IMPOSSIBLE to put a label on the Good Reverend Ray and his band "The Mother Flower". What started off as a sh*t kicking return to old school country has morphed into blues, rockabilly and surf punk! Any given show could be the Good Reverend playing solo with his old Supro archtop or electrified surf-punk and rockabilly with his partner in crime The Pugilist on drums and percussion. Come see what all the fuss is about!

The Oysters Rockabilly Band

Band Contact: Greg Giotopoulos
Saturday, May 17 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Elvis's attitude, the Everly's harmonies, Carl Perkins's hooks, Bo Diddley's humor, Link Wray's waling solos, LIttle Richard's boundless energy, Sam Cooke's smoothness and behind everything that driving rhythm that makes you get out of your chair to swing and stomp. We like to say we combine all these elements! Four musicians who came together through a common love of early rock and roll, we are inspired by the music of the time of Sun and Chess.

George O'Neill - Lead Guitar and Vocal
Liam - Rhythm Guitar and Vocal
Brick - Drums and Vocal
Brian - Bass and Vocal
