  • Regular price $12.99

The second full length release from Altar Boys alum with their rockabilly altar ego band The Altar Billies.

Really great rockabilly for fans of Brian Setzer, Johnny Cash and the like.

Toe-tappin rockabilly swing and gospel with a help'n of "country-billy" that honors the simple, and authentic sound of one of the purist forms of American roots music.

The Altar Billies are a swell rockabilly trio that reside in Orange County, California. They are fronted by guitarist/vocalist Michael W Stand and feature the slappin' upright sound of Johnny X on bass and Chuck Cummings on Drums. The group is keen on playing hits by all of the rockabilly greats that span musical history, as well as newly penned originals. The Altar Billies are one of many bands that have takien a "liking" to a new and rapidly growing alt-country/rockabilly and swing trend. Their music is a fancy mixture of something new, with a wonderful sound that's been around for quite sometime now and is rich with tradition.

The group has been playing all over the Southern California area for about 8 years now. They perform their family friendly music for a wide variety of audiences that include both young and old. The Altar Billies have been featured at such venues as the Orange County Fair, Tustin Street Fair, Orange Street Fair, Fullerton Farmer's Market, Silverado Canyon Concert Series and are regulars at the Downtown Santa Ana Farmer's Market. They have also appeared at many clubs in the OC area including the Anaheim House of Blues, The Coach House and The Observatory. The fellas have had the privilege of opening up for several legendary rockabilly groups including OC icon Big Sandy, as well as for Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats
