June 29, The Bellfuries, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys
Bellfuries are the 2016 Ameripolitan Music Awards Best Rockabilly Band!
Big Sandy is the two-time Ameripolitan winner for 2016 Best Rockabilly Group and 2015 Rockabilly Male.
The Bellfuries’ debut album on Hi-Style Records, Workingman’s Bellfuries, hoists the band to new heights, drawing upon a deep well of musical styles. Early country, rockabilly and 80’s pop sounds are woven throughout eleven tracks, with Joey Simeone’s soaring lead vocals reminding listeners that this record isn’t some dusty artifact plucked from the archives.
With razor-sharp, groove-oriented production from label owner and acclaimed producer Jimmy Sutton (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge), Workingman’s Bellfuries is a refreshing iteration of The Bellfuries’ sound; tinkling boogie piano, driving double bass rhythms and innovative-meets-traditional rockabilly guitar licks make the album an easy fit for a juke-joint dance floor. But it is Simeone’s vivid songwriting–his exploration of the complexities of love and loss– that makes Workingman’s Bellfuries instantly relatable to every listener.
Don’t let its mid-century aesthetics fool you; Workingman’s Bellfuries is a vibrant contemporary rock and roll record.
Followers of Big Sandy know what to expect when he performs at Don the Beachcomber- tight playing, smooth vocals and a song selection unparallelled in the free world.
