This is the feedback from the enormous number of venues who’ve booked us - plus electronic ratings. We would be delighted to play at your function Rocka Hillbillies have been Rocking in Scotland since early 2014. A band devoted to recreating the authentic sounds of 50s and early 60's Rock'N'Roll. Just think of the key bands that influenced the Rolling Stones, Beatles, and CCR ,etc. -and the answer is Elvis, Carl Perkins, Everly Bros, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, and Chuck Berry. ROCKA HILLBILLIES play songs from every 50's/60's artist that we've listed above! We're very reliable, business-like, and most importantly…we play Classic Rock'N'Roll on a note for note basis with the originals. We play a large range of Social Clubs in addition to Private Functions, Holiday camps, Music Festivals…and a selected range of Scotland’s popular pubs. We’ve played from Lossiemouth to Dunbar Music Festival. We concentrate in the Edinburgh and Lothians vicinity for most engagements. Our drummer, Bill, is a living legend…, a veteran of the original rockabilly scene, who famously backed Johnny Cash on his first UK tour. Additional videos are on the web FULL Details: Band's web site We play constantly throughout the year because the public keep requesting that we come back!..
