Photographer's Note

No blue suede shoes here, just some young rockabilly's clad in black from tip to toe. Add to that the generator power supply, the large stereo system, the hair dryers and the hairspray they lugged with them for this little gathering and you have yourself a rockabilly rockout in the park. It is quite common to see these guys gathering (usually small groups of 5-10) on weekends for a little dance session in the park.

So what is rockabilly - quite possibly a hard term to pin down. In simplest words, it's a blend of blues, country and gospel sounds of American music that were prevalent, up to the mid 1950's. Mixed with a heavier beat by a host of recognizable names like Elvis, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis to get your start. These are just some of the names of rockabilly artists most people have heard.
