Rockabilly Group Creeps Into Town

Who: The Creepers and Jimmy D
Where: Mayfield Ex Services Club
When: Friday February 3, 2006

SYDNEY rockabilly band The Creepers had such a great response in Newcastle last month that it is coming back for more.

The four-piece will perform at Mayfield Ex-Services Club on Friday night.

For the past five years The Creepers have been playing their brand of '50s-style rockabilly to crowds across the east coast and have become renowned for their wild stage antics.

The band was formed in late 1999 by Clayton Johnson (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jordan Colley (lead guitar), Sonny Hinwood (drums) and Glenn Jeffries (double bass) after they discovered a shared interest in early rock'n'roll and the original rockabilly sounds from the south of the United States. Together they have put together a show that combines the classic sound of rockabilly mixed with their own distinct youthful exuberance.

Influences stretch from Carl Perkins, to Gene Vincent and Roy Orbison to Go Cat Go, Brian Setzer and The Stray Cats. The Creepers have been one of the major attractions at the Elvis Festival held at Maitland and Coolangatta's Wintersun Festival. After the successful release of their first EP, All Soled Out , in 2001, the band returned to the studio in March 2002 to produce its first full-length album, Monkey Wrench. The Creepers have just released their third recording, Quiff Hanger. Catch them on stage at Mayfield Ex- Services from 7pm. Entry is free.
