate 20 years of straight-ahead rockabilly, the group is celebrating with a new record scheduled for release on February 20. The band calls the 14-song collection, Fast Cars, Guitars, Tattoos & Scars, its "finest work." The trio already is set to share its sound with a European tour this summer, but before that, the guys will be hitting the stage in Tempe as a part of an all-day festival full of cars, dazzling dames, and rockabilly at the Motorhouse USA and Bonehead Striping presentation "Cars Kulture and Chaos."
