THE SOUTHERN DIPLOMATS
Playing genuine 1950′s style raw, high energy no bullshit Rockabilly. Get ready for a good time, make sure you got your dancing shoes on.
The members of the Southern Diplomats have years and years of experience in bands under their belt, that have toured extensively in New Zealand, Australia and Europe, sold tens of thousands of albums and played at major psycho billy festivals worldwide.
With a dedicated following of Rock n Roll, Rockabilly and Swing dancers this band is not only great to listen to but also to watch. Its hard to sit still at a SlickBack Rockabilly gig.
This four piece features Mr Rockabilly Hood on vocals, Ross Fingers McGuire on lead guitar, Big Si slappin the double bass and Paul V8 on drums playing authentic rockabilly and rock n roll tunes made famous by Carl Perkins, Johnny Burnett, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochrane, Crazy Cavan, Elvis and many more stars of the 50s and 60s. Even Cliff Richard gets a nod with "Move It".
